Iguazu Falls, Guarani called them Iguassu, or Big Water. They are a collection of 275 waterfalls, across more than two miles between Brazil and Argentina.
Iguazu Falls is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world, and a Unesco World Heritage.
If you have never been to Iguazu Falls, please put this place on your bucket list!
The natural beauty, hundreds of waterfalls and endless rainbows, got us emotional and impressed by this wonder of nature, God’s creation!
We have experienced incredible waterfalls around the globe: in Brazil, Jamaica, Washington State-USA, Iceland, Niagara Falls between Canada and the USA. And of course, the majestic Victoria Falls and longest waterfall in the world, between Zimbabwe and Zambia.
We still have more waterfalls to chase, such as: Angel Falls in Venezuela, the highest waterfall in the world. Yosemite Falls, the highest waterfall in North America, along with a lot of other beautiful waterfalls.
We can proclaim ourselves as official waterfall chasers! haha
If you are planning a trip to Iguazu Falls do not miss the chance to visit:
Parque das Aves: the largest bird park in Latin America, located outside of the falls on the Brazilian side. Here they protect birds from animals and traffic, and help them to reproduce. You will walk inside of a huge cage, and see butterflies, flamingos and other birds, flying all over the place freely.
Experience the Macuco Jetboat safari, a memorable boat trip, that takes you very close to the falls. Be ready to get soaked. You can find this tour on both sides of the falls.
Visit Itapu Dam , It was once the largest Dam project in the world, located on the Brazilian side.
Go on a Helicopter Tour, also from the Brazilian side only, to experience the waterfalls from a bird’s eyes!
How can you get to the Iguazu Falls National Park?
Fly to the Brazilian town Foz de Iguaçu, or Puerto Iguassu, in Argentina.
To get to one side from the other, you can take a bus or a taxi.
To visit the waterfalls on the Brazilian side, you can buy tickets at the entrance of the park, and a bus will take you to the falls.
To visit the waterfalls on the Argentinian side, you also need to buy the tickets at the entrance of the park, and a little train will take you to the falls. To move around inside this park, you need to take the same train.
