Water, Water Everywhere – A Walk Through the Argentine Iguazu Falls National Park

It doesn’t get closer to the Iguazu Falls than actually being below them. When I got off the boat that gave me that up close and personal experience, I was soaking wet and happy. Taking a moment to look at the falls once my feet touched the ground again was the last time I got a panoramic look at them.

The rest is left for photos and my memories, which I still carry with me now.

The reason? Simple. While the Brazilian side of the falls gives you a panoramic look time and again, the Argentine side’s expertise is giving you a closer look at some of the falls. Choose the upper circuit or the lower circuit and you still won’t see it all.

The falls created a beautiful rainbow

In fact, I spent a day and a half in the Argentine side alone and only got to experience most areas.

Of course, that probably has to do with the amount of photos I like to take and with the amount of time I spent talking to a group of travelers from elsewhere in northeastern Argentina, that I met at the park. We took each other’s photos – with raccoons  no less, and with one another – and consoled a member of their group whose food was stolen shamelessly by a very cute raccoon.

I don't care about this cell phone, I just want the food these humans hid behind their mate drink....

Yet, soon, it was back to the falls.

The park has many bridges and it’s pretty easy to walk around, yet it does have stairs. I don’t remember how much it’s accessible to wheelchairs, but it’s possible some of it is.

If you come in summer, you’ll apparently see many butterflies, but if you come in late winter, as I did, expect only a few.

Keep your eyes open for them as you focus on the falls.

There is such a great abundance of water there.

And there’s water….

…. everywhere.


Have you ever been to a place so abundant with water?



  1. The waterfall is quite something. Looks absolutely amazing. The bridge looks scary, I don’t think I will be able to look down when I am standing on it. Lovely set of photos you have here.

    • The raccoons were adorable! Imagine seeing many falls like this one together. I’ve seen falls before, yet never so big.
