Iguazu Falls trip

Our three days travel itinerary to Iguazu Falls in Brazil, includes a day trip to the Argentine side and Devil’s Throat Trail.

Location and how to get there

The Iguaçu Falls are a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986 and one of the Seven Nature Wonders of the World.
With over 2,700 m of extension, 20 significant waterfalls and over 250 waterfalls is one of the largest and most impressive in the world.

They are located on the border between Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay, in the state of Paraná. Both Natural Parks (Argentina and Brazil) protects the region’s enchanting flora and fauna.

Day 1 Iguazu National Park Argentina Trail

Don’t miss it to visit the Argentine side of the Falls!! The Brazilian side is beautiful, you have a panoramic view, but on the Argentine side, you feel very close and can have a dimension of the greatness of the Falls.
Also, only from the Argentine side, you can make the trail to The Devil’s Throat Canyon.

Another Tipp, especially for the Argentinian side, is to bring some mineral water and snacks.
Our guide stopped at a supermarket before we arrived at the Park, the prices at Parque dos Hermanos are very high! Entrance to the Park for residents of Mercosur: 250 pesos.
For those who want to visit the Park for two days in a row, the second day has a 50% discount.

Devil’s Throat Trail

The Paseo Garganta del Diablo is a one km-long (0.6 mi) trail that brings visitors directly over the falls of Devil’s Throat, the highest and deepest of the falls. The Devil’s Throat canyon is 80–90 m wide and 70–80 m deep. Left of this canyon, another part of the river forms 160-200 individual falls. (Wiki)

Paudimar Cataratas Hotel

We stayed at the Paudimar Cataratas Hotel, well located, great value per money and delicious food. There is lots of space for children to play, swimming pool and soccer fields.

Our flight was direct to Foz do Iguaçu with Gol from Santos Dumont airport in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil).

We felt completely safe in Foz do Iguazu, and for sure it’s a place that we are going to come back.
