GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Puerto Iguazú is a border city in the province of Misiones, Argentina. The world-renowned Iguazú Falls are only 18 kilometres (11 mi) away from the city, and as a result the city has developed much of its infrastructure around tourism.

FABIO'S REVIEW

Yellow-Living
Green-Visiting
Green-Triangular-new

One of my top three destinations in Argentina (along with the Glacier Moreno and the Epecuen ghost town). These spectacular falls are world renowned, and I recommend you visit both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides. Also, the city of Puerto Iguazu is quite cozy, and I suggest you book a hotel room there: I made the mistake of staying in Paraguay’s Ciudad del Este (which is a dump) because I didn’t want to carry my luggage around, pass through customs etc.

THE IGUAZU FALLS

The Iguazu Falls are arranged in a way that resembles a reversed letter "J". The border between Brazil and Argentina runs through the Devil's Throat. On the right bank is the Brazilian territory, which has just over 20% of the jumps of these falls, and the left side jumps are Argentine, which make up almost 80% of the falls.
