 Iguazu Falls is arguably one of the most spectacular natural wonders of Latin America. Situated on the borders of Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay, Iguazu Falls is formed as the Iguazu River tumbles more than 80 meters (about 260 feet) over the Parana Plateau of Brazil. The highest fall, known as the Devil’s Throat, measures an impressive 82 meters (269 feet)! Now enjoy some of its most impressive views on this visual tour!

Reporting live from the rapids

The rushing water of Iguazu Falls sprays a cloud of mist as it cascades over the plateau, creating a subtropical microclimate which supports a variety of flora and fauna unique to the falls. You can get a close up look with a raft tour of the bottom of the falls from the Argentine side.

Views from Argentina and Brazil

There is a debate as to which side gives you the best views of the falls: Argentina or Brazil. While it is true that 80% of the falls flow through Argentina and the other 20% flow through Brazil, the angles from each country are absolutely spectacular.

On the Argentine side, the park has numerous trails and catwalks that give you many opportunities to snap a great picture of the falls.
