Iguazu Falls Travel Guide
The Iguazu waterfalls are one of the largest and most magnificent in the world. The word Iguazu comes from the native Guarani language which means “great water.” Located on the Iguazu river at the border of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, the majority of the falls are located on the Argentine side and the rest in Brazil. There are two airports in Iguazu, one in Argentina and one in Brazil. There are a total of several hundred individual falls along a 2 mile stretch of cliff and the thunderous roar can be heard from miles away. A real spectacle!
