Parque Nacional del Iguazų Things to Do: 214 reviews and 406 photos


When entering from the Visitor's Center, a short mini-train ride will drop you off in the rain-forest at the Cataracts Station. From there, you can take either nearby walking trails to really start exploring the 275 individual cataracts that make up Iguazu Falls or you can continue by train to the far end of the park. The first section you will encounter near the Cataracts Station are the Upper and Lower Circuits, which provide two different viewpoints of the same series of waterfalls (accessible by catwalks). The next major section, not nearly as well explored by tourists, is the area around San Martin Island, which can only be reached by boat. The final section, which we actually did first, requires a train-ride to the far end of the park where you can take the catwalk out to the Devil's Throat.
