The gateway to Iguazu Falls

Travelers who come to Puerto Iguazu tend to have just one thing on their itinerary: Iguazu Falls. But those who dig a little deeper will find jungle trails leading to hidden swimming holes, mines laden with amethyst geodes, and the rich culture of the Guarani people.

Top 10 attractions in Puerto Iguazu

#1
Iguazu Falls

Iguazu Falls

star-5987
Iguazu Falls, the largest waterfalls system in the world, are truly awe-inspiring to behold, spanning the border between Brazil and Argentina. Though Brazil boasts better views of the falls, Argentina is blessed with about 80 percent of this natural marvel’s 275 separate cascades. Paved trails and catwalks wind their way around the falls—sometimes reaching within an arm’s length of the water—and a free train connects the main trailheads.More

Iguaçu Falls (Cataratas do Iguaçu)

Iguaçu Falls (Cataratas do Iguaçu)

star-4.51,252
Iguaçu Falls (Cataratas do Iguaçu), the largest waterfalls system in the world, are truly awe-inspiring to behold. Though Argentina boasts better trails around the falls, Brazil is blessed with the best views of this natural marvel’s 275 separate cascades, which span the border between the two countries. Take in full-frontal views of Devil’s Throat (Garganta del Diablo), San Martin Island, and more from the short-but-sweet catwalks that wind their way around the Brazilian side of Iguaçu Falls.More

Devil's Throat (Garganta del Diablo)

Devil's Throat (Garganta del Diablo)

star-5494
With 14 cascades tumbling over 260 feet (80 meters) into a cloudy mist as they hit the frothing water below, Devil’s Throat (Garganta del Diablo) is easily the star of Iguazu Falls. The tallest of Iguazu’s 275 waterfalls, Devil’s Throat is evenly split across the border of Argentina and Brazil, making it easy to visit no matter your starting point.More

Wanda Mines (Minas de Wanda)

Wanda Mines (Minas de Wanda)

star-428
The Wanda Mines(Minas de Wanda), located less than 40 miles (60 kilometers) from Puerto Iguazu in the rain forest along the Paraná River, are home to some of the best agate, amethyst, quartz, and topaz found in Argentina. The small-scale mines don’t use heavy explosives and are an excellent place to learn more about the geological processes that form gemstones.More

Devil’s Throat Falls (Garganta do Diabo)

Devil’s Throat Falls (Garganta do Diabo)

star-442
The dramatic centerpiece of Iguazu Falls is the Devil’s Throat (Garganta do Diabo), the tallest and mightiest of Iguazu’s 275 waterfalls. Made up of 14 cascades, thundering from heights of over 260 feet (80 meters) and stretching across the border of Brazil and Argentina, no trip to Iguazu is complete without a photo by the Devil’s Throat.More

San Ignacio Miní

San Ignacio Miní

star-3.521
San Ignacio Miní, one of five Jesuit missions that comprise the Jesuit Missions of the Guaranis UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the most complete and impressive ruins site in Argentina.

Three Borders Landmark (Marco das Tres Fronteiras)

Three Borders Landmark (Marco das Tres Fronteiras)

star-425
Iguassu Falls are famously shared between three nations: Brazil, Argentina and tiny Paraguay (which doesn't actually claim any part of the primary falls, only the rivers). Though the actual Tripitarte, or triple border, lies unmarked at the deepest part of the confluence of the Iguazu and Parana rivers, all three nations have erected monuments—built around obelisks painted patriotically with the colors of their respective flags—overlooking the spot.Originally erected in 1903, the memorials are built around three simple cement obelisks, painted in the patriotic colors of the three respective flags. The view is nice, and all three monuments are surrounded with vendors selling snacks and souvenirs. The Argentine landmark has the distinction of being the easiest to visit, a pleasant walk from the city center along the riverfront.Brazil's Marco das Tres Fronteiras(Three Borders Landmark) was originally erected on July 20, 1903, overlooking the pretty scene and international bridges. Though it sits on the outskirts of Foz de Iguacu city, it does bring in tourists, as well as vendors selling souvenirs and snacks. Next door, the Space of the Americas tourist complex offers meals and views in more relaxed environs.More

What do you do when you’re in rural Argentina? Feast on churrasco and enjoy a lively dance show, of course.

This smallish ecological theme park just outside Puerto Iguazú offers insight into the history, traditions, and natural environment of the indigenous Guarani people, many of whom still speak their native tongue while living in equilibrium with nature.
