Description

The Iguassu Falls are an unforgettable spectacle being one of the largest group of falls in the world. They are located on the border between Argentina and Brazil, and the city of Foz do Iguassu borders with Paraguay. 

Iguassu Falls is the international name of the falls, however is is referred locally as Iguazu Falls (Spanish) and Iguaca Falls (Portuguese). The falls are located on the border of Brazil and Argentina and not far from Paraguay.

The majority of people note that the Iguassu Falls system is comprised of 275 independent falls over 1.67 miles (2.7 km), however there are some locals who argue that there are approximately 75 separate falls. The difference is accounted for by where you count the breaks in water both vertically and horizontally. At one spot, visitors can be surrounded by 260 degrees of waterfalls. Although the highest part of the falls measures 269 feet (82 m), the majority of the falls are around 210 feet (64 m).

Devil's Throat, Garganta del Diablo, which is the U-shaped start of the falls is often considered the most impressive part. Devil's Throat is the highest point of the falls measuring 269 feet (82 m) high, 492.1 feet (150 m) wide and 2,296 feet (700 m) long.

Iguassu Falls is wider than Victoria Falls, however because it is split into numerous distinct individual falls over 1.67 miles (2.7 km), Victoria Falls has the claim to the largest single curtain of falling water.
