Over 2000 species of flowers

Iguazu National Park is located within a rainforest, about 800meters above sea level, and is South America's second largest biodiversity reserve, although it's only 35% of what it was 100 years ago due to rampant development. There are over 2000 species of flowers, 150 plants per hectare, 400 species of birds, and a huge variety of mammals, reptiles, and insects. The remaining areas are like green islands, stretched between farms, plantations, pine forests, trails, and ever-expanding cities.

Within the great forest there is an innumerable amount of tourist attractions for all tastes. The Iguazu Falls are just one of many natural wonders that you can't stop visiting. During this visit, something which we do every year since my brother lives in Posadas, we decided to collaborate with a film crew and, as you can see in the photos, we got some great shots of how the view changes as you move around the falls...the clouds of mist provoked by the pounding water, the ebb and flow of the vegetation around the water...I hope you like my walk around the falls' turbulent waters, and I'll be waiting for you here if you want to join!

Magical combination of flora and fauna

I took these photos from the Iguazu viewpoint in the early evening. You can see the sheer force of the water crashing against the rocks and the amazing clouds of refreshing mist it creates. Iguazu Falls is an amazing place and a magical combination of flora and fauna. You can't miss's one of the most important nature reserves on the planet. I recommend it 100%!

Full of life, sound, and energy

It's a wonderful place full of greens of every share, and it's an ideal place to relax and let go of stress. You can feel the energy of the water in your body and it's good for the spirit!

You can see the falls from anywhere in the surrounding jungle. The sound of the falling water is like a symphony that floods your senses. When you arrive at the viewpoint next to the Bosetti falls, it's customary to take a pause and make a wish....but everyone always wishes the same come back to this paradise, this wonderful place full of live, sound, and energy.

This place was made to make you feel alive!

Photo on watter

An amazing spectacle of the waters, when the rains are more intense the volume of water makes it even more beautiful, making the falls beautiful and intense. It is worth getting a little wet to enjoy these falls. The force of water is so great that it causes a mist that makes you totally wet. The tour of the falls has many surprises and one of them was the contact with nature. In this very different picture of tour when a butterfly landed on the hand of my companion and it remained as if to give welcome. It was very different and I had to portray it.

Iguazu butterflies

What I liked about Iguazú is the animal life. A great example of this is the butterflies you can take pictures of! The contrast of landscapes along Argentina is perfectly clear to get to Iguazu. They're all just boundless and green, it's a real jungle! There are some small motor boats that take you to the bottom of the falls and spend less, quite an experience. Also you can rent a helicopter over the falls.

Must see

If you are by the vast country of Argentina, this is a must-see type of place. Here, you can enjoy nature and the cultural environment among its inhabitants -the Guarani, which have a rich history. The area is quite enough, Puerto Iguazu is a nice city. I really enjoyed its gastronomy, its places, people and its color, but what most impressed me is the belief that people have and the need to live with the Nature. Definitely a place to return.

I spent 24 hours of visiting the most beautiful waterfalls in the world, in shirtsleeves, to be warm to the eyebrows in Calafate. Contrasts are offering a country the size of Argentina. The first afternoon spent visiting the Brazilian side offers beautiful views of waterfalls and a good view of the Devil's Throat, the largest jump rushing water. The next day I visited the Argentinian side and after visiting the famous gorge, where the water is vaporized and you wet, I was doing different trails to explore the vastness of this natural wonder. Worth the walk between coatis, armadillos, toucans, and other birds, among the dense vegetation. If you pick up a sunny day like me, everything becomes very rewarding. The counterpoint in the pictures maybe is not appreciated is that the torrent was minimal and dams that supply water to the falls were closed for lack of rain.


En 24 horas pasé de estar visitando las cataratas mas maravillosas del mundo, en mangas de camisa, a estar abrigado hasta las cejas en el Calafate. Son los contrastes que ofrece un país de las dimensiones de Argentina.

La primera tarde la dediqué a visitar el lado brasileño que ofrece bonitas perspectivas de los saltos de agua y una buena panorámica de la garganta del diablo, el salto con mayor torrente de agua. Al día siguiente visité el lado argentino y tras visitar la famosa garganta, donde el agua se vaporiza y te moja, estuve haciendo diferentes senderos para visitar la inmensidad de esta maravilla natural.

Vale la pena caminar entre coatíes, armadillos, tucanes, y otras aves, entre la espesura de la vegetación. Si encima te coge un día soleado como a mí, todo se hace muy gratificante. El contrapunto, que en las fotos a lo mejor no se aprecia, es que el torrente era mínimo y las presas que surten a las cataratas de agua estaban cerradas por la escasez de lluvias.

Explosion of nature in iguazu

The falls are located on the border between Brazil and Argentina, so it can be reached by a flight of about two hours from Rio.Le falls are made up of hundreds of jumps that are thrown out loud from a height of 80 meters for about 3 km wide. Here were some scenes of the film Mission, and that the tour guides, these falls are more extensive than Victoria and higher than Niagara, which in comparison appear calm. And 'the most beautiful things you can see. We visited the Brazilian side in the afternoon, but the morning also the ride from the Argentine side with a visit to the majestic waterfall Devil's Throat. You walk along an easy path along the way encountering colorful butterflies or those big yellow and blue iguanas and especially a series of small families of rodents tastano the ground and the backpacks of tourists, with their pretty face stretched, accompanying hand in hand in descent to the falls. The most extreme point of observation consists of a wooden walkway, which animated and full of tourists armed with every contraption photo, you can observe the Garganta do Diablo, a huge wall of water, with the inevitable rainbow. But to really enjoy the tumult and the taste of water, you do have to visit the Falls from below, to do this you just need to rely on one of those boats through the rapids and developments at the water, will take you right below, a 'exhilarating experience! My photographs do not do justice to this show ... Have a nice trip

Esplosione della natura a iguazu

Le cascate si trovano al confine tra il Brasile e l'Argentina, per cui si raggiungono con un volo di circa due ore da Rio.Le cascate sono composte da centinaia di salti che si gettano fragorosamente da un'altezza di 80 metri per circa 3 km di ampiezza.
Qui vennero girate alcune scene del film Mission, e a detta delle guide turistiche, queste cascate sono più ampie di quelle Vittoria e più alte di quelle del Niagara, che al confronto appaiono tranquille.
E' quanto di più bello si possa vedere. Noi abbiamo visitato il lato brasiliano il pomeriggio, ma il mattino anche il giro dal lato argentino con la visita alla maestosa cascata GARGANTA DEL DIABLO.
Si cammina lungo un facile sentiero incontrando lungo il percorso farfalle coloratissime gialle o quelle grandi e blu, iguane e soprattutto una serie di famigliole di roditori che tastano il terreno e gli zainetti dei turisti, con il loro bel musetto allungato, accompagnandovi mano a mano nella discesa verso le cascate.
Il punto di osservazione più estremo è costituito da una passerella in legno, che ricca di turisti animati e armati di ogni aggeggio fotografico, permette di osservare la Garganta do Diablo, una parete d'acqua immensa, con l'immancabile arcobaleno.
Ma per assaporare davvero il tumulto e il sapore dell'acqua, dovete per forza visitare le cascate dal basso; per farlo non vi resta che affidarvi ad uno di quei motoscafi che attraverso le rapide e le evoluzioni a pelo d'acqua, vi porterà proprio sotto; un 'esperienza esaltante!
Le mie fotografie non rendono giustizia a tale spettacolo...Buon viaggio

The trail along the iguazu waterfalls...

The trail along the Iguazu Waterfalls offers the best opportunity to fully enjoy this spectacle of nature. Is accessed from the Visitor Center, where you pay the entrance fee of 30 real, which includes access to the park and use of the shuttle. From here, with the sightseeing bus, get off at the first stop, from where the falls still do not appear. The trail begins here, with a rapid descent into the river where if by magic, you find yourself in front of the first unforgettable view: A long canyon where rushes, bombastic, a body of water striking. It is not a single cascade, but numerous jumps close to one another, but completely different, which precipitate in the river Parana. The path continues, nestled in the jungle, over a mile along the edge of the canyon, getting in front of the falls, until you reach the most spectacular point: Jumping Floriano. Here a walkway reaches the point where the water falls into the highest point, but to enjoy the most spectacular view, you take an elevator that goes up to a stunning roof terrace, where the view extends to the Argentinean side.

Il trail lungo le cascate dell'Iguazu offre la miglior possibilità per ammirare interamente questo spettacolo della natura.
Si accede dal Visitor Center, dove si paga la tassa di ingresso di 30 real, che comprende l'accesso al parco e l'utilizzo della navetta.
Da qui, con il bus panoramico, si scende alla prima fermata, da dove le cascate ancora non appaiono. Il sentiero inizia qui, con una rapida discesa verso il fiume dove per incanto, ci si trova di fronte alla prima vista indimenticabile: Un lungo canyon da dove precipita, roboante, una massa d'acqua impressionante. Non si tratta di un'unica cascata, ma di numerosi salti vicini l'uno all'altro, ma completamente differenti, che precipitano nel fiume Parana. Il sentiero procede, immerso nella giungla, per oltre un chilometro lungo il bordo del canyon, sempre di fronte alle cascate, fino a raggiungere il punto più spettacolare: Il salto Floriano. Qui una passerella raggiunge il punto dove l'acqua precipita nel punto più alto, ma per ammirare la vista più spettacolare, si prende un ascensore che sale ad una terrazza panoramica sbalorditiva, dove la vista spazia fino al versante argentino.

The largest waterfalls in the world

Iguazu Falls (or Iguaçu in Portuguese) are the largest waterfalls in the world. They are on the border of Argentina and Brazil. On one side is called Iguazu National Park in the province of Misiones and the Brazilian side Iguazu National Park in the Brazilian province of Parana. Its name comes from two words in the indigenous language of the area, the Guaraní, and are guasu iii and meaning "water" and "large". Inside the forest park where you can see many animals such as alligators, coati and even if you're lucky a toucan! Cataracts are 275 jumps up to 70 meters high, with the Devil's Throat larger. You can make boat rides on the river Iguazu to below some jumps. Cataracts for full view is recommended to have two days. One for the upper walkway, above the falls on the Argentine side and one for the lower walkway located on the Brazilian side of them aside. In 1984 the falls were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. A few kms. it is the triple border between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. Near the falls is the confluence of the Iguazu and Parana rivers. The giant falls were discovered by a Spanish expedition with Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca as he marched forward from the island of Santa Catarina to Asuncion in Paraguay to the early sixteenth century. These waterfalls along the Niagara (on the border between the U.S. and Canada) and Victoria (on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe) are the largest in the world.

Las cataratas mas grandes del mundo

Las cataratas de Iguazú (o Iguaçu en portugués) son las cataratas mas grandes del mundo. Se encuentran en la frontera de Argentina y Brasil. A un lado se llama Parque Nacional de Iguazú de la provincia de Misiones y en el lado brasileiro Parque Nacional do Iguaçu en la provincia brasileña de Paraná. Su nombre proviene de dos palabras del idioma indígena de la zona, el Guaraní, y son iii y guasu que significan "agua" y "grande".
Dentro de la selva donde se encuentra el parque se pueden ver muchos animales tales como el yacaré,el coatí y hasta si se tiene suerte un tucán!
Las cataratas las forman 275 saltos de hasta 70 metros de altura, siendo la Garganta del Diablo la de mayores dimensiones. Es posible hacer paseos en lancha por el río Iguazú hasta debajo algunos saltos. Las cataratas para ser vistas al completo es recomendable tener dos días. Uno para la pasarela superior, encima de las cataratas en el lado argentino y otro para la pasarela inferior que se encuentra en el lado brasileño a un lado de ellas. En 1984 las cataratas fueron declaradas Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la UNESCO. A pocos kms. de ella se encuentra la triple frontera entre Argentina, Brasil y Paraguay. Cerca de las cataratas esta la confluencia de los ríos Iguazú y Paraná.
Las gigantescas cataratas fueron descubiertas por una expedición española con Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca al frente mientras marchaba desde la isla de Sta. Catarina hacia Asunción del Paraguay a principios del siglo XVI.
Estas cataratas junto con las de Niagara (en la frontera entre EEUU y Canadá) y las de Victoria (en la frontera entre Zambia y Zimbabue)son las más importantes del mundo.

The largest complex of waterfalls in the world

Iguazu Falls The largest complex of waterfalls in the world, with a total of 275 jumps. The Iguazu River is a tributary of the Rio Parana, at the junction of the two rivers meet three borders, Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. At this point there is a lookout called Mirador and the Three Borders Landmark possibly no other place in the world where you can see the convergence of three borders. In this place there is a monument with the colors of the flags of the three countries. From Bridge Tancredo Nieves linking Argentina with Brazil spectacular views of both sides of the falls, best views from the Argentine side are contemplated as can be seen from the front part of Brazil. The entire environment is surrounded by jungle vegetation forming part of the Iguassu National Park with a rich fauna of over 400 species. And incredible flora of over 2000 species, some endemic to the park. Orchids grow everywhere, gigantic trees, colonies of large spectacular butterflies, exotic birds, parrots, toucans, etc.. there are also cats, ocelots and tigers. Access to the falls is through the Park. You can go to the foot of some of the falls through a system of walkways very well laid wood. One of the tallest jumps 82 meters, is the Devil's Jump, jump "Twins". An interesting adventure is offered "Macuco Safari". With few jeeps part of the forest is crossed to reach the river bank to trace it with zodiacs boats to the same drapeability cataract is impressive despite the adrenaline rush is worth, it is a fantastic experience. There is also a helicopter service that allows flying around the Park to put themselves above the falls can when seen from aerial perspective, is sensational. I stayed at the Hotel Das Cataratas on the Brazilian side., Within the park and very close to the falls. It is also a good experience to hear at night the noise of night birds mingled with the roar of the falls.''

El mayor complejo de cataratas del mundo


El mayor complejo de cataratas del mundo, con un total de 275 saltos.

El Rio Iguazú es afluente del Rio Paraná, en el punto de unión de ambos ríos se encuentran tres fronteras, Brasil, Argentina y Paraguay. En este punto hay un mirador y se le llama Mirador del Hito de las Tres Fronteras, posiblemente no hay otro lugar en el mundo donde se pueda ver la convergencia de tres fronteras. En este lugar hay un monumento con los colores de las banderas de los tres países.

Desde el Puente Tancredo Nieves que une Argentina con Brasil se contemplan unas espectaculares vistas de ambos lados de las cataratas, mejores vistas desde el lado argentino puesto que se puede observar de frente la parte de Brasil.

Todo el entorno está rodeado de un marco de vegetación selvática conformando el Parque Nacional del Iguazú con una rica fauna de más de 400 especies. Y una increíble flora de más de 2000 especies, algunas endémicas del parque. Orquídeas que crecen por doquier, gigantescos árboles, colonias de espectaculares mariposas de gran tamaño, aves exóticas, loros, tucanes, etc. también hay felinos, ocelotes y tigres.

El acceso a las Cataratas es a través del Parque. Se puede ir al pié mismo de algunas de las cataratas gracias a un sistema de pasarelas de madera muy bien trazadas.

Uno de los saltos de mayor altura, 82 metros, es el Salto del Diablo, el salto de “los Gemelos”.

Una interesante aventura es la que ofrece “Macuco Safari”. Con unos jeeps se atraviesa una parte de la selva hasta llegar a la orilla del río para remontarlo con lanchas zodiacs hasta el mismo cayente de la catarata, es impresionante a pesar del subidón de adrenalina vale la pena, es una experiencia fantástica.

También hay un servicio de helicóptero que permite sobrevolar todo el Parque hasta ponerte encima mismos de las cataratas pudiéndolas contemplar desde la perspectiva aérea, es sensacional.

Me alojé en el Hotel Das Cataratas en la parte de Brasil., dentro del Parque y muy cerca de las cataratas. Es también una buena experiencia oír por la noche el ruido de las aves nocturnas mezclado con el rugir de las cataratas.

Although the gigantic waterfalls of i...

Although the gigantic waterfalls of Iguazú are more than three-quarters on the Argentine side of Iguazú River. But precisely for this reason you have the best overview of the Brazilian side. In Parque Nacional do Iguacu you walk through the tropical rain forest with a fantastic view of all 275 waterfalls simultaneously. Many viewing platforms open up a the best view of the largest waterfalls in the world - a better look at you get nowhere! One can go on right up close to the waterfalls webs here, as on the Argentine side. From Salto Santa Maria has the best view of the monstrous Garganta del Diablo. This Naturschnheit verschlgt a language! Due to time constraints as well as financial reasons we saved on a helicopter flight over the waterfalls. This is possible only on the Brazilian side, as the Argentines do not offer it from Naturschutzgrnden. Very laudable, because they want to protect the park with its flora and fauna and therefore put a no noisy helicopters.

Zwar liegen die gigantischen Wasserfälle von Iguazú mit mehr als Dreiviertel auf der argentinischen Seite des Iguazú-Flusses. Doch genau aus diesem Grund hat man den besten Überblick von der brasilianischen Seite. Im Parque Nacional do Iguacu wandert man durch den tropischen Regenwald mit einem phantastischen Blick auf alle 275 Wasserfälle gleichzeitig. Viele Aussichtsplattformen eröffnen einem die besten Sicht auf die größten Wasserfälle der Welt - einen besseren Blick auf bekommt man nirgends!
Man kann auch hier – wie auf der argentinischen Seite – hautnah auf Stegen an die Wasserfälle herangehen. Vom Salto Santa Maria hat man den besten Blick auf den monströsen Garganta del Diablo. Diese Naturschönheit verschlägt einem die Sprache!
Aus zeitlichen wie auch finanziellen Gründen sparten wir an einem Helikopter-Rundflug über die Wasserfälle. Dieser ist nur von der brasilianischen Seite aus möglich, da die Argentinier es aus Naturschutzgründen nicht anbieten. Sehr lobenswert, denn sie wollen den Park mit seiner Flora und Fauna schützen und setzen deswegen keine lauten Helis ein.
