Photo of the Month: On the Border of Paradise
September was a great month for photography. Over the last few weeks we continued to feature and share dozens of the most inspiring and colorful destinations from around Latin America on our blog and social media pages. In that time, we received some amazing feedback and support from our clients, readers and followers. No image was more popular than the photo we posted on the Latin America for Less Facebook page on September 22. This vibrant and moving photo of Iguazu Falls, from the vantage point of Brazil, is pulsating with so much life that we had to choose it as the “Photo of the Month” for September.
The Iguazu River is on the border of the Brazilian state of Paraná and the Argentinian province of Misiones. The falls divide the river into the upper and lower Iguazu and form the border between the two countries.

Though stunning, the Iguazu Falls picture wasn’t the only one to capture our reader’s and follower’s imaginations. Another colorful photograph, this one coming to us from the Andean mountains of Cusco, was also one of the most popular and best-received images of the month. It shows a dream-like scene of the Nevado Salakantay with its peak of more than 20,000 feet, draped by waves of purple and pink hues. It served as a reminder that beauty is all around us. Sometimes it’s so close that all one has to do is look up.
