Visit the Argentine side of Iguazu Falls
Iguazú Falls is the most impressive waterfall on the planet. Composed of over 300 separate cataracts, all intertwining and gushing together into one awe-inspiring masterpiece of nature, it has the power to render even the most jaded traveller speechless. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s a vast array of wildlife to be seen within the lustrous mantle of subtropical foliage that surrounds the falls, and the sky is often arced by multiple rainbows formed in its perpetual mists.
The falls span the border between Argentina and Brazil, and both countries have their own national park with trails showcasing the gushing cascades from a variety of angles. The Argentine side of the falls has the most extensive network of walkways, taking you above, below and even behind the water. All are spectacular but the upper walkways are particularly astounding – there’s even the chance to stand right on the precipice of the Devil’s Throat and watch the falls thunder over the edge into the foaming chasm below. You can easily spend a whole day exploring the park’s many paths, boardwalks and viewpoints.
