I am getting differing opinions on the extent of the malaria risk at Iguazu falls. Can anyone shed any light??

Cheers, Chris

I went to Iguazu Falls and never heard of any malaria risk.

There is no malaria risk at Iguacu. If you plan on travelling in other parts of Brazil you should ask your local health center. You can purchase malaria tablets if needed. Also remember to wear mosquito sprays and stay away from mosquito infested areas.
