Iguazu Falls, Argentina

Iguazu Falls

A named natural wonder in a tropical setting, the falls are one of Argentina’s most revered sights.

Comprised of 275 individual waterfalls and cataracts that spout as much as 13,000 cubic metres of water every second, the roaring Iguazú Falls produce an awe-inspiring cloud of multicoloured mist that hovers over the inland rainforest that is shared by both Argentina and Brazil.

More About Iguazu Falls

The Iguazu National Park is a subtropical rainforest that is brimming with wildlife and plant species, including tapirs, howler monkeys, giant anteaters, caimans and jaguars. A named natural wonder in a tropical setting, the falls are one of the nation’s most revered sights and, since they plunge into a wide gorge that spans both Argentina and Brazil, it provides an iconic gateway for crossings between the two countries.

Paul has visited Argentina several times, taking in everything from the mighty Iguazu Falls to the dazzling Perito Merino Glacier. According to him, any country that boasts one of Earth’s most dramatic waterfalls, magnificent salt flats, exquisite wines and a vibrant capital is more than worth a visit.
