As far as natural beauty goes, the Iguazu falls are certainly up there – the sheer size, sounds and its surroundings make it a very mesmerising place. The Iguazu Falls are part of the Iguazu national park, a UNESCO World heritage listed site, located in the Misiones region, in the Northeastern part of Argentina bordering with the Panana region in Brazil. The falls are up to 80 metres tall and span nearly 3 kilometres – the magnitude, size and power of the cascades can only be truly appreciated in person. The lush subtropical rainforest surroundings are host to varied wildlife birds, caymans and monkeys and several thousand plant species.
We went on a speed boat tour and the sprays of water and roaring sounds were unbelievable. There are great hikes as well around the national park. The falls are one of the largest and certainly one of the most amazing waterfalls in the world.
