Iguazu Falls Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

Fly to “The Land of the Waterfalls” to see
one of the greatest natural spectacles on Earth. The westward winding Rio Iguazu joins the
Rio Paraná at the point where Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay meet. Welcome to the wonderful Iguazú Falls. The splendor of the falls with its misty rainbows
is almost overwhelming: there is simply nothing else like it in the
world. Millions of years ago, natural forces split
up the Earth’s crust, creating what the indigenous Guaraní people
called the “Great Waters”. Iguazú Falls is 1.7 miles wide and is not
one but an astonishing 275 waterfalls. Eighty percent of the falls lies in Argentina
and 20 percent in Brazil. Follow the boardwalk trail through the jungle
and stand on viewing platforms opposite or, if you are feeling brave, on top of….
the falls. Feel humbled by the power of the tumbling
water mass below you. In the wet season, a maximum of nearly 13,000
cubic meters of water, that’s 450,000 cubic feet, thunders over the
combined falls each second. Enjoy a more serene frontal view of the falls
from the shady viewpoints in Brazil. As seen from here, the river seems to drape
itself over the edge like a curtain. The central point, which receives about half
of the river’s flow at once, is called the Garganta del Diablo, or Devil’s
Throat. Dare a journey beneath the falls on a speedboat
safari. You are guaranteed to get wet! If you’d rather stay dry, take a helicopter ride over the U-shaped series
of falls to see how it forms a dramatic chasm in the earth’s
surface. Just away from the roaring water mass, is
the tranquility of the subtropical rainforest. Keep an eye out for the coatis, which are
after an easy meal. Butterflies, wild cats, fearsome reptiles and some 400
bird species share this extremely diverse habitat. Admire some of the creatures up close in the
nearby animal parks. Come and experience the magic-like spell of
Iguazú Falls. Getting there is easy: There are nearby airports
in Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. You can even stay the night in the national
park! Though it may not be the tallest, largest
or most powerful waterfall in the world, Iguazú Falls is certainly one of the most
picturesque. UNESCO declared it a protected world heritage
site because it is such a “magnificent liaison
between land and water”. Due to its unequaled beauty, Iguazú Falls
is one of the world’s most cherished wonders of nature.

  1. Hello guys, I made a video about my stay in Iguaçu, feel free to watch it and ask me any questions ! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=aSypQrV5voc

  2. Удивительные , красивые водопады и живописные картины! Спасибо за показ!

  3. South America is much more beauty!
    South America is much more colors!
    South America is much more America!

  4. You should not promote the helicopters rides, totally forbidden from Argentina side which disrupts nature there, you walk in the amazing rainforest and you listen that horrible thing that scares most birds.
    Brazil should banned them but they get to much profit from it. It is really unbelievable that they are still flying over.
    Most amazing thing I ever experience, is really overwhelming walk in the Garganta del Diablo pasarela and get there. You need 3 days to walk the whole thing, 2 days on Argentina walking alongside the falls, and 1 day enjoying the view from the Brazilian side.

  5. Iguazu River – 95% Brazil, 5% Argentina
    Iguazu Falls – 80% Argentina, 20% Brazil
    Panoramic view of Iguazu Waterfalls – Brazil

  6. Why did I have to listen about niagara falls, thru school et all… And: not a single word about Iguazu???

  7. Omg… this is worth seeing at least once in a lifetime before you die! :)) Certainly God's work…it looks like it almost escaped from Paradise…Magnificent! How can anybody dislike this? 🙂 I am in love… lol Definitely on my bucket list!

  8. My Top 5 Waterfalls in the world: 1) Angel Falls; 2) Victoria Falls; 3) Iguazu Falls; 4) Kaieteur Falls, 5) Niagara Falls. ¿Están de acuerdo? Do you agree?


  10. what does it matter where is better? Is not Argentina vs Brazil is just NATURE!!! stop arguing like ignorants about which side is better, be thankful this place is here on earth!!!

  11. It is interesting to see many comments trying to specify what percentage of the Iguazu falls belongs to which country and even some complain that the name of Paraguay was mentioned . . . well, historically the falls were in Paraguay until one of those tragic wars took away much of the territory of what was Paraguay before and ended in neighboring countries but . . . this marvel of nature doesn't belong to specific countries, it belongs to the whole world and should be respected and protected by all. I have been there several times, always in tears at some moment when the emotions are so strong I can't put them in a few words. Years ago I composed a piece dedicated to the falls.

  12. BELÍSSIMO BRASIL!!!!!!!!!!! EXUBERANTE!!!!!! 🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷
