I’ve seen all these websites comparing which side of Iguazu is best, the Brazilian or Argentinian. My opinion is that you absolutely have to see both – they’re both different and if you’ve come all the way to this part of the world to see the falls you have to see both sides. But if I HAD to chose then I would choose the Argentinian side. Although the single best overall view is on the Brazilian side, there is so much more to see on the Argentinian side: more waterfalls, more walkways, and more close up views – and the lookout overseeing Garganta del Diablo is pretty spectacular.
We also felt that the Argentinians had put more effort into the park facilities. Everything felt more up to date and better organized. We arrived at the park and were amazed by pretty tour guides, dressed in guide uniforms, who spoke a variety of languages for various tour groups. They had smiles on their faces and were friendly. I’ve mentioned through the last few posts that we hadn’t see many smiley, friendly people on our Brazilian trip. We were quite impressed by Iguazú National Park, as the park on the Argentinian side is called.
