Flag of Argentina  , Litoral,

Our last day at Iguazu was spent seeing the falls...

The falls are on the border that seperate Argentina and Brasil and can be seen from both sides. The name means big water and legend has it that a god planned to marry a beautiful woman named Naipí, who fled with her mortal lover Tarobá in a canoe. In rage the god sliced the river, creating the waterfalls and condemning the lovers to an eternal fall.

The waterfall system consists of 275 falls along 1.7 miles of the Iguazu River. Some of the individual falls are up to 82 metres in height, though the majority are about 64 metres. The Devil's Throat a U-shaped, 82-meter-high, 150-meter-wide and 700-meter-long cataract, is the most impressive of all and is where we here heading.

The best way to experience the falls is to take a powerboat up river to the devils throat and see it form the bottom.... The boat takes you through falls (not right though as it would demolish the boat) and gets you soaking wet! This was so much fun...

The other way is to walk through the nature park where you can see the many waterfalls from the side and walk out to them on the platforms...

I could write more about this but i think the photographs say it all.... one of the most spectacular things I have ever seen in my life...
