What people are saying about Puerto Iguazu

I was a bit confused about what I booked bf I arrived Iguazu, bc there are 2 full day tours, still some activities are similar. This could be better explained in the ads. They made it clear for me once got there. On rainy days there must be extra precautions must be taken I believe, our first day was under heavy rain, I couldn't continue to the 2nd path, since I had 3 days in total, I visited the park again and did the path. They help you via whatsapp and answer your questions within acceptable time limits. In the end I spent 3 days with the crew I am happy with them.

Booking the tour is quite useless if you need it in English but they pick you up abs drop you off at your hotel and help organize the jungle boat if you want it and didn’t book it in advance.

Wonderful experience!!! However, I recommend buying the tickets via get your guide for entry into the national park, as they are very expensive on site
