A natural masterpiece: Iguazu Falls

Looking at photos of this magnificent natural wonder, leaves me in awe of all the natural beauty in our world.

Iguazu Waterfalls is one of the world’s largest waterfalls. It extends over 2,700 m in a semi-circular shape and is some 80m high. It is situated on a basaltic line spanning the border between Argentina and Brazil. Made up of many cascades producing vast sprays of water, it is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. The falls is surrounded by tropical rainforest with over 2,000 species of vascular plants and is home to the typical wildlife of the region
Iguazú Falls. Called Foz do Iguaçu in Portuguese, and Cataratas del Iguazú in Spanish, this natural wonder is a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site.

It is possible to see the falls and surrounding area in a lightning trip but it is better to plan at least two days. The view from the Brazilian side is the most panoramic and there are helicopter rides out over the falls from Foz do Iguaçu. You may also take boat rides out to the falls. The light is best in the morning for photographs. The best times to see Iguazu Falls are in the spring and fall. Summer is intensely tropically hot and humid, and in winter the water level is considerably lower.
