In Argentina’s Northeastern tip, bordering Brazil, you’ll find an incredible 80-metre-high waterfall that measures 2,800 metres across its cascading drop-offs.
Listed as a UNESCO world heritage site in 1984, Iguazú Falls is truly an astonishing site to behold. Aptly named “great water”, the clouds of spray soak the tropical rainforest below and create a heavenly humid micro-climate where a plethora of flora and fauna thrive.
Walk the upper and lower circuits, coming face to face with the thundering falls, and ride the green train through the tropical jungle to The Devil's Throat, on the lookout for languid crocodiles and turtles cruising the waters below. Prefer to be on the water? Take a speed boat trip along the river below to get right underneath the immense walls of water, or take a helicopter flight and see it all unfold from the air.
It's not all water here, though; the lush tropical jungle sustained by the falls is home to howler monkeys, tapirs, ocelots, caymans and even jaguars. A thrilling 4x4 jungle safari can take you there.
