Gay Iguazu Falls - The Nomadic Boys

The famous Iguazu Falls are a bucket-list item for many travellers, both gay and straight. This amazing sight is the largest waterfall system in the world and absolutely breathtaking up close as you watch thousands of gallons of water plummeting into the foam.

The falls straddle the border between Argentina and Brazil, which means you can stay in either country if you want to visit the waterfalls. It can be confusing to figure out which side is best, or even how to understand the differences, but don’t worry, ’cause we’re here to help!

This is our gay travel guide to Iguazu Falls and the surrounding area. Here you can find out our personal top picks for gay friendly accommodation, gay bars, clubs and restaurants around Iguazu Falls.

The two sides of the Iguazu Falls

So, first things first, these spectacular waterfalls have a few names. In English, we call them “Iguazu Falls” and the surrounding area, the “Iguazu National Park”. Both Argentina and Brazil have cities very close by, each of which are the perfect base when visiting the falls. In Brazil, the city is “Foz do Iguaçu” whereas in Argentina it is “Puerto Iguazú”.

Travelling between the two towns over the border is easy. You can either go by taxi or public bus. The entire trip shouldn’t take more than an hour. Remember to have your passport with you and to have already organised any visa requirements you may need for Brazil and Argentina.

Iguazu Falls - Jaime Davila

Sometimes you hear about a place for so long that you just can’t wait to see for yourself. You hear about how amazing it is… about how majestic it is….. about how grand it is…. about how beautiful it is…about how impressive it is… and just about everything you can ever imagine. Yes that is Iguazu Falls I kept hearing about. I am sure if you have heard about it from someone who has visited it you have heard one of the above and it’s all true.

“Iguazu Falls, Iguazu Falls, Iguassu Falls, Iguacu Falls, Cataratas do Iguacu (Portuguese), Cataratas del Iguazu (Spanish) or Chororo Yguasu (Guarani) are a collection of waterfalls from the Iguazu River on the border with Argentina and Brazil. The name “Iguazu” comes from the Guarani or Tupi words “y”, meaning “water”, and “uasu “, meaning “big”. Legend has it that a deity planned to marry a beautiful woman named Naipi, who fled with her mortal lover Taroba in a canoe. In a rage, the deity sliced the river, creating the waterfalls and condemning the lovers to an eternal fall.”
