The Cataratas do Iguazú gets 6 stars (but I can only give 5)! They are countless and marvelous, powerful and awe-inspiring. You'll get so close to some of the waterfalls that you'll get drenched (and you'll love it)! You can even ride a raft under the falls if you're more adventurous. The sleepy town of Puerto Iguazú itself is a mix of humble dwellings and hotels that are a varied economical, luxury, eco-friendly, and a mix of all three. At the edge of town, you'll find Tres Fronteras (Three Borders), where the waters of Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay meet. Oh, and in this sleepy little town, you'll also find the most delicious little shop for empanadas and cochillo: La Misionera.

IGUAZU The falls of Iguazu are falls of the Iguazu River on the border of Argentine and Brazil. The falls divide the river into the upper and lower Iguazu. Approximately half of the river flows falls into a long and narrow chasm called “Garganta del Diablo” - The Devils Throat.

Puerto Iguazu is the town on the Argentinian side of the Cataratas de Iguazu. I highly recommend staying here, as the Argentinian side of the falls is much more interesting than the Brazilian side, which is best for panoramic pictures

Yes it actually is Niagara Falls on steroids. Wear comfy shoes and spend the entire day. Amazingly beautiful and spectacular.
