Quick Travel Guide to Iguazu
The majesty of Iguazu Falls is difficult to put into words, but one historical anecdote gives a good idea of the site’s striking first impression. On her approach to Iguazu Falls, First Lady of the United States Eleanor Roosevelt was said to have exclaimed, “Poor Niagara!”
Indeed, the Iguazu Falls tower above those in Niagara, and span more than twice their width. But what makes them even more intriguing is that they also span two countries, and your perspective of the falls is dramatically different whether you’re on the Argentinean side or the Brazilian side. In the picturesque Argentinean village of Puerto Iguazu, you’re just a short drive from the greatest concentration of waterfalls, where you can get a view of the falls so close you can feel the spray. Across the border, in Foz do Iguazu, Brazil, the more expansive, panoramic views of Iguazu Falls are unforgettable, and you can join tour boat excursions for thrilling up-close views.
A trip to see this natural world wonder is worthwhile even if you only have one day to enjoy it, but to best appreciate the area’s grandeur, plan for an overnight stay in one of the fine hotels in Iguazu Falls. In Argentina, Brazil and nearby Paraguay, a full range of hotels compete vigorously for the business of the thousands of visitors who arrive each year.
