After the preventive weather closure on Saturday, October 28th, Iguazu National Park will remain closed until Wednesday, November 1st.
This was decided at a technical meeting this morning by the different entities that work together in the administration of the park: Héctor Bell, head of National Park Rangers, Iguazú Argentina, concessionaire of the area, as well as Iguazú National Park intendant Claudio Sacramento.
This time, the heavy rains have not only generated an extraordinary increase in the flow of the Iguazú River, compromising the walkways of La Garganta del Diablo, but the gusts and hail have caused the fall of poles and trees, endangering visitors who are in the other circuits.
