One of the most awesome of the world's natural wonders, Iguazu Falls is an experience of a lifetime. Located primarily in Argentina, the falls are in a semi-tropical jungle ecosystem. These majestically powerful cascades are considerably higher and much wider than Niagara Falls. The falls are actually hundreds of individual falls that continue from Argentina into Brazil for over two miles; the number of falls vary with the time of year, but they number in the hundreds! Both Argentina and Brazil have created national parks to protect and preserve the gamut of the falls and surrounding area.
