Iguazu Falls - Argentine Side

The Argentinean side of the falls provides a more intimate contact with the whole Iguazu Falls experience.  A free train carries visitors from the gate to the falls, themselves.  The small open train has three different stations and travels through the tropical forest.

There are also many paved walking trails throughout the reserve; you may choose to walk the 1/3 mile to the falls on a trail through the subtropical vegetation, perhaps catching glimpses of wildlife and certainly multitudes of butterflies.  You are then presented with the choice of the upper or lower circuits.

UPPER CIRCUIT

The upper circuit (Circuito Superior) consists of trails and bridges that run along the top of the falls.  The views are FANTASTIC!  You are able to look down over many of the largest falls including the San Martin falls and San Martin Island.

This circuit is a bit less than 1/2 mile and has six lookouts and viewing areas.  The catwalks present spectacular views of "Devil's Throat, the premier collection of fourteen of the highest most powerful of the falls.

LOWER CIRCUIT

The lower circuit "Circuit Inferior) leads to the base of the falls, where undoubtedly, you will be moistened by the spray of the might falls.  There is a boat ride to San Martin, an island that separates the falls.  This ferry ride takes you along the bottom of the San Martin falls.

The entire loop is about one mile long.  During the circuit, you will find yourself immersed in scenic nature full of sight, sounds, and aromas to entertain your senses.  There are eight lookout points to gather in the majesty of the largest of the falls.

RIVER RIDE

The "Grand Adventure" starts with a hike on narrow footpath that exudes the ambience of the subtropical ecosystem.  Multi-lingual guides point out areas of interest and narrate information along the way.  Then you are transported by open-air truck to five miles to a forest base of operations.  Then it is a staircase descent to the waiting power launches.

You then jet upstream along the river, mostly calm with some rapids.  Your approach to the spectacular falls is gradual, as it is a four mile ride.  Then you will go right up to the base of several of the falls.  The experience is incredible!  And yes, you will get wet.  The ride ends with disembarking on the Low Circuit dock.

 

 

 

 

"Our view was incredible. I know we keep using that word, but this is one of the few things in the world that is actually more amazing that our expectations, despite the foreknowledge that it is one of the wonders of the world."

The sheer power is overwhelming. You come face to face with raging sheets of water, with sprays so intense it seems as though geysers have erupted from below."

"...this fascinating jungle zone of red soil, giant butterflies, and comical toucans has more to offer than jaw-dropping waterfalls."

"As we approached the falls, we got good views up the Devil's Throat and along the wall of Argentine falls. We got close to the 3 Musketeers, then put the cameras away and got doused by the San Martin falls. Mom was in the front and got totally soaked, despite her rain poncho. The boat driver was a bit concerned about her, but was relieved when she laughed and enthusiastically told him to do it again. We went back in twice more, and it was LOTS of fun. "
