Widely regarded as the world’s most impressive waterfall, and one of the world’s greatest natural wonders, Iguazu/Iguacu is on the border of Argentina (Iguazu side) and Brazil (Iguacu side).

The clouds of spray produced by the waterfall are conducive to the growth of lush vegetation.

The surrounding area is home to many rare and endangered species of flora and fauna, among them the giant otter and the giant anteater.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.

They are taller than Niagara Falls, and twice as wide. The falls boundaries with what is call Iguacu Falls in Brazil. It is one of the world’s largest and most impressive waterfalls, extending over some 2,700 m. It is well worth spending a day on each side of the falls, especially if you plan to do any of the boat rides or other activities offered. Whilst the majority of the falls are in Argentina, a better overview is had from the Brazilian side.
