Main attractions of Puerto Iguazú

The city of Puerto Iguazu is located in the north of the province of Misiones in the northeast corner of Argentina and 18 km from the famous Iguazu Falls. It borders Brazil (Foz do Iguaçu) and Paraguay (Ciudad del Este).

Although the Iguazu Falls area has a subtropical climate, in winter there are days that are cold (when the south wind blows). For this reason, if you travel in winter it is always a good idea to bring a coat.

During the summer there are usually extremely hot days, so we recommend drinking plenty of fluids to avoid heat stroke, dehydration, sunstroke, etc.

Excursions and visits to the National Park IguazúThe most popular options for visitors are to visit the 275 waterfalls of the Falls and learn about the exotic flora and fauna of the place.

In the city you can visit the Mbororé and Natural Science museums, as well as the Three Borders Landmark and the International Casino. From Puerto Iguazú excursions can be organized to Ciudad del Este (Paraguay). There you will find an important fair that sells interesting handicrafts and electronic products. There are also other trips to Brazil to see the waterfalls from a new perspective.
