Likewise, new self-check-in machines and a new free wi-fi service will be installed, and the number of gastronomic and commercial establishments will increase.

These improvements are an addition to the modernization works that began in 2017, such as the expansion of available parking spaces for cars at the airport, which went from 188 to 400 garages, including spaces for pregnant women and people with reduced mobility. A new control tower, 27 meters high, was also launched with 360 ° visual lenses.

Temporary closure of Salta Airport

In addition to the Iguazú Airport, the Martín Miguel de Güemes Airport in Salta, Argentina, will also temporarily close from April 15 to May 6, 2018 -including both days- for maintenance work on the runway.

Due to this closure, the flights of Andes and Aerolíneas Argentinas will be transferred to the Gobernador Horacio Guzmán de Jujuy Airport. However, airlines that do not have an operating base in Jujuy, such as Amaszonas, Latam and Boa, will not operate during those 21 days.

You’ve no doubt heard plenty about the mighty Iguazú Falls, which border Argentina and Brazil, but we bet there are some things you didn’t know. Below we’ve listed 10 curious facts about Iguazú Falls, so you can show off your knowledge and fully prepare yourself ahead of your trip to Argentina.

1. Iguazu Falls has the greatest average annual flow

During rainy season, which lasts from November through till the start of March, the rate of flow can rise to a whopping 450,000 cubic feet per second! As a result, Iguazú Falls currently has the greatest average annual flow of any waterfall in the world, twice as great as that of Niagara Falls.

2. It’s one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature

Iguazú Falls was selected as one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature by the New Seven Wonders of the World Foundation in 2011 with more than  1 thousand million of votes from people from all over the world.

3. It was discovered by the Spaniards

The first European to come across Iguazú Falls was Spanish Conquistador Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca, after whom one of the falls on the Argentine side is named. A man named Boselli is credited for having re-discovered them  in the late 1800s.

4. It was all the serpent’s fault

There is a legend that explains how the falls were created: Mboi, a god in the form of a serpent, was to marry a beautiful woman called Naipi but Naipi was in love with a young warrior, with whom she fled in a canoe. When Mboi discovered this, he was enraged and sliced the river with his serpent tail, thereby creating the falls and causing the young lovers to sink.

5. …Or that of a volcano (choose your version)

Iguazú Falls was in actual fact formed as the result of a volcanic eruption, which left a large crack in the earth.

6. Iguazu, the ‘big water’

When translated from the native Indian language, Guaraní, Iguazú translates to ‘Big Water’, a fairly fitting description.

7. There are birds living inside

There are a species of birds called Great Dusky Swifts that nests in places on the rock walls behind the falls, and are often seen plunging right into them.

Great Dusky Swifts are often seen plunging into the falls

8. It is a major electricity supplier

The power of Iguazú Falls has been used to create hydroelectricity and produces 40% of the electricity consumed by both Argentina and Brazil.

9. It’s a world heritage site

Iguazú National Park, where the falls are located, was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List due to its exceptional natural beauty and because it’s home to rare and endangered species.

10. Indiana Jones was here!

Iguazu Falls featured in the Indiana Jones movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the first not to be filmed in the UK. It has also featured in films Moonraker (1979), The Mission (1986), Mr. Magoo (1997) and Miami Vice (2006).

The falls feature in a number of films, including Indiana Jones

The province of Misiones in Argentina is home to the famous Iguazú Falls, where numerous tourists from around the world come to marvel at this natural wonder. For those looking to spend more than just a day or two in this part of the country we’ve selected a handful of interesting things to do in Misiones, which will enable you to sample it’s wonderful natural resources and venture beyond the falls.

De la Cruz Theme Park: nature and religion combined

De la Cruz Theme Park is situated on Santa Ana Hill, providing delightful panoramic views over the Paraná Jungle. There is a trail that splits into two routes: one for nature, the other for reflection, meditation and religious celebrations. The former gives you the chance to identify exotic wildlife species and visit natural springs, whereas the latter offers stations for prayer and reflection. The park features a concrete building with the cross of Santa Ana on top, which is illuminated at sunset every day, creating a unique spectacle. Inside the building, you can watch shows at the Jungle Theatre and admire the artwork on display at the Exhibitions Gallery, as well as  choose from a number of places to relax with a coffee or lunch. At the centre of the park, there is a butterfly farm and an orchid farm, both inspired by nature of the region.

San Ignacio Jesuit Ruins: discover Guaraní culture

San Ignacio was one of the missions founded by the Jesuits during the Spanish colonial period. Its ruins, which were rediscovered and restored in the 1900s, are the most complete of those in Argentina and provide an excellent example of ‘Guaraní baroque’. You can take a San Ignacio Jesuit Ruins tour, which gives you the opportunity to explore the magnificent red sandstone church with the assistance of a professional tour guide. The guide will teach you about the work of the missionaries and the importance of their contributions to the religious and cultural aspects of Guaraní culture. Just beside the exit of the church, there is a museum containing some excellent carved paving stones, which is also worth a visit.

Moconá Waterfall: “the one that swallows all”

This waterfall was named after the Guaraní word ‘Moconá’ meaning “the one that swallows all”, which is perfectly fitting for this vast body of water. Moconá is one of the most unique waterfalls in the world, for rather than running perpendicular to the river, it runs parallel to it, due to a narrow underwater canyon located below. Visitors can stand at the centre and enjoy watching a seemingly endless wall of falling water, which surrounds them at 180 degrees. Around the falls you’ll find the pristine Atlantic Forest, where the Moconá Provincial Park was established. From here, you can enjoy breathtaking viewpoints, sight various different species of flora and fauna and go hiking along one of the many trails. If you’re interested in this great alternative activity in Iguazu, Argentina4u offers a tour to Moconá Falls.

Moconá Waterfall runs parallel to the Uruguay River

Wanda Mines: gems galore

Wanda is a small town located approximately 40 kilometres from Puerto Iguazú, which was named after a Polish princess who was very fond of gems. At the Wanda Mines, you’ll find a gemstone site which contains quartz crystals, amethysts, agates and topazes, to name a few varieties. From Route 12, there are several mining companies just a few kilometres away, which provide guided tours that enable travellers to appreciate the different sectors of the mines, workshops and showrooms. You can also visit Wanda Mines as part of the San Ignacio Jesuit Ruin Excursion.

Yacutinga: private rainforest reserve

Yacutinga is a private rainforest reserve in the northeastern corner of Misiones, roughly two hours west of Iguazu Falls. Not only is it home to countless species of birds, mammals and plants, but it also protects several endangered species, such as the jaguar, tapir and ocelot, though it is rare to spot these creatures there. Within the reserve you’ll find the Yacutinga Lodge, the first eco-lodge in Argentina, which was built using fallen wood from the forest, recycled bottles, cans and plastic. Created specifically for nature lovers, this lodge offers a unique way to explore the surrounding jungle and enjoy safaris with expert naturalist guides.

Iguazú National Park is located in the Misiones Province in the Northeastern tip of Argentina, bordering the Brazilian state of Parana. It is known across the globe for the vast, breathtaking Iguazú Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. The river that falls, which was aptly named after the indigenous term for ‘great water’, marks the border between Argentina and Brazil, before flowing into the might Parana River. Along both rivers, you can carry out tours of Iguazú, which enable you to see the immense falls from various different angles.

Things to do in Iguazú National Park

Aside from carrying out tours, you can enjoy Iguazu National Park in the following ways:

Explore the trails

There are a number of trails that can be explored in Iguazú National Park, such as the Upper Circuit, which takes you through the upper falls area and the Lower Circuit, a circular path from which you have access to eight different major viewpoints. You can also take a boat to Isla San Martin from here, where you can enjoy a beautiful beach and some exceptional views. The boat is free and the crossing takes just three minutes.

Take the train up to the Devil’s Throat

The Garganta del Diablo, ie. Devil’s Throat, is a giant waterfall in the shape of a horseshoe. You can take the Rainforest Ecological Train to the entrance, or reach it via the Paseo Garganta del Diablo, a kilometre long trail which takes you directly over the falls.

Devil's Throat: giant waterfall shaped like a horseshoe

Relax with a tasty meal

There are several restaurants in the park, such La Selva, a buffet-style restaurant featuring hot and cold dishes and all-you-can-eat parrilla. If you’re happy to fork out a little more, then Restaurante Garganta del Diablo is another, rather more elegant, option which offers spectacular views over the waterfalls as well as delicious local cuisine. On top of these, there are plenty of fast food shacks and shops selling sandwiches, pizzas and empanadas.

Admire the wildlife

The wildlife in Iguazú National Park is almost as fascinating as the falls themselves. Amongst other animals, you’re likely to see exotic birds, jaguars, crocodiles, monkeys and coatis. Be careful, as these last two are prone to biting, stealing food and rummaging through bags, so watch your possessions!

One of the 7 natural wonders of the world, the Iguazu falls are known to be one of Argentina’s most precious national treasures. Situated north of Buenos Aires, the falls mark the border between the Argentine province of Misiones and the Brazilian state of Parana. Iguazu consists of 275 falls over 2.7 km wide and falling from a height of up to 82 metres. It is truly an amazing sight not to be missed during your travels to Argentina!

Usually travellers coming to Argentina, spend 1 day or 2 maximum visiting the Iguazu falls. After all there are so many places to see and things to do in Argentina. But what few travellers know if that if you time your visit to Iguazu well, there is a very special way to see the waterfalls and enjoy the exotic nature of the Misiones jungle: a full moon tour to the Iguazu falls.

Seeing Iguazu by moonlight, with the light of the moon casting a glow on the famous falls, offers you a completely new perspective on the falls, as well as quite a romantic atmosphere. Iguazu at night is enchanting and an unforgettable experience.

The tour to Iguazu by moonlight will pick you up from your hotel and take you to Iguazu National Park. Here you’ll walk along the upper circuit of the park to the main attraction of the falls: Devil’s Throat (Garganta del Diablo). Enjoy the magnificent view, heightened by night sky, before toasting under the moonlight and taking in the hypnotising atmosphere, leaving you with perfect memories of a bewitching Iguazu Falls Tour.

If your visit to Iguazu coincides with the full moon, you can book this tour on arrival to the town. Keep in mind that it is weather dependent, and is thus subject to last minute cancellations. Make a regular booking to visit Iguazu Falls during the day, either with a visit to just Argentina’s side, or visiting both the Argentine and Brazilian side of the falls. Your tour guide will then be able to help you book this special experience.
