Overview

The Iguazu National Park was created in 1934, with approximately 67,620 hectares/167,091 acres was declared "Natural Heritage to the Humanity" by the UNESCO in 1984 due to its scenic beauties and to the great biological diversity of the subtropical forest. This natural sanctuary, was declareted new 7 wonder of the world in 11/11/11. The Iguazu Falls are located in the Argentina's northeaster corner, bestowed with benevolent rains and temperatures (15ºC/59°F average in Winter and 30ºC/ 86°F average in Summer) brings about a very humid atmosphere almost windless due to the leafy vegetation canopy. The Iguazu river has a total extension of 1320 km/ 820 miles until flowing into the Parana River, 23 km/ 14 miles after the waterfalls. Inside the National Park, the river widens to about 1500 meters/ 0.9 miles and turns south, next it turns north, in the shape of a wide "U" where the river mouth presents the abrupt slump of soil which conforms the cataratas: a magnificent waterfall. All along the above mentioned prominent curve, a proliferation of reefs, islets and prolonged islands provoke the fragmentation of the river in numerous branches. When the river reaches the cliff, each branch becomes a waterfall and together comprise the great Iguazu Waterfalls. The Iguazu Falls appear grandiose and majestic in the Misiones forest dazzling visitors from all over the world. In celebration of all this beauty and unique attraction as from July 2001, a new concept of ecological tourism has been implemented within the Iguazu National Park, with an investment of 25 million dollars and service and facilities according to the international tourist demands, prioritizing at the same time the Park's care and preservation, a sample of the Paranaense Subtropical Forest declared Natural Heritage to the Humanity" by the UNESCO in 1984. The fundamental objectives of this enterprise are the recover and conservation of the Waterfall Area, and the incentive to the present and future generations to renew the legendary admiration arisen by this wonderful masterpiece of nature. Today, our visitors can enjoy safe and modern walkways from start to finish of the impressive falls and the Upper and Lower Circuits and the Devil's Throat, and facilities according to the natural environment such as the new Visitor Center and the alternative transportation of the Ecological Forest Train, which complies with international policies of accessibility and preservation of the World Union for Nature Conservation.

My reaction to witnessing the falls at Iguazu was on a par with the first time I saw Grand Canyon - completely lost for words. Wow does not do justice to either. Iguazu Falls is simply one of the most stupendous places on the planet!...More

Hello, The best way is to fly there, you can use Andes Lineas Aereas, Aerolineas Argentinas or LATAM Airlines. I would fly LATAM Airlines. There are no train to Iguazu from BA, Hope this helps, Gilles
