Just to add a few thoughts...the Cataratas offers many more cloe-in photo ops than the Sheraton...and evokes the spirit of Colonial South America. Their poolside evening churascarria is outstanding. The enveloping ambience throughout the establishment adds so very much to the experience. Much quieter and relaxing than the other hotels in the vicinity.

Also, there are several footpaths , each leading to a dramatic closeup view of many of the powerful cataracts (171 in all!)..the roar getting louder as you approach (and you will get wet!).

Whatever your choices...have fun...it's all enchanting...be sure to take the boat ride which goes smack up against the falls...there is a jeep ride and a long, slippery walk through the rain forest leading to the boat dock. Your camera trigger finger will get a workout.
