Iguazú Falls

Brazil says Iguaçu, Argentina says Iguazú. Thankfully they haven’t called the whole thing off, and the mighty Iguazú Falls soaks the border in a continuous, enormous torrent of water. Depending on the water levels, some 250-odd falls cascade over a ridge that’s several kilometres in length.

We saw the falls from both countries. Both were spectacular. Coming from Rio, it was also our first chance to encounter some wildlife – the forest around the falls is home to all kinds of fauna, from cute and curious coatis to a wide range of insects and lizards.

Of course, the falls are the biggest attraction. And they didn’t disappoint one bit.
