Did you get caught in a rainy day at Iguazu Falls? It’s more common than you think! Like any tropical place, sudden showers may sometimes appear, changing your plans.

Does this mean we should suspend our activities? Absolutely not!

This might interest you:

We recommend the following activities to do in Iguazu Falls, Puerto Iguazu, Foz do Iguazu, and surrounding areas on a rainy day:

Tour to Iguazu Falls National Park (Argentina Side)

The visit to the Argentine side of the Iguazu Falls is one of the main activities to do during your visit to this destination, together with the visit to the Brazilian side.

The tour to the Iguazu Falls in the argentinean side allows you to know the park from different angles, since it has three circuits: the lower circuit, where you can see several falls from below, the upper circuit where you can have a beautiful panoramic view of the park, and finally the Devil’s Throat, the best attraction of the park where you can get close to the waterfall and listen to its noise and get wet with its mist.

Discover the jungle with this complete activity!

Can you do this experience on a rainy day?

Absolutely! The Iguazu Falls area has the peculiarity of having strong rains that end quickly due to its subtropical climate. That means you can take shelter during your visit to the park under a roof and even continue exploring, as it is very common to end up wet from the mist of the waterfalls on this visit (not to mention if you do the Gran Aventura/Great Adventure boat tour, there you end up completely soaked), and therefore it’s easy to find raincoats to protect against the rain.
