DETAILS

If you come to Posadas you must visit the Iguazu Falls, one of the most frequented tourist sites in Argentina, where you can enjoy an awe-inspiring view of nature. The Iguazu Falls (which means “great waters” in the Guarani language) are waterfalls of the Iguazu River on the border between Argentina and Brazil. The Iguazu Falls are made up of a system of 275 waterfalls or cataracts, with the exact number depending on the season. It spans an area 2.7 kilometers wide. The tallest of these waterfalls, called the Devil’s Throat, drops by more than 80 meters into a milky abyss that creates a permanent cloud of mist. To put it in perspective, Iguazu Falls is nearly twice as tall as Niagara Falls and rivaled only by Zambia and Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls, which is taller at 108 meters. In 1984, Iguazu Falls became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and in 2011 it was selected as one of the winners of the New Seven Wonders of Nature competition. The Iguazu Falls are located within one of the few remaining inland rainforests in South America, the Atlantic rainforest, which has been wisely preserved by both Argentina and Brazil. The lush, subtropical national parks surrounding it are teeming with wildlife. This is a haven for more than 2,000 plant species, about 400 bird species, 80 types of mammals and countless insects and invertebrate species.

Iguazu Falls may be the most popular waterfalls in Argentina, but Mocona Falls take the crown for the most unique.
