Iguazu Falls in Pictures

Waterfall
Iguazu Falls is nestled between the Northeast corner of Argentina and Southwest Brazil.  People often say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but no photo or Photo Essay (even one from yours truly) can do this magical place justice. These waterfalls must be experienced.

Waterfall Views

National Park Iguazu, Argentina has many walkways that take you into an enhanced journey of beautiful waterfall views.  The Argentina side of the falls is much more tourist friendly, providing incredible views and trails for miles.

Get Wet!

You can get yourself very wet on this famous walkway.  They sell ponchos just before the lookout deck.  If the waterfalls are low, you can get close without getting drenched.  It all depends on the season.

Largest Waterfalls in the World

Iguacu or Iguazu Falls are one of the largest waterfalls in the world.  It all depends on how you measure that.  The waterfall system consists of 275 falls along 2.7 kilometers (1.7 mi) of the Iguazu River. Some of the individual falls are up to 82 meters (269 ft) in height, though the majority are about 64 meters (210 ft).

For those who don’t mind getting soaked or pounded by the force of water rushing down from one of the “weaker” waterfalls, there are boat tours that take you up close and personal to the water action.

The Roar of Devil’s Throat Waterfall

The star of the show is “Devil’s Throat” a U-shaped, 82-meter-high, 150-meter-wide and 700-meter-long waterfall. At National Park Iguazu, Argentina you have back stage VIP access. Get your ears ready to hear The Devil scream.

Depending on the time of year you visit the waterfalls, the water level and volume can change dramatically.  We have visited both the Brazil and Argentina side during different seasons and have seen varying results.

What amazing photos! You really captured the beauty of the falls. It’s amazing that this is entirely natural and not man made.

This is one of my favorite places on earth! I loved your photos. Thanks for bringing back some good memories. =)

Jason says:

It’s an amazing place to witness natures power.

RealBrazil says:

What fantastic photos! I definitely agree with the comments above that the Argentinean side is the most exciting – getting up close to all that water is amazing – but I think the view from the Brazil side is better?

Bali Villas says:

DORIAN ZULETA says:

Awesome photos – especially love the rainbows. CAn’t believe that we’ll be seeing it for ourselves next week!

Jason says:

Next week! Oh that is going to be incredible. I will hope for great weather for you guys!

Perfect photos. Looks like a beautiful place :)

Abby says:

Wow the contrast between the rainbows and the blue, blue sky are incredible. I’m going to Argentina for the first time in two weeks. So excited, despite not being able to get to these Falls!

Jason says:

Well, Argentina has so much to offer, so I am sure it will still be incredible!

Don Faust says:

Jason – fabulous! Ok, I want to go here now. My wife just got back from the other side of Argentia in Mendoza, so next time we visit Argentina, this is a definitely a site worth seeing.

I see you are from Jenkintown, huh? We just move out west from Philly.

Jason says:

Born in Jenkintown, but raised in South Jersey, just outside Philly. Still my favorite city, minus NYC. The falls are the most amazing thing to witness. It’s was a crazy amount of force by nature.

Júnia says:

It’s Foz de Iguaçu or Iguazu Falls!
Shame on me! I never went there and I lived so close!

Marina NC says:

2.7 km of waterfalls!!. I am amazed to see such a great thing. there is no do doubt that it is a must see place in the world. Photography also very nice.

Jason says:

Thanks Marina. It was a lot of waterfalls to see!

Anita says:

Stunning pics. This is still on my must-see list.
Did you prefer the Argentinian or Brazilian side?

Jason says:

The Argentina side blows away the Brazil side.

This place is magic.

I’ve been there a few years ago. I’ve been on the brazil side one day, then on the Argentina side the next day. The walk is really better in Argentina, but you’re more “in the middle” of the falls in Brazil (plus you can visit the “Birds Zoo” (it’s amazing).

Jason says:

We completely agree, the Argentina side is incredible. On the Brazil side we did enjoy a bike ride through the jungle, a ropes course and a train ride through the jungle. So there are definitely more activities on the Brazil side, but the views of the falls are best on the Argentina side.

Hynz says:

WOW!! awesome photos.. definitely love the rainbow over the falls!! What a paradise! :)

Jason says:

It is a paradise. As long as the sun is out, you are guaranteed to have some rainbows.

bethany says:

Wow – Beautiful! i can’t wait to visit this spot someday – it looks gorgeous!

great shots — submitted them on reddit for you in the pics category — hope you get some hits from it

Jason says:

Thanks Michael.

This was my 1st solo trip! Iguazu totally took my breath away. Gorgeous shots!!!

Jason says:

Thanks Andi. We have been twice and it never gets old.

Great post! I’ve only made as far south as Peru in South America, and Iguazu is high on my list of places to visit next. Thanks for the reminder of why I want to go there. Hope life is great out on the road!

Jason says:

Hey Greg, it is an amazing powerful display of nature. We get goosebumps walking up to Devil’s Throat. The Argentina side of the falls is much better, but its also about the weather. A good sunny day makes it that much better.

Julia says:

Awesome photos! Actually can’t wait to go here

Beautiful photographs. We too were amazed by the falls, and agree with you that no picture can do it justice in comparison with seeing it in person.

Jason says:

These photos were taken during two different trips and probably with several different cameras. We carry a Panasonic point and shoot and a Canon SLR.
