Iguazu Falls

Top 10 Must-See Travel Destinations

Iguazu Falls in Argentina is one of the world's most striking waterfalls

MISIONES PROVINCE, ARGENTINA

Iguazú Falls

Iguazú National Park, situated on the international border of Argentina and Brazil, features one of the world’s most striking natural wonders. Iguazú Falls offers a misty and majestic realm of rushing, roaring water with rainbows adorning the cascades, which stretch for nearly 2 miles. Experience this marvel up close from one of the wooden walkways that stretch out over the river, and be sure to take in the spectacular vista from the giant balcony of the "Devil's Throat." According to ancient myths, a jealous god slashed the Iguazú River (meaning “great water”) in two, creating falls as high as 269 feet. The UNESCO site is bordered by its sister park Iguaçu in Brazil, and the falls are surrounded by the lush Misiones rainforest, so don’t be surprised to see tropical birds flitting about as they search for fish in quieter waters.

Plan your Iguazú Falls excursion at the Argentina Ministry of Tourism's official website
