WELCOME TO IGUASSU FALLS: MAGIC OF NATURE
Iguazu Falls, located in the border between Argentina and Brazil, is one of the most incredible places in the world.
Numerous islands along the 2.7-kilometre-long (1.7 mi) edge divide the falls into many separate waterfalls and cataracts, varying between 60 to 82 metres (197 to 269 ft) high. The number of these smaller waterfalls fluctuates from 150 to 300, depending on the water level. Approximately half of the river’s flow falls into a long and narrow chasm called the Devil’s Throat (Garganta del Diablo in Spanish) The Devil’s Throat is U-shaped, 82 metres high, 150 m wide, and 700 m long (269×492×2,297 ft). Placenames have been given also to many other smaller falls, such as San Martín Falls, Bossetti Falls, and many others.
In November 11, 2011, Iguassu Falls were chosen one of the World’s Natural Wonders in a global poll organized by the Swiss Foundation New Seven Wonders, an honor shared with other destinations: The Amazon, Ha Long Bay, Jeju Islands, Puerto Princesa Underground River, Indonesia’s Komodo National Park, and the Table Mountain.
In 2013, UNESCO awarded Iguassu National Park once again for its Exceptional Universal Value, being a site of such extraordinary cultural and natural value transcending national borders, a site of value for humanity’s present and future generations.
