Iguazú Waterfalls

The Iguazú Waterfalls, located on the Iguazú River, is an awe-inspiring natural wonder located in the northeastern corner of Argentina. This magnificent series of waterfalls is part of the Iguazú National Park and is one of the most spectacular sights in the country. The waterfalls span a width of 2.7 kilometers and consist of 275 individual cascades, the most impressive of which is the Devil’s Throat, which is 80 meters tall. The Iguazú River forms the border between Argentina and Brazil, and the falls are divided between the two countries.

The Iguazú River is a tributary of the Paraná River, and is fed by the Paraná’s waters. The waterfalls were formed by the erosion of the river’s basaltic rock over millions of years, creating a series of steep cascades. The area is characterized by its lush vegetation, with over 2000 species of plants and animals living in the park.

The Iguazú Waterfalls have been a popular tourist destination for centuries, with records of travelers visiting the area dating back to 1541. In 1984, the falls were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and have since become one of the most visited sites in Argentina. The Iguazú National Park is home to a variety of activities, such as boat rides, hikes, and bird-watching, making it a great destination for nature lovers.

The Iguazú Waterfalls are a breathtaking natural wonder that attract visitors from all over the world. The falls are an important part of Argentina’s history, culture, and ecology, and are a must-see for anyone visiting the country.
