IGUAZU

TOURIST ACTIVITIES

Visitors come to Iguazu National Park with the simple aim of knowing its main attraction: the Falls; but they also find they can carry out activities that place them in close contact with nature, such as ecological and photo safaris, biking, boat trips, rafting on the River Iguazu, trekking, as well as enjoying films, or artwork displays by the natives and professional artists of the region.

Green Path
This is an ancient forest path 600 meters long. It enables the visitor to get into the heart of the Misiones vegetation, arriving on foot at the distribution square where the Upper and Lower Circuits begin. Birds and other wild animals can be seen on the way, as well as the abundant vegetation, and all the sounds of the rainforest can be heard. Duration: 20 minutes.

Lower Circuit
This 1,700 meter circular route gives access to eight very attractive lookout points: the San Martín, Bossetti, Alvar Núñez and Two Sisters Falls are some of these. This circuit also leads to the port, where the tourists are invited to visit San Martín Island, and join in a boating adventure, experiencing the challenge of sailing underneath the falls.

With a walkway that passes under the falls to reach the heart of the Waterfalls, the Lower Circuit offers a more intimate experience of the landscape, and close contact with nature. Here the visitor can "feel" the spirit of the rainforest: the dampness, the sounds, the smells, and the penetrating water vapor that takes over all the area. Duration: two hours.

Upper Circuit
This route offers a walk through the upper area of the falls, 650 meters offering a panoramic view of them as a whole. Six large lookout points and rest-stations make the walk a source of energy and relaxation in contact with the water.

On this walk the Two Sisters, Little, Ramírez, Bossetti, Adam and Eve, Bernabé Méndez and Mbiguá Falls can be seen; from each of them the semicircular arc formed by the San Martín, Hidden, Two Musketeers, Rivadavia and Three Musketeers Falls can be admired.Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes.

Devil's Throat
With a single walkway of 2,260 meters (out and return) the visitor can enjoy a unique landscape that he or she will find strikingly impressive: the Devil's Throat, the most famous of the Iguazu Waterfalls.

The route crosses several islands of the Misiones rainforest, and thanks to three large lookout points, the marvelous natural spectacle of the River Iguazu and the abundant vegetation around it can be seen.

The monumental "throat" is the culmination of the route: a fall 150 meters in width and 80 in height which, horseshoe shape, forms a powerful fall of water crashing down onto the river bed and producing dense clouds of vapor that fill the surroundings and give a characteristic touch to the landscape.

A separate spectacle is provided by the swifts, characteristic birds of the area of the Waterfalls, that dive down, parallel to the falls, as if they were trying to get caught up in the water.

These small, dark-plumed birds are a species of swift exclusive to these Waterfalls, and so were chosen by the National Administration of National Parks as the representative symbol of Iguazu National Park. Duration: two hours.

Macuco Trail
This excursion starts on National Route N° 12, that crosses part of the National Reserve of Iguazu Park, reaching the area of the Waterfalls and going on from there towards Picada Macuco. It is a dirt road passing through eight kilometers of virgin rainforest, where flora and fauna can be observed and studied in open vehicles that enable the visitors to take photographs. The trip ends in Puerto Macuco.

On the Lower River Iguazu, a one-hour boat trip can be taken to see the Arrecha Falls, 35 meters tall, and upriver to reach Boquerón, where there is a perfect view of the main Argentine waterfalls. When the river flows copiously, San Martín Island can be reached by boat.

Macuco Path
This is a few meters from the research center. It is a footpath through thick and mysterious forest, three kilometers long, and of varying degrees of difficulty. The walk can be taken privately and takes two hours. At the end of the path is the Arrecha Fall, with a small beach, although bathing is not permitted. The visitor should be careful with the stairway going down to the fall, since it is rather treacherous. There are rest-stations throughout the walk, and at the start there is a map showing the degrees of difficulty of the circuit. Duration: three hours.
Schedule: from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in winter, and from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. in summer.

Puerto Canoas
There are various options from the port to make boat trips along River Iguazu, some of which get very close to the Waterfalls.

Vehicle Path
The bus route starts on National Route Nº 12, which merges with the old National Route Nº 101, and crosses most of Iguazu National Park, in the so-called "untouchable" zone. This trip is surrounded by the great enigma of the rainforest, in which some 700 species of vegetation live in perfect harmony with the fauna of the zone. At the park wardens' post there is a 200-meter diversion to find a 300-meter long trail through virgin rainforest. Some 23 kilometers along this dirt road for vehicles is the zone of naturalpalm-groves.

Lower Foot Path
This goes into the rainforest, reaching the Two Sisters, Alvar Nuñez and Lanusse Falls.

Upper Foot Path
This originally reached the Devil's Throat by bridges, but these were destroyed by the extraordinary surge of the river in 1983. The path currently reaches the Mbiguá Fall, and passes between the Bozetti, Ramírez and Little Falls. The lookout point over the Devil's Throat is reached only by taking the launch service from Puerto Canoas.

Eastern Border of Iguazu National Park
From Puerto Canoas to the Eastern Gate of the Park, along National Route 101, there are 32 kilometers through nothing but rainforest. The visitor has the chance to get in contact with a different environment.

Boating Adventure
This boat trip on the Lower River Iguazu takes the visitor to where the water from the falls runs into the new river bed, and then down into the Waterfall area at full speed.

Boating Safari
Embarking from Puerto Canoas, this is a four-kilometer trip in the upper delta of the River Iguazu. The trip lasts 20 minutes across the placid waters to Tres Marías port.

Photo Safari
This approximately two hour trek through 30 kilometers of abundant rainforest lets you observe animal tracks, hear the singing of hidden birds, and with a little luck, see some of the fauna.

San Martín Island
This trip can be made by boat. The Waterfalls can be enjoyed from their very core, with privileged views of the Devil's Throat, the Window in the Rock and the Balcony of the San Martín Fall. There is also a white sand beach. Duration: two hours.

Three Frontiers Circuit
The Tancredo Neves International Bridge joins Puerto Iguazu with the Brazilian city of Foz do Iguaçu, and then connects with the Paraguayan town of Ciudad del Este through the Friendship Bridge. This route, a round trip of 30 kilometers, enables one to do the famous shopping tours and visit these cities. The Brazilian zone of the Waterfalls is 26 kilometers from Foz de Iguaçu. Interesting panoramic views can be seen from the bridges.

Three Frontiers Stone
The point where the Rivers Iguazu and Paranameet forms a tripartite international border of great natural beauty.
Av. 3 Fronteras, Puerto Iguazu.

Foz de Iguaçu
This is a purely commercial city, an "International Free Port". In its more than 15,000 stores, and some 6,500 street stalls, spread through some 20 city center blocks, the most varied products can be found imported from anywhere in the world. It is only 18 kilometers from Puerto Iguazu.
