This spectacular landscape of crashing waterfalls was once held sacred by the Guarani people, who called it Iguassu, or "Big Water." Straddling the border of Brazil and Argentina, Iguassu Falls is an enormous basalt staircase streaked with some 275 cascades, rising shear and gray from the humid subtropical rain forest to 269-foot (82-meter) cliffs arranged in an ever eroding arc of incredible waterfalls that span almost two miles (3 km).This incredible natural attraction is a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Puerto Iguazu is the Argentina gateway - from here you can tour the Brazilian side, tour both sides and take other sightseeing tours to nearby attractions like the San Ignacio Mission or the Itaipu Dam on the Brazil-Paraguay border.

While Argentina, with 80% of the falls, has more trails and activities, the Brazilian side, with tours leaving from Foz do Iguacu, offers the finest views. Pedestrian walkways descend into the fierce rainbow-strewn mists of Fiorano Falls, and take in panoramic vistas over the massive flowing curtain of Rivadavia Falls, which cascades across a plateau before separating into the powerful Three Musketeers. Take an elevator to a postcard-perfect viewpoint over Garganta del Diablo (Devil's Throat), considered the most spectacular scene in the park.

Practical Info

The best time to photograph Iguassu Falls is in the morning, making it the perfect time to enjoy the Brazilian side. Though you only need three hours to explore the paved walkways and viewpoints, you could easily spend the day.
