Spread across the border with Brazil, the awesome Iguazu Falls are one of the continent's must-visit natural wonders.

Twice as wide and a third taller than Niagara, the Iguazu Falls are one of South America's most extraordinary sights. Vast torrents of water thunder over a horseshoe-shaped natural fault in the Iguazu River, bordering Brazil and Argentina amid subtropical rainforest, in which over 2,000 species of plants and hundreds of types of animals thrive. More than two hundred and fifty separate waterfalls are spread out along 1.7 miles of the river, the most famous of which is the awesome Devil's Throat. At 700 metres long and over 80 metres high, it is undoubtedly the epicentre of the action, where visitors are soaked by the constant spray caused by the incomprehensible and unrelenting volume of water which pours over the the side and into the foamy abyss. Here, rainbows regularly form to add the finishing touch to a spectacular show.
