With more than 250 waterfalls and an impressive flow of water from the Iguazu River, we tell you where to stay in Iguazu Falls.
The Iguazu Falls are one of the great wonders of the world, located on the border between Argentina and Brazil. Protected by natural parks on both sides of the border, the most important waterfalls such as the Garganta del Diablo can be seen just a few meters away thanks to the footbridges that have been built over the river.
🔝 See this article with complete information to visit the iguazu falls.
If you are going to visit the Iguazu Falls it is advisable to do the tour from both sides, that is to say, to see them from both the Argentinean and Brazilian sides, since the view is quite different. In addition, you can take boat rides and soak in the water under the falls, and enjoy the ecological train to Puerto Canoas.

Where to stay in Iguazu Falls next to the waterfalls
Currently there are only two hotels located next to the Iguazu Falls and inside the national park, one on the Argentine side and the other on the Brazilian side. Although the price is not cheap, since they are five-star accommodations, if you can afford it, it is highly recommended since the view of the falls from the hotel and listening to the water flow is priceless.
The Gran Melia Iguazu is the hotel located on the Argentine side and constitutes a large complex in itself, with impressive views of the falls. It has 3 restaurants and 4 bars inside, a spa area and a large swimming pool surrounded by a green garden. In many of the rooms the balconies have a stunning view of the falls, where you can hear the force of the water. A dream come true!
On the Brazilian side, the Hotel das Cataratas is the one located next to the waterfalls. Decorated with mosaics and period furniture in the Portuguese style, it has 2 restaurants, a bar and a swimming pool. For us it does not have the great views of the falls as the Gran Melia, but its location is strategic. In addition, it has the advantage of visiting the waterfalls outside the usual visiting hours, with few people around you.
