The tourist region called Iguazú comprises the entire area of the National Park bearing the same name. This park also includes the famous Falls, the main tourist attraction in the Province of Misiones.
Immersed in the lush rainforest of Misiones with the constant presence of the Iguazú River on its northern border, the area is characterized by its wildlife diversity which displays unique specimens. Its warm subtropical climate makes it suitable to welcome visitors year round.
The access to the region is the City of Puerto Iguazú. Offering all necessary services, it lies on the triple border, where the Argentinian, the Brazilian and the Paraguayan frontiers meet. There are roads connecting this area with those countries and the rest of Argentina, as well as an international airport.
One of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World, Iguazu Falls is undoubtedly the most visited place in Misiones and one of the most imposing natural attractions in the Earth. The best thing to do in Puerto Iguazú, visit the Falls!
A unique tour to do in the Iguazú Falls: on nights with a full moon, visitors to the Iguazú Falls may take a ride along the footbridge of Garganta del Diablo and observe a dazzling spectacle: a clear rainbow formed by the moonlight.
It is impossible to avoid visiting this place while staying at Puerto Iguazú. The birds’ house is one of the best options created by man to get close to nature.
We visited La Aripuca theme park and we learned about taking care of the environment and the richness of the Misiones rainforest.
In the last few years, the City of Puerto Iguazú has built up top gastronomic options which have succeeded in combining the flavors of regional cuisine with signature cuisine. Delicious dishes made in Iguazú.
