Argentina vs. Brazil: Which Side of Iguazu Falls is Better?

To see more of my discussion on the topic of Brazil vs. Argentina and which side of Iguazu Falls is better to visit, check out my blog article /> Iguazu Falls, or Iguassu Falls as it's written in Portuguese, is one of the wonders of natural wonders of the world. It really is spectacular. However, many visitors wonder which side of Iguazu Falls is better? If I can only visit one side of Iguazu Falls which should I see? And well many might argue that one side is actually better, I think that the Argentina vs. Brazil battle is really no warranted here. Both sides of Iguazu Falls are worth visiting. Both sides of Iguazu falls have their pros and cons. For example, I think that the Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls gives you a better panoramic view of the falls. It allows you to see the falls more than on the Argentinean side. But, you are farther from the waterfalls. On the Argentina side of the falls, you are right in and amidst the falls which is a really cool experience. So, really there is no real victor here. Anyways, in this video I share my thoughts on which side of Iguazu Falls is better in case you only have the chance to see one of those two sides on your visit.

Now I feel bad for not making the trip when I was in Buenos Aires for a few weeks; great shots and I think it's beautiful no matter where you're standing!

Foz do Iguaçu is the only big city near the falls, the Argentine side does not even have infrastructure

Thanks for your V-Logs. I enjoy watching them and I feel nicely inspired. About the Falls - I spent two days there - I like both, even for me the Argentina Side was for me in some kind more impressive. I loved the birds which dived to the waterfall, reaching their nest and for sure the massive amount of water. I possibly I would recommend everyone visiting both side.

The Devil's Throat is in Argentina. Iguazu Falls 80% Argentina, 20 % Brazil. The Argentina side is better.

I'm curious as to why you prefer long slow shutter to soften the water. My preference is to have the action and spray lovely and sharp, but you obviously have a ton more experience than me.

I love how you video your location and show the subsequent shot. Very informative. Hotel and travel costs would be interesting to know too.

As cataratas estão 60% na Argentina e 40% no Brasil, no entanto uma completa a outra, os dois lados são lindos.
As a more modest northern Swede I think you should lay back on the superlatives and the photo effects and let nature do the talking. It doesn't give a serious feel when every other word is "cool". Amazing place though, and I thank your for letting me experience it in high definition. Even though I think you should capture it more in it's all natural beauty, rather than the color book mode that most of your shots got. I enjoyed the video more than the still shots.

Hi, Brendan! I visited the Falls many times. When I think of going back there there's a special experience I'd like to live again: Having a "shower" under the Salto Bossetti! It's such a wonderful feeling! I loved it! I think you have an incredible panorama from the Brazilian side, but in the Argentinian side you have an experience of the falls! Saludos! 👋👏

Hey Dude. Thanks for comments.. But you know what? Borders are a creation of men. Nature is One! Who care about which side is better? There is only one piece of landscape with many points of view! The division is in your mind. Just enjoy and be happy!
Thx you made me laugh! ("I had no battery"). :)

You're an stupid cos u prefer pele too so it's obvious u prefer Brazil.....the only thing is important and the world knows it is that we in Argentina we have the 80 percent of the iguazu falls.....these falls are more from Argentina........Brazil just got the beautiful view thanks to the Argentina your opinion doesn't count..... and stay away from Argentina🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷

The Brazilian side is way better, that is why Brazil gets 72% of visitors while Argentina gets only 28% of visitors, the Brazilian side is way better for tourists because only there you can see the entire panoramic view of the waterfalls, only there you can visit The Bird Park with over a 1,4 thousand birds from 150 species, only there you can visit the Dreamland Complex which is a dinosaur and wax museum, only there you can visit the Itaipu Dam which is the largest dam in the world open for tourists, only there you can visit the Buddhist Temple, and only there you have access to over a 500 hotels while on the Argentinian side there is barely 70 hotels. On the Brazilian side the city is huge with 260 thousand inhabitants while on the Argentinian side the city is small and boring, on the Brazilian side you have car access to both Argentina and Paraguay, while on the Argentinian side there is no road access to Paraguay, for all the above that is why the vast majority of tourists prefer to visit the Brazilian side.
