Flight options.

There is 2 Airports serving Iguassu (Iguazu, Iguaçu) Falls, IGU on the Brazilian side and IGR on the Argentinian side.
See here for a map of airports connecting to IGU and IGR  forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=3052.msg1363094#msg1363094

When searching for award availability search first to connecting  airports as for example, from NYC VIA Brazil search

JFK-GIG  on Tam (BA.com) and/or AA (AA.com)
JFK- GRU AA, Delta
EWR-GRU UA
COPA airlines flies thru Panama City and GRU (usually 2 stops)

Argentina options

Aerolineas Argentina JFK-EZE
LAN Argentina


Hotels
Belmont in the Brazilian side of the park
Sheraton Iguazu in the Argentina side of the park. (SPG)
Park Hyatt Iguacu Falls coming soon!

Major Activities

The Argentinian side is more up-close and personal.
You will need to walk both the upper and lower trail on the Argentina side. The upper will take about an hour, the lower about 2. Make sure to do the boat ride on the lower trail for the most awesome views. You will get soaked so take along a ziplock for your camera. You can also take the train to Devils point

The Brazillian side is more of a panorama view.
On the Brazil side at the falls there is less walking as you are not next to the falls like on the Argentina side but rather across the river from them. You will take a tram to the start of the trail on the Brazil side and just walk along side the falls, starting from the pink hotel till the end. When you get to the end is when you will be totally blown away. Walk out on the boardwalk and you will get the most amazing view of the falls.

Bird park well worth about an hour

Helicopter tour on the Brazillian side (Argentina band it as its not Eco friendly)

There is a  huge dam you can tour that powers all of Paraguay and huge portions of Brazil and Argentina

Airport Transfer Options

Cabs are available at fairly cheap from both airports to the park and hotels (cross border too)

Just spoke with AA to add an infant (lap child) AEP - IGR and they told me there is no fee, should need to come to the airport to get ticketed. Can anyone confirm this? I don't want to show up at the airport and have them tell me it will cost $250 to add an infant as a lap child..

You're lucky. Domestic flights within South Africa all require infants to have paid lap fares (which are almost always under $10).

I'm in Iguazu now, this place is beautiful. Falls are amazing. The Sheraton is nice, although the actual rooms are pretty mediocre for a category 5 destination. I have a full day tomorrow and I'm trying to see what would be the best thing to do. Any ideas are welcome.

What did you decide on originally? Walk on the trails and go to garganta del diablo.

Does anyone know if there are wheelchairs (or some other accommodation for the handicapped) available by the falls?

Yes. Nearly all the walkways are wheelchair accessible.

according to the website there seems to be wheelchairs or electric carts http://www.iguazuargentina.com/en/accesibilidad/
alternatively call the hotels (which ever side you;re on, Belmond for Brazil, Sheraton for Argentina)
