Overview

Introduction

Indisputably one of the natural wonders of the world, Iguazu Falls has over 275 waterfalls extending over a frontage of 3 kms. The sight and sound of the falls is spectacular and a highlight of any trip to Argentina.

An average 1,750 cubic metres of water per second fall across 275 individual waterfalls. The water plunges over a 60 metre precipice, with a frontage of 2.7km.

The falls are 20 metres higher and much wider than Niagara and are protected by the Argentinean and Brazilian National Parks. Begonias, orchids, ferns, palms and butterflies abound as do 450 bird species (120 permanent) including toucan, parrots and swifts.

The waterfalls, viewed from an extensive network of wooden catwalks, lie across the Brazilian and Argentinian borders and both sides should be visited. The Argentineans are very keen to preserve the pristine environment and a railway, run on natural gas, takes you along the upper part of the Iguazu river to the Devil’s throat station.

Argentina’s contrasts never cease to amaze me. One day you could be walking across the sculpted surface of a vast creaking glacier and the next visiting an evocative Jesuit ruins at San Ignacio in Misiones.
