Dam Waterfall Must See
At Iguazu Falls, on the border between Argentina and Brazil, experience the raw power of the Iguazu River as it tumbles off the Paraná Plateau into a deep canyon. The river flows over three sides of the canyon, covering a 2.7 km (1.7 mi) stretch of cliffs. Small islands along the plateau edge divide the river into hundreds of separate waterfalls. The tallest plunge for 82 m (269 ft) into the narrow chasm known as Garganta del Diablo, or the Devil's Throat. Walk out onto the lookout point, several feet above the Devil's Throat. The raging torrent throws spray hundreds of feet into the air, so prepare to get wet. To reach the falls, you must pass through a natural park. A train provides rides from the entrance, but the 30 minute walk often takes less time, as it avoids the lines. Keep an eye out for jaguars, toucans, monkeys, butterflies, and more among the lush scenery.

    No better than the Brazilian side, or worse. Each has its own peculiarities and are amazing. The Brazilian side is more visual, but there is contact with the waters. It is also much more structured, signaled and care. The Argentine side is more, you're practically along the falls and can, if you want to have an experience of more contact. The structure is well below, but the enchantment is not behind the sense by the Brazilian side. There are buses from the bus station of Puerto Iguazu they let you in the Park.

There are to tour of safari 4 x 4 in the middle of the jungle and also to that of the barge, where subis and pass below the falls, highly recommended.

    We are real nature fans, also sure falls.. seen a lot in America, Australia, New Zealand but these waterfalls are really on number 1!! What mega beautiful!! Can write down a lot of words but you should go see it yourself. Both sides seen, Argentina and Brazil. Argentina is your more in and on the water fall what we personally beautiful. Gem to the last saved: Del Diablo. Big WoW!! And Brazil gives more the scenic view which is also very beautiful! Definitely go see, you get zero regret and a nice reminder that you will not forget!
