Iguazu Falls is a natural phenomenon best explored from both Argentina and Brazil. There are more than 270 falls in an area where cliffs and islets lie scattered in a half moon shape. From the visitor centre, you can head down trails or ride a picturesque train. There are two basic circuits: an upper path and a lower path. The lower path leads to the base of the falls where the intense crash of the falls releases a thick mist into the air. It is a truly unique experience worth daring to adventure.
The upper path leads to incredible panoramic views of the falls from an extensive footbridge, also an unforgettable experience. The Devils Throat (also know as Garganta del Diablo) is best seen from the Brazilian side. Here fourteen falls drop 350 feet with such force that a 100 foot tall cloud of mist is permanently suspended overhead. Watch for the rainbow. For a close up view, walk through the subtropical forest of Iguassu National Park to the base of Salto Floriano and take the elevator to the top of the falls, or walk out over the falls at Salto Union.
