When to Visit Iguazu
December through March is the summer rainy season at Iguazu Falls, featuring higher temperatures and a significant increase in the water power and spray emanating from the falls. Due to the higher volume of water, the falls are most impressive and continuous during this period. However, depending on the amount of rain, it could lead to closure of specific sectors of either National Park, especially San Martin Island and the Devil's Throat. Yet if your prepared for the elements and have a nice comfortable hotel with views to seek refuge, visiting during this time can be as good as any.
How to Visit Iguazu Falls
When the first European explorers made their way through the subtropical forest to get their first glimpse of Iguazu Falls, they witnessed one of the most powerful and intense displays of nature on the planet. Today, when the modern visitor first sets his sights on Iguazu falls, nature's power is as impactful as ever. Maybe it was this reverence of God's creation, that the catholic church established an important Mission here that brought Christianity to large swaths of the natives. It's towering walls and deep history are still visible tucked away in the forest reminding you that man's creation is always trumped by the eternity of nature.
