What to do at Awasi Iguazu?

Iguazú Falls, said to be one of the seven natural wonders of the world, are Argentina’s showstopper. Hearing the thunderous roar of cascading waters and feeling the falls’ spray as you approach by boat is incredible. We recommend allowing a full day to explore both the Argentine and Brazilian sides of the falls, wandering the walkways in the morning to take in spectacular views, and then in the afternoon, enjoying a boat trip, or even a helicopter ride, to observe Iguazú’s sheer enormity and the beauty of mother nature at her most powerful.

There’s also plenty more to explore in the surrounding rainforest, one of Argentina’s most diverse and unexplored regions. Learn about the thousands of endemic plants and animals. Discover the region’s landscape, culture and history, visiting archaeological sites such as 18th Century Jesuit ruins, trekking through the jungle to meet with local Guarani tribes to learn about their ancient artisan crafts, and bird watching on a beautiful boat ride to a sunset picnic. Each excursion is personalised and handcrafted for you by Awasi’s professionally trained guides in archaeology, history, flora and fauna. 

After a day of adventure, you will be utterly spoiled on your return to Awasi. Enjoy a refreshing swim in the plunge pool, indulge in a cocktail at the bar in the main lodge and relax over a delicious dinner in the restaurant.

Map & location

There are direct flights to Puerto Iguazu (IGR) from cities across Argentina, such as Salta, Buenos Aires and Córdoba. For those coming from Brazil, there are direct flights to Foz de Iguaçu (IGU) from Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro

Awasi includes private transfers from and to Puerto Iguazu (30 minutes) and Foz de Iguaçu (1 hour). From Posadas, it is a 4 hour drive.

When to Travel

The falls are spectacular and flowing all year around. However, we recommend visiting between late March to May, or August to early October. 

Late March to May is the dry season and boasts sunshine, manageable heat and less chance of being caught in the rain! With the exception of Easter weekend, the park is also less crowded.

August to early October are also dry months but the weather is a little cooler, making it an excellent time to explore the surrounding rainforest.

During these periods of lower rainfall, the waterfalls aren’t at their peak, but they are certainly no less impressive.

Between December and February, the falls have their highest water levels. That being said, the high rainfall can mean some hiking trails are closed and the park is crowded as both Brazilians and Argentinians take their summer holidays.
