Central Station: Ecological Train The adventure begins! Once we are inside the park, we'll get on the famous Ecological Train. This train travels at a speed of less than 20 km/h to avoid interfering with the fauna. It's propelled by liquid gas, which is non-polluting. A very nice half-hour ride through the middle of the jungle awaits you. This is the only way to get to the Garganta del Diablo footbridge: and that's where we're going!

Garganta del Diablo (Devil's Throat) When you get off the train, you will take a quiet walk along the footbridge to reach the Garganta del Diablo balcony, the most famous of all Iguazú falls. Iguazú comes from the native Guaraní language and means big waters. When you get to Garganta del Diablo, you'll understand the reason behind this name. Huge amounts of water fall every second, and generate a spectacular roar when they reach the river 80 meters later.

Superior Circuit It's time to get back on the train. This time, the destination is Cataratas station. There you will begin the walk to the Upper Circuit, where you will see the falls from above. You will visit the Argentinean falls Dos Hermanas, Ramirez, Bosetti, Adán y Eva, Bernabé Mendez and San Martín, among many others. On the upper circuit, the footbridges are literally over the river.

You will have several options for your meal. You can choose between El Fortín (all you can eat with barbecue grill), Jaguar House (menu restaurant) and a fast food place.

Gathering at the meeting point When you finish eating, you'll go to the meeting point. The next place to go is the Lower Circuit, where you can see the falls from below. This circuit is 1,400 meters long, with many places with shadows and also stairs. If seeing the falls from above was impressive, wait until you see them from below. You'll be amazed by how many waterfalls you can see at the same time. You'll see jumps of up to 195 meters: almost twice as high as the Statue of Liberty!

Great Adventure Navigation Besides going through the lower circuit of the falls, you will literally get inside of them. It's a real thrill. First you will go into the jungle in an ecological safari car. On your way there, you will learn about the flora and fauna of the park. You will encounter many animals, but without a doubt the coatis will steal your heart. Don't let them steal your bag!

Excellent in everything, we did Argentine waterfalls and the next day Brazilian waterfalls, we also asked for the transfer to and from the airport and they helped us manage it. Raul was an excellent guide on the tour, and I highly recommended it.

Todo el personal fue puntual y muy agradable. Nuestro traductor de para el día en las cataratas para los que hablaban inglés, Jorge, fue maravilloso. Muy agradable. Adriana, la guía del parque, también fue muy agradable y conocedora. Pudimos ver las cataratas y también hacer el viaje en barco a las cataratas aunque nuestro vuelo desde Buenos Aires llegó con algo de retraso.
