falls at Iguassu are located on the border between Brazil and
Argentina. It is easy to describe this "World Heritage" site. Impressive
and Beautiful ... that's what visitors say of this display
of nature. The thunderous roar of 275 waterfalls plunging down in the gorge some 269
feet (70 meters) below can be heard from miles away.
The falls at the Argentinean side of Iguassu Falls,
together with its counterpart on the Brazilian side are one
of the most famous and visited sites in South America and are a "must see" when
traveling to Argentina. The falls stretch out some 2 miles and can
be reached from both sides for some amazing views.
The Argentinean side provides an intimate touch with the falls. Many
walking trails are paved throughout the reserve, and a train brings
visitors from the gate to the falls themselves. Walking through the
park makes it possible to enjoy the rich flora and the huge amount
of beautiful birds, butterflies (over 500 types in the area) and
other animals. The most impressive fall in the area is called "La
Garganta del Diablo", meaning "the Devil's throat". Those who seek
some excitement can take a speed boat ride along the Devil's canyon
up to the Garganta del Diablo falls.
The Brazilian side of the falls may be less impressive but it
provides beautiful scenery and panoramic views of the Argentinean
