Niagara doesn’t even come close, and Victoria Falls are quickly forgotten.
Both low and high level walkways thread their way deep into the subtropical rainforest as the thunderous sound of water crashes to the ground, 296 feet from above. Unforgettable panoramic views of more than 270 falls; cliffs and islands scattered in the shape of a horseshoe, and a fragile ecosystem home to some of the world’s most colorful and exotic birds.
I’ve just described Iguazu Falls.
Undoubtedly one of the most naturally spectacular sights in the world, Iguazu Falls is an imposing collection of waterfalls which straddles Brazil and northern Argentina.
The falls at Iguazu are 1.7 miles long, and 30% taller than Niagara, made up of many cascades producing vast sprays of water flowing at up to 450,000 cubic feet (12,750 cubic m) per second.
Words cannot describe the experience of witnessing Iguazu Falls. Magnificent, spectacular, mesmerizing, immense; these all come close, though nothing will prepare you for the unbelievable experience itself.
Nothing I can say will prepare you for what it’s like soaking up the spray of one of the world’s most awe-inspiring natural wonders. You have to be there to truly appreciate it.
Visitors to the falls can view them via boat, boardwalk or helicopter, and with hundreds of falls there are literally thousands of spectacular views.
Here are just 15; hopefully they’re inspiring enough to get you on a plane!
So what are you waiting for?
