Iguacu Falls

Iguacu Falls



Although not in Paraguay, these spectacular falls are easily accessible via the 1,650-ft-/500-m-long Friendship/International Bridge at Ciudad del Este. Iguacu is made up of 475 cascades spanning a distance of 2 mi/3 km and rising to a height of 300 ft/90 meters. Be sure to see the view from Devil's Throat, on the Argentinean (southern) side. Stay overnight (at least) so you can see the falls under different light conditions. Because of the seasonal variations in water levels, the best times to see the falls are October-December or March-May. About 230 mi/370 km by road east of Asuncion.
