The Waterfalls of Iguazu, Brazil and Argentina

A place of beauty and nature is found between two South American nations. Argentina and Brazil share the Iguazu Falls ( in Brazil it is written Foz do Iguaçu). The two countries have a different vantage point of the waterfalls and both are beautiful.

In the Argentinian side, you can see the waterfalls up close and feel the water spraying towards your face. As you walk the trails, you will see the beginning of the waterfalls and all the way down to the river. If you keep walking the trails, you will get to the Devil's Throat. The Devil's Throat is a wonder and it is the closest you will get to the waterfalls.

The Brazilian side has a different feeling because it is a view of the falls from a farther vantage point. As you see the size of all the waterfalls together in a chain you can see the amazing art of nature.

As you walk the park you will notice movements in the bushes and branches, the movements are coatis and monkeys. There are many animals in the park. There are a lot of birds like macaws and toucans, etc. If you would like to see the birds closer, you can go to a park with lots of different species of birds, Parque das Aves, in the Brazilian side.

In the town of Puerto Iguazu, Argentina, you can find artwork for sale made by the Guarani indigenous people. Also, the town is located where the Parana and Iguazu rivers converge creating the triple border between the countries of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.

Iguazu falls are an amazing work of nature and I recommend a trip to this wonderful place to everyone.
