Iguaçu Falls (also spelled Iguazú or Iguassu Falls) is one of the most stunning places in the world. I’ve been lucky enough to have experienced it in 2005 and 2014 and can’t wait to go back again. It’s everything that Niagara is not. My own amateur pictures below from our family trip last October can’t possible capture even a fraction of its grandeur, it’s truly awe-inspiring to experience in person.
A ticket from the US to Iguazu is typically well over $1,000, this is the cheapest price I’ve ever seen for this route. Miles can be credited to OneWorld airlines like American and British Airways.

Eleanor Roosevelt had it right when she said “Poor Niagara” upon seeing it. Instead of being in middle of a concrete jungle it’s in middle of beautiful rainforest with wonderfully fresh air. It’s much bigger and far grander than Niagara Falls.
You can see it up close and personal from the Argentine side and you can view the majesty of it from the Brazilian side. Both sides have their own airport, IGU on the Brazilian and IGR on the Argentine side. Unfortunately both Argentina and Brazil charge a $160 reciprocity fee for Americans to visit, though the visas do last for a decade.
You’ll need a day on each side just to see the sights and more than that to get into the myriad of adventures available. There is an SPG category 5 Sheraton in the Argentine side in the national park with a view of the falls.
You can use 7,500 Avios to fly from IGR to Buenos Aires/AEP on LAN, a haven for kosher food. 4,500 Avios is enough to fly on TAM from IGU to the largest city in the western Hemisphere, Sao Paulo. 7,500 Avios is enough to fly on TAM from IGU to stunning Rio de Janeiro. Flights to AEP will need to be booked over the phone with British Airways. No fuel surcharges apply.
You can also use 25,000 Delta miles for 2 flights within Brazil or Argentina on partners Gol or Aerolineas Argentinas. Or 12,500 United miles is enough for an intra-Brazil flight on Azul, an airline founded by David Neeleman of JetBlue fame who obviously has a favorite color.
