EcoAdventures' Iguazu Falls, Argentina

The park was created in 1934 and it contains one of the greatest natural natural wonders of Argentina, surrounded by the subtropical jungle. And together with its counterpart across the Iguazu River, Iguazu Falls Tour Mapthe Brazilian Iguaçu National Park, forms one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. Both sides of the falls were declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO, in 1984 and 1986.

The tours of the falls from Argentina and Brazil are actually complementary to each other. The majority of the falls are in Argentina, so from the Argentine side you get a close-up experience of the falls. But as the saying goes, "Most of the falls may be in Argentina, but Brazil sells the tickets to view the falls." The tour on the Brazilian side gives visitors a panorama of the entire 2 1/2–mile system of falls that you cannot get on the Argentine side, culminating with a spectacular bottom-up view of the Devil’s Throat.

On the Argentine side, the National Park features a cogwheel train that takes visitors to and from the many different trailheads for light to moderate walking:
• The Upper Circuit is a half-hour walk along a 3,900 ft. trail, with low degree of difficulty and no stairs, that goes deep into the jungle. All of a sudden, you run into breathtaking views of the falls.
• The Lower Circuit requires more physical effort due to its stairs. The walkway also goes deep into the jungle, crossing streams and coming across local fauna. On the way down there are balconies with marvelous bottom-up views of the falls (the same falls that you see from above in the Upper Circuit).
• Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat) is a 230-foot plunge where several branches of the Iguazu River converge, causing a violent waterfall. A balcony set up at the border gives a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
• If you want to enhance your Iguazu Falls experience, or you are not going to the Brazilian side of the falls, try the Great Adventure which takes you by boat to the base of the Devil’s Throat, right below the 230-foot waterfall!
