Igauzu Falls is one of the most visited places in all of South America. With 275 falls gushing from a 80 km high and 3km wide cliff, it is one of the most breathtaking and dramatic series of waterfalls in the world. The Falls are situated between the borders of Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay. Each side of the falls has its own highlights. The Brazilian side, which is called Iguassu, has some of the best overall views, including the Cataracts of Iguassu, which are set amongst lush rainforests.
