Less than two hours’ flight from Buenos Aires is the Iguazu National Park. Home to over 2,000 species of vascular plants; and sanctuary to wildlife such as tapirs, giant anteaters, howler monkeys, ocelots, jaguars and caymans.
At the heart of this park is the UNESCO World Heritage site of Iguazu Falls. Standing 80m high and 2,700m in diameter this semi-circular waterfall spans the border between Argentina and Brazil. With 275 individual drops, these waterfalls have a reputation for being one of the most visually and acoustically stunning natural sites.
Boarding a train to the upper falls circuit delivers the most impressive observation point, The Devil’s Throat. Additionally, with pathways stretching 3km along the Iguazu river canyon via the upper and lower circuit; there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy the abundance of flora and fauna in the area.
For a completely uninterrupted, unlimited experience of Iguazu’s splendour, try a helicopter flip over the falls and river below or feel the exhilaration up close and personal on a boat experience.
