Iguazu Falls is one of those amazing places in that world that everyone should have on their "must see" travel plans.

Since we were already in Argentina, we first visited the Parque Nacional Iguazu located in the country's Misiones province. The 500+ images on this page and the other 8 pages are all from just the Iguazu Falls National Park belonging to Argentina.

To get there, we took a short domestic flight from Aeroparque Jorge Newbery in Buenos Aires to Puerto Iguazú city. Our lodging for the next few days was the Hotel Saint George.

The Iguazu Falls tour that we signed up for took us to the Parque Nacional Iguazu in Argentina first, and then over the border to the Parque Nacional Do Iguaçu in Brazil the next day.

On our last day, we hired a taxi to take us back into "Brasil" to see "Foz Do Iguassu" from the air with Helisul Helicopter Tours.

Walkway After Entrance
In the morning, the tour company picked us up in their small bus. The Parque Nacional Iguazu was a short 15-20 minute bus ride from our hotel in the city of Puerto Iguazu. The entrance fee of 30 Argentine pesos, or about $10 dollars US, was included in the price of our tour package. If you'd like to stay closer to the falls, there is a Sheraton Hotel located near the entrance of the park.

Map of Iguazu Falls
It can take up to eight hours to see all that the Parque Nacional Iguazu has to offer and experience, so be sure to get plenty of sleep the night before. If you ditch your tour guide and group, you may be able to see the park more quickly by walking faster and spending less time at each look out point. I'd also recommend bringing a water resistant camera or a waterproof snorkeling/diving case for your digital camera. As you get closer to the falls, the air becomes saturated with water droplets and you'll become surrounded by a fine mist. Then when you approach the roaring Devil's Throat (Garganta del Diablo), you'll be soaked by sprays from the rushing waterfalls. Without my Canon underwater case, I wouldn't have been able to take pictures so close to the falls without damaging the camera.

One of my favorite parts about visiting the Parque Nacional Iguazu was going on the "Grand Adventure Tour" which included a boat ride under the falls at the Garganta de Diablo (Devil's Throat) and a 4x4 truck ride through the jungle. The cost was about $30 US per person for the 15 minute boat ride and 10 minute 4x4 ride. Check out this Grand Adventure Tour Video Clip.
