To take into account: Puerto Iguazú is located to the northwest of the Argentine province of Misiones. The Falls are located 17 km from this town, on the border between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay; 1350 km north of Buenos Aires, capital of the Argentine Republic; And 300 km from Posadas, capital of the province of Misiones.- At the entrance to the Iguazu National Park is the Visitors Center, which has two thematic rooms detailing the biodiversity of the jungle and the region’s culture. – The Tren de la Selva borders the Iguazu River allowing the visitor to move comfortably inside the Park, reaching to the entrances of walkways and attractions of the place.
The Iguazu Falls are located within the Iguazú National Park, and it is there, on the border with Brazil, where the river enters a geological fault that forms a huge crack and as a consequence its waters literally fall to the void. These jumps reach almost seventy meters high, resulting in wonderful visuals.
