Iguazu Falls was short-listed as a candidate to be one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature.


Iguazù Falls.

The waterfall system consists of 275 falls along 2.7 kilometers (1.67 miles) of the Iguazu River.



Position is at latitude (DMS): 25° 40' 60 S, longitude (DMS): 54° 25' 60 W .



Some of the individual falls are up to 82 meters (269 ft) in height, though the majority are about 64 metres (210 ft).

The Devil's Throat.

The Devil's Throat (Garganta del Diablo in Spanish or Garganta do Diabo in Portuguese), a U-shaped, 82-meter-high, 150-meter-wide and 700-meter-long (490 by 2300 feet) cataract, is the most impressive of all, and marks the border between Argentina and Brazil.



Two thirds of the falls are within Argentine territory.

  1. National Park Iguazu is one of the most beautiful natural scenes I have never seen in my life. It is the creation in earth sill alive. I love it. Magnificent, immense, unique.
    The Argentinian side is really awesome. We could walk through the falls, water around us all over the place.... incredible. I am sure there are just a couple of things in earth which can be comparable with this natural landscape.
