iguazu-fallsSituated in Iguazú National Park, some 20 km from Puerto Iguazú, Iguazu Falls are shared by Brazil and Argentina. 275 falls plunge over a precipice more than a mile and a half wide with an average drop of 300 feet to the Iguazu River below. Every second, 450,000 gallons of water come tumbling down. The Devil’s Throat is the site of the biggest waterfall and the greatest sight Iguazu Falls has to offer. The surrounding subtropical rainforest has over 2,000 species of vascular plants and is home to the typical wildlife of the region: tapirs, giant anteaters, howler monkeys, ocelots, jaguars and caymans.
