Yes, it can be done on the Argentinean side and also on the Brazilian side.
80% of the waterfalls are in Argentine territory, which means that the park is bigger, there are more waterfalls and more trails. It takes all day to enjoy it. The Brazilian side is the perfect complement since the panoramic view from this side completes the experience perfectly. The Brazilian side is smaller and can be visited in half a day.
The price is USD 26. You can pay at the ticket offices at the entrance of the park in cash (in Argentine pesos) or with a credit or debit card. You can also buy them online.
That is not necessary, you can buy it before you enter.
The Park is open every day of the year from 8:00 am. You can enter until 4:30 pm and stay inside the park until 6:00 pm.
Yes, it is best to take the first flight in the morning and the last one in the afternoon and have a guide waiting for you at the airport to go straight to the park. It’s recommended to travel without luggage to go directly to the park and enjoy nature as much as possible.
Iguazu means big water in Guarani, which is a fitting name for the deafening roar this beast of a natural waterfall showcases. In fact, it is something very akin to ‘magic’—and it should be because the Falls are one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Iguazu Falls are shared by three countries: Paraguay, Brazil, and Argentina. Both Brazil and Argentina have National Parks devoted to them, and they are sufficiently different in character to each merit a visit. Iguazu Falls feature 275 waterfalls up to 80 meters high, and one of the most spectacular and colossal is the Devil Throat, a massive drop of turbulent water as you’ve never seen before.
Puerto Iguazú is the closest city to the Iguazú National Park on the Argentinian side, and travelers visit the city all year round since it’s on this side that 80% of the falls are located. First inhabited by the Guaraníes and then colonized by the Spanish Jesuits, Iguazú still displays many of the traditions of both Argentine and European culture.
Iguazú is a highly popular destination in Argentina and it is easily combined with other regions like Patagonia. From Iguazú, you can fly to Buenos Aires, Patagonia, Salta and Jujuy (in the North) and also Río de Janeiro in Brazil.
Cosmopolitan, dynamic & generous, this city is brimming with places and tourist attractions you wouldn’t want to miss out on. Buenos Aires sits on the coast of Río de la Plata, the widest in the world. If you cross this immense river it will take you 1 hour to reach the other coast in Uruguay! This city is the jumping point for almost any trip to Argentina since the international airport (best known for “Ezeiza”) and a domestic airport (called “Aeroparque”) concentrate the affluent of most of the flights in the country. We recommend staying at least 5 days to wander the streets, the many cafés and taste the delicious meat for which Argentina is famous worldwide.
This is one of our country’s most impressive landscapes that you will remember the most. The village of El Calafate serves as the gateway to Los Glaciares National Park. Huge blue icebergs floating in milky turquoise waters, cracking noises of massive ice pieces falling into the lake, and the massive Perito Moreno Glacier (UNESCO World Heritage Site) will take your breath away.
This is a small city, really easy to get around on foot, and it has beautiful views of Argentino Lake. The nearest airport counts with a good flight frequency, this is the easiest way to reach El Calafate. The city and its glaciers (around 47 in the park) were discovered at the end of the XIX century. Today, El Calafate offers boat trips in Argentino Lake, day tours to Patagonia ranches to learn about the rural culture, visits to El Chaltén and Mount Fitz Roy to enjoy amazing views and adventure hikes and other activities.
With colonial plazas, red hills, and green oases, the Argentine Northwest is a region of contrasts. The traditions and folklore of this area, which was once part of the Inca Kingdom, are still alive with indigenous culture. The main provinces known as “the North” are Salta and Jujuy. Salta is the capital city in the province of the same name and was founded in 1582. Called “La Linda” by Argentines, which in Spanish means pretty, Salta is a good place to start exploring Northern Argentina. Travelers depart from this city to the breathtaking Calchaquíes Valley and the city of Cafayate, the birthplace of Torrontés wine. Heading north from Salta, you’ll reach Jujuy, known for the Humahuca Gorge (UNESCO World Heritage site) as well as the Great Salt Flats, a white paradise that everyone should visit at least once in their lives!
Known as the “Marvelous City”, Río de Janeiro was founded by a Portuguese sailor in 1502 and nowadays is one of the most visited cities in Brazil. “Janeiro” means January in Portuguese and the first month of Summer in the South Hemisphere. And something that this city always offers is sunshine days and a continuous feeling of vacations floating in the air. Río has the second-largest economy in the country after São Paulo, and today is still the financial center of Brazil. Countless visitors come to Rio de Janeiro to relax on its beautiful beaches, dance the night away to the beat of Samba (the national dance) and learn about Brazilian culture. Among this city’s highlights, you’ll find Guanabara Bay, Sugarloaf Mountain, Corcovado Mountain, and Copacabana Beach, a perfect visit to combine with tours of Iguazú Falls.

I would just like to say a big thank you for your help; we had a wonderful time and came back feeling that we had a very good picture of your amazing country : the variety, the sheer vastness and the (mostly) happy attitude of the people towards life; I would also like to comment on the excellence of all the guides we had - Tina in BA, Chris (I think) in Tierra del Fuego, Celia in P Iguazú and Eduardo in Salta who drove us many hundreds of kilometres with great skill and patience. They were all very knowledgeable and good humoured and obviously enjoy their job. All the transfers were punctual and stress free and I thank you again for making our holiday such a pleasure.
We just returned from ARGENTINA and had a very good experience with SAY HUEQUE They organized tours for us, hotels and flights to Ushuaia El Calafate and Iguazu. Everything was perfect
We had a 14 day private tour organized by Say Hueque, visiting Salta, Calafate, Train to the Clouds, Salinas Grande, Purmamarca, IguazuFalls (both countries), Estancia Ombu and BA sites and Tango. All the transits, tours, guides, drivers and accommodations were excellent. We had to use the emergency number once and that to was well handled in off hours by customer service. The scenery, the cities /towns, the wine and the people were beyond our expectations. We recommend Say Hueque!
Say Hueque did a wonderful job. They individualized our visit to Buenos Aires and Iguazú Falls. Sandra was an exceptional guide in Buenos Aires. She brought the history of this beautiful city alive for us. We felt very well taken care of!
Everything was well organized and went according to plan. There was a workers strike going on when we arrived at the airport which concerned us about being able to connect with our guide bit had our problems. They had it all worked out. Our agent was extremely helpful and responsive. Had a wonderful time. Iguazú Falls is a must see with Say Hueque.
