Iguazu or Iguacu Falls is one of the natural wonders of the world. It is located between Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay, and consists of over 270 water falls. There are five hiking trails that one can do while on the Argentinean side. You can easily do the trekking over the course of 2 days or one full day, and stay in Sheraton Iguazu Resort & Spa the only hotel located in the national park, which is a short 20 minute ride form the airport. Upon entrance to the park, you will have to pay a small fee and do not forget to pick up a free map of the trails. Here are photos from all five trails, depending on what you like, you can pick your favourite!
Passeio Superior – Probably has the best views and the most easy walk of just 650 meters.
Garganta Do Diabo- Is the main attraction where you can see the falls fall and is accessible by Train and another 1km hike over the beautiful water.

Circuita Inferior- Has amazing views of the falls as a whole. But do not forget to bring water especially if you are doing this trip in the summer.

Ilha San Martin– Perhaps the most physically challenging of all walks as it contains many steps. It is accessible from Circuita Inferior. Bring lots of water, the walk is worth it however especially if you want to see some wild life such as huge lizards and various birds.

Triha Macuco– Is a typical rainforest trek which lasts for 3.5 KMs and has a trail through the forest. At the end, you can find small falls and views of the Rio Iguacu Inferior. Although, I have not found any monkeys when I was there that is the best place to spot them.
Words of advice, bring lots of water, as the water prices inside the park are terribly expensive and you will definitely need at least 1L of water per day. Enjoy this wonder, that neither pictures nor words can describe.
