* If you're in Puerto Iguazu you are probably there to see the falls. The falls are considered one of the 7 wonders of the world and at some points the falls are 80 M tall.
* Inside the park make sure to check out La Garganta del Diablo (The DevilŽs Throat). This is one of the most impressive views of the falls with massive amounts of water thundering over the cliff.
* Take the boat to San Martin Island. Here you can see the falls, and also it is the only place in the park where you can swim as well. Make sure to go early because the last boat back is at 3.
* If you're there during the full moon check out the Paseo de la Luna Llena. This excursion includes dinner in the parkŽs restaurant 'La Selva', a ride on the jungle train, and a trek out to La Garganta del Diablo, all under the moonlight. Perfect for couples.
* Tired of nature? Check out the casino which attracts gamblers from Argentina and Brazil.
When to go
Iguazu has a warm, humid, subtropical climate with no dry season. The summer is very hot and humid and the winter is warm around noon but cool or cold in the late afternoon and night. The best time to go is during the spring and autumn when you still get the warmth but it cools off a bit at night.
How to get there
Puerto Iguazu is very well connected to the rest of the country and prices aren't bad. The only drawback is that if you're coming from Buenos Aires it's a trek (18 hrs), however you can always take a night bus. If you're looking to make your way to Brazil, cross the border and from there (Foz do Iguaçu) you can catch buses to Brazilian destinations.
Puerto Iguazu also has an airport which is served by Aerlineas Argentina and LAN with numerous daily flights to Buenos Aires.
Travelers from most countries including the US, UK, Australia, EU citizens, New Zealand, Canada, and Israel do not require a visa to enter Argentina. A 90 day tourist visa will be issued at the airport with a passport. Tourist visas can be renewed for those wishing to stay in Argentina with a quick trip to Chile from Mendoza or Uruguay from Buenos Aires. No tourist visa is required of visitors from Israel for stays up to 90 days.
At restaurants it is normal to tip 10%. Taxi drivers do not receive tips but the fare may be rounded up to the nearest peso. Porters can receive a tip of a couple of pesos.
