Day 05: Visit to the Falls on the Argentine side.

Early in the morning (around 06.50AM) we will start our way to Iguazu National Park.

Once breakfast is finished, we will hike 4 kilometers to the Devil’s Throat, being one of the first to reach the main viewpoint.

After having contemplated this wonderful show, we will continue our journey through the other trails that the park offers.
The upper part of the trail offers – in its 650 m length – aerial views. It usually takes 1, 30 hours with stopovers along the way; there are six large gazebos and seating areas.

The other path, called inferior, allows an approach to the falls. The trail – 1700 m – has 8 panoramic points of great beauty! This circular trail takes between 1.30 to 2 hours and offers views of some falls on the Brazilian side.
After this incredible experience we will return to the hotel.

After breakfast we will meet the guide in the hotel lobby to make the half-day visit to the Falls on the Brazilian side.From the main entrance of the Iguaçu National Park a bus will take us to the path to have the perhaps more panoramic view of the area.

At the end of the catwalks on the Brazilian side, you reach the spectacular Devil’s Throat, where fourteen jumps fall to more than 100 meters with such force that there is always a cloud of steam surrounding these jumps and creating a multicolored rainbow.

We will tour the Parque Nacional de Iguaçu park towards the base of Salto Floriano and then we will take the elevator to the top of the falls, or we will walk along the falls at Salto Unión.
After this visit we return to the hotel and we will have the rest of the day free.
