Truly one of the most spectacular sites that nature has to offer, the scale of Iguassu falls has to be seen to be believed, with 275 falls cascading over almost three kilometres of the Parana river.
The spectacle is made all the more impressive by the setting; the lush tropical rainforests on the border between Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay.
The waterfalls can be explored in all their glory with many different walkways around and over the cascades. There are also boat trips up to the falls themselves and, for the more adventurous, helicopter trips over the site.
