Recognized by many as the most beautiful waterfalls in the world, the Iguassu Falls, which straddles the border between Brazil, and Argentina is a spectacular natural wonder that is shared by the two countries, and is one of the most popular destinations in all of South America. Second only to Niagara Falls in flow, Iguassu is actually 275 individual falls, and can be accessed from many more vantage points than either Niagara or Victoria falls in Africa. Iguassu's unique shape creates spellbinding views with dramatic accessible walkways, that afford visitors unsurpassed panoramic vistas. Although the falls are the main attraction here, the surrounding tropical forests feature stunning varieties of ferns, orchids, begonias, butterflies, exotic birds, and fascinating animal species. Iguaz˙ National Park which encompasses the falls, occupies 212 square miles of tropical forest habitat, and was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984.
