IGUAZU FALLS

THE WATERFALLS

Iguazu Falls 
Buenos Aires Argentina Travel The Province of Misiones, located in the center of Mercosur, is privileged by virtue of having more than a hundred waterfalls in an area of only 30,000 square kilometers. These valuable natural resources open up the possibility of economic advantages in terms of tourism and of energy, at the strategic crossroads of important highways linking Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Chile.

There are various areas making up this wonderful nature reserve, and it is in the Cataratas Area that visitors can gaze on the waterfalls of the River Iguazu.

In the course of their visit, travelers will see the following falls: Floriano, Deodoro, Benjamin Constant, Union, Escondido, Mitre, Belgrano, Rivadavia, Tres Mosqueteros, Dos Mosqueteros, San Martin, Adan y Eva, Bozzetti, Ramirez, Chico, Dos Hermanos, Alvar Nuñez, and the Devil's Throat Falls, among others.

These wonders of nature can be visited on foot and/or by boat, with walks above the impressive Falls themselves, which offer an incomparable spectacle.

Beneath the Iguazu Falls 
Buenos Aires Argentina TravelAmong the most noteworthy falls on the Argentine side are the Alvar Nuñez, on the Lower Circuit of the trip round the Park; the Lanusse, also on the Lower Circuit but lower down; and the Dos Hermanas, Chico Alferez, Ramirez and Bossetti, all on the Upper Circuit of the walk, which range in height from 40 to 60 meters.

The Salto Dos Hermanas has a natural pool formed by water action, which is about eight meters deep.

The Chico Alferez and the Bossetti split up in two, making an unforgettable show, and refreshing spectators on the walkways with a cool, damp breeze.

Further up are the Mbigua, Adan y Eva, and San Martin falls; the latter is a fall with a deafening roar, marveling us with its forceful plunge and forming a second fall, lower down, the whole spectacle ending more than 70 meters below, all blanketed under a pervasive spray that at times forms a rainbow, making a delicate contrast with the rest of the view.

Then, a little further up, are the Escondido, Dos Mosqueteros, Rivadavia, Peñon, and Mitre, ending in the prodigious Union fall, whose waters fall avalanche-like into the mighty Devil's Throat, from a height of nearly 80 meters, forming plumes of spray and steam that are sometimes visible from a distance of up to seven kilometers.

The Brazilian sector shares the Union fall, because the dividing line of the waters runs through it, other important falls to see in this area being the Benjamin Constant, Deodoro, Floriano and Santa Maria.

However, the one that takes all the prizes, without a shadow of doubt, is the Devil's Throat, with sides separated as if by a giant spade. The water of this fall, roller-coasting down from its highest point, produces a constant deafening thunder that is choked off in the depths, and then flows out tamely a few kilometers further on in the River Parana.

Its dimensions, together with the volume of the mass of water it carries during the rainy season, place it among the greatest and most spectacular waterfalls in the world: its width alone is four times that of the Niagara Falls in North America.
