What does the entrance to the Argentinian side Falls include?

The Cataracts on the Argentine side give us the possibility to enter the jumps, experience them, feel their strength.


Let's say it: the Waterfalls on the Brazilian side have panoramic views so amazing that they thrill. But the  Cataracts  on the Argentine side give us the possibility to go into the jumps, experience them, feel their strength. Today we tell you what includes the entrance to the Park.

The Iguazu Falls, in addition to being a World Heritage Site, are one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World. Almost 80% of them are located on the Argentine side, in a protected area within the Iguazú National Park.

When you visit the Falls, there are some information you need to keep in mind to enter the Park:

  • The entry  time  for the Iguazú National Park is from 8 to 16.30. You can stay inside until 18.
  •  Entrance  to Iguazu National Park is paid by card or cash (Argentine pesos). The parking lot too.
  •  At the time of taking out the entrance, it is necessary to present an ID or passport. 
  •  Please note : You can visit Iguazu National Park two days in a row. On the second day you pay half. For this, on the first day you need to approach the window and ask to be validated for the next day. The next day you will need to show up with that validated entry and your ID.
