Iguazú is without doubt the most impressive natural wonder of South America! The spectacular waterfalls are situated on the border between Argentina and Brazil. The waterfalls are the widest of the world, with up to 260 (depending on the water level, which can vary) big and small waterfalls with a total width of almost two miles.
Standing at the river crossing of the Paraná and Iguazú Rivers, you can see the three land point of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. The word ´Iguazú’ means ‘big water’ in Guarani, an indigenous language spoken mostly in Paraguay. Legend has it that a god planned to marry a beautiful woman named Naipí, who fled with her mortal lover Tarobá in a canoe. In rage the god sliced the river, creating the waterfalls and condemning the lovers to an eternal fall.
