Iguazu Falls

When a volcanic eruption created a massive crack in the earth, the world’s largest waterfall was formed. There are more than 275 falls and a beautiful rainbow that forms across the waterfalls as the light goes through the mists of its thundering waters. The most scenic section is “Devil’s Throat” a curved section shaped like a horseshoe with more than 14 waterfalls that drop over 350 feet. It is surrounded by subtropical rainforests and you will need at least a day to explore the hiking trails and experience the boat rides that take you under the smaller falls. In 1944, when Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady of the United States, visited South America and compared Iguazu Falls to the famous waterfalls on the United States and Canadian border, she exclaimed, “My poor Niagara!”
