We’re glad we took a second day to see more of the Iguacu Falls – the Argentine side offers different perspectives and experiences.
We did all three designated trails. The star moment is definitely looking down into the Devil’s Throat from its rim, but we also simply enjoyed walking amongst the trees, crossing rivers on boardwalks, discovering smaller waterfalls, glimpsing views through the jungle, and having a cooling shower under one of the falls. We also saw more wildlife here – monkeys and caimans.
In our opinion, if you have just half a day to see the Falls then go the Brazil side. You get the big views quicker and the Brazilians have invested in a better visitor experience. On the Argentinian side you need a full day and lots of energy for long walks – whilst you miss out on the overview panorama.
