Rainbow Over the Falls on Upper Trail

The magnificent waterfalls at Iguazu National Park – a South American site not to be missed! The waterfalls (“cataratas” in Spanish) can be entered via Puerto Iguazú, Argentina or Foz de Iguazu (“Foz do Iguaçu” in Portuguese) in Brazil.

An online travel guide to both towns that includes places to stay & where to eat for all budget levels can be found here: Travel Guide to Iguazu Falls

Want to take a walk along the path on the upper and lower circuits and view the falls up close & personal? Videos of Iguazu Falls.   To view a video of the Museum at the Tourist Information Center (Puerto Iguazú) simply scroll to the bottom of this page. Cheers.
