THE UNMISSABLE, NATURAL WONDER OF THE IGUAZU FALLS

Surrounded by the Iguazu National Park, with 55 thousand hectares of Parana jungle, they represent an area with the greatest biodiversity in Argentina. The visit to this marvelous and unforgettable place is done through a series of walkways, which allow you to go through the arms of the Iguazu River and the jungle. There are three main circuits: the Lower Circuit, the Upper Circuit, and the Trail to the Devil´s Throat, which can be traveled on foot or through an ecological train that leads to the beginning of the trails and walkways.
MORE TOURISM OPTIONS
In addition to the National Park and the Falls, the area presents different adventure and discovery options for tourists. A key point is the Hito de las Tres Fronteras, with its nearby craft fair.
