We hereby provide some useful information to be taken into account before starting your trip to our region:
Do Not Forget!
If you are visiting Iguazu and you are willing to visit our neighboring countries (Brazil and/or Paraguay), do not forget to bring:
- Personal IDs and/or updated passports. If you are travelling with children and any parent is absent, you shall need the Birth Certificate and a certified travel authorization. Many Argentine travel agencies provide accommodation at Foz do Iguazu (Brazil), therefore, it is mandatory to have all necessary documents to cross the border.
- Car Insurance policy, with coverage in all the Mercosur countries.
- Vehicle documents, crediting ownership or driving authorization.
- Updated Vehicle Technical Verification
- Insect repellent, sun screens or sun protection and comfortable shoes
- Hats are a must on sunny days!
- In winter-time (July-August) temperatures may be very varied, so do not forget your coat or your bathing suit
It is also IMPORTANT to know:
High seasons are Easter’s Holy Week and Winter Holidays (July-August). January and February also have an important amount of visitors. In these periods, it is advisable to book accommodation in advance.
April and May –though low season- offer very friendly weather conditions. If you prefer a quiet trip and a major contact with nature, then you should schedule your visit for these months. Tourists also increase at the end of winter and beginning of spring. Please bear in mind that one day is not enough to visit the entire park.
The city of Puerto Iguazu is 17 km far from the National Park (see map). At the bus station -in downtown- you may take buses to visit the Waterfalls, either in the Argentine or the Brazilian side.
The airport is a bit further -20 km- and there is no public transportation to the city or the waterfalls. This service is provided by taxis, private cars or travel agencies.
For our trips, do not forget:
The excursions take place within a national park with special behavior standards to protect the flora and fauna as well as paths with different difficulty levels (see Eco-acciones).
If you take the Nautical Adventure or Great Adventure trips, you shall get close to the falls and become wet. Therefore, it is a good idea to bring raincoats. In cold days, we recommend to bring extra clothing to change the wet one. These excursions are not suitable for children under 12 years old, pregnant women, people with osteoporosis, neck, back conditions or surgery, people with heart conditions or surgery, people with COPD or neurological conditions or surgery, or people unable to handle a nautical emergency on the Iguazú River rapids.
