Iguazu Falls is similar to one of the other great waterfalls in the world due to its location on the border between two countries.
Where Niagara Falls sits between the United States and Canada, Iguazu sits between Argentina and Brazil. Like the former, the latter provides different experiences for travelers visiting from either country. Which side should you visit from?
Speaking first and foremost from personal experience, I can safely recommend visiting the falls from Argentina if you are more of an adventurous hiker. The Argentinian national park providing access to the falls consists of many trails to explore. There are a number of restaurants and places to rest as well, so this is the perfect place to visit if you are making a full day of the park.
Choosing which country to visit from requires some specific knowledge as well. If you are considering visiting the falls from Brazil, know American tourists traveling to Brazil must have a tourist visa before arriving. For Argentina, a passport is enough to gain entry to the country.
In Brazil, the falls are presented to tourists from an overlook. By all accounts, the view is spectacular, but it lacks the integration tourists feel when visiting from the Argentina side.
The falls’ official website recommends visiting the parks in the spring because of the low water flow in the winter and the hot temperatures of the summer months.
