All waves are endless, but the number of waves you need to survive to "win" varies by difficulty. (50 on Easy, 65 on Normal, I think it's 85 on Hard.)
My one complaint is that regardless of the map, the waves of balloons always seem to appear in the same order, so once you know this you'll always know what you'll need to be ready for and by what wave number. (It might change on the higher difficulty levels, though - I can't even clear Hard yet even WITH this foreknowledge!)
It's also nice that you can't just spam a couple types of towers and expect to be able to deal with everything that comes at you. "Am I ready to have my defenses broken by a bunch of Ceramics? Yeah, right, I've got mages and super monkeys all over the place. Bring it on!" [GAME OVER] "Um ... whut?"
