Best time to visit Iguazu Falls
The city of Puerto Iguazu experiences a tropical climate and has two district seasons – wet and dry. Depending on what you’d like to see and do when you visit Iguazu Falls, you may choose either of these seasons. During the wet season (October through to February), the falls are at their most vibrant with water currents that leave guests in awe. It is also the hottest time of the year, with high humidity levels.
For those who might want to do a bit more exploring, the dry season (March to September) might be a better option though the water levels of the falls will be lower.

The small city of Puerto Iguazu is very safe as most of it has been built around catering to the tourists that visit. There is not much of a police presence but that is because the area has always been crime free. However, when travelling from the airport to your accommodation it would be best to arrange it ahead of time as taxi drivers have been known to overcharge tourists.
It is always important to have your vaccines up to date when you are travelling.
When visiting Argentina, it is recommended to get a vaccination for hepatitis A, as you will most likely be eating food that is unfamiliar. You should get a shot for typhoid if you’ll be doing any trips to smaller, more rural areas of the country. Other vaccines that are recommended are hepatitis B, yellow fever, malaria and rabies.
Please also note that there has been an outbreak of Zika in Argentina and pregnant women are advised against travelling there. Zika is spread via mosquito bites and unprotected sexual encounters.
