Experience the Argentine side of the magnificent Iguazu Falls with the guidance of a local Guaraní Guide.
Learn about the origins of this mysthical place and the true behind its name.
The name “Iguazú” comes from the Guaraní or Tupí words “y” [ɨ], meaning “water”, and “ûasú” [waˈsu], meaning “big”.
You will get to know the 3 parts of the falls circuits:
Devil’s Throat: Before doing the other two paths, board a little train for a 4 km ride to Devil’s Throat Station surrounding the upper part of the Iguazu River. From here, walk by a bridge walkway that leads to the balcony of the Devil’s Throat.
Upper Walk: A walk of 500 meters long and lasts about 45 minutes seeing the Two Sisters, Bosetti, Adam and Eve, Bernabe Mendez, Mbiguá and San Martin falls from the upper part. There’s a choice to rappel down or to take a 4 x 4 vehicle to the lower part of the falls.
Lower Path: With a professional tourist guide, walk approximately 1,300 meters along a foot path for about 1.5 hrs. viewing the falls from below.
After the visit to the Park we will stop at a local Guaraní Village located on the Iguazú Jungle.
This will be a unique opportunity to learn about the ancient culture of Guaranies.
The community will open their doors to you and they will share their secrets of the jungle, its natural medicine, culture, songs, dances, crafts, philosophy of life and beliefs. Discover the “Spirit of the trees” of the Guarani, a walk where you learn to walk inside the jungle guided by aboriginal experts.
