You will like it differently if you see it from different points. It may seem like an ordinary river first. But when you go close to the Iguacu Falls in a boat, you will get amazed. The falls and the river go hand in hand...More

If you seen the waterfall before you will not be impressed here. If you will see them after - you will forget the rest of the river.

We first saw it from the bridge, separating Brazil and Argentina, then we saw it much closer when walking on the catwalks to get to the falls. Even very close to the roaring falls, it was amazingly quiet and full of big fish.

We took a boat tour up river to the falls, starting a few miles below the falls, but still inside the national park. We opted for the "wet boat" which goes well inside the splash zone. Prepare to be soaked to the skin--but to have...More

It is hard to comprehend how an average kind of river can produce one of mother natures wonders -the Iguazu Falls

The river is the lifeblood of the region, and so the development that has taken place would not have happened but for the river, so you really can't get away from the river; and it forms the international border too.
