Iguazu Falls Brazil Travel Guide


Iguazu Falls is a network of over 275 different waterfalls spread out along a dramatic 2 miles stretch of cliff at the borders of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. The main town on the Brazilian side is Foz do Iguaçu where there is a domestic airport for Brazil, whilst on the Argentine side the main town is Puerto Iguazu where there is a domestic airport serving other destinations in Argentina. Most of the falls are located in Argentina, but both sides offer different perspectives. Other than the falls there is the Itaipu Dam, the largest hydroelectric dam in the world, a bird park and many jungle trails.

Iguazu falls was even more stunning than it seems in the photos, a real highlight for us. We are so glad we stayed at the Das Cataratas, it is a fantastic hotel.

Best months to visit Iguazu Falls

Iguazu Falls can be visited year round but it is hottest, most humid and wettest between December and February, however, these months are considered the high season as the falls are at their most impressive. March, April, September and October are good months to go for less crowds and slightly cooler weather. May until August the falls are at their lowest level, but skies are usually blue.
