Iguazu Falls help

We are doing an OAT trip to Chile and Argentina with an extension to Iguazu Falls. We have a little more than half a day on the Argentinian side. The next day is a full day on the Brazilian side. My question is should we skip the Brazilian side? Is there enough to see and do on the Argentinian side for 2 days? We would like to do the Zodiac ride.

We kept occupied with 1.5 days on the Argentine side. We walked the upper and lower falls, took the tram out to see Devils Throat and took a boat back from there and we did the Zodiac boat trip. We never made it to the island which u could spend several hours on. Beyond the Falls there are various trips and hikes u can take into the rainforest. Iguazu Falls is incredible.

I have been twice and stayed on the Argentine side both times. Take a day and see the Brazilian side; however, for safety concerns at night, I recommend Argentina. Both are spectacular and transportation is easy from side to side. I would take a day for each side - 2 full days.

I agree with the other poster.

Do both sides....you may only be there once.
No problem doing the Zodiak ride.
Try and stay dry

Definitely go to the Brazilian side. I actually preferred the views of the falls from Brazil - a much better panorama which provides a greater feel for the sheer size of these amazing falls (although you do get much closer on the Argentine side). The infrastructure on the Brazil side also seemed a lot more efficient. Whatever you decide to do you are about to see one of the most amazing sights in the world!
