Iguazu Falls National Park reopened to visitors on Saturday, after nearly 100 days of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The park will be open only to residents of Puerto Iguazu whose numbers will be regulated, while the Brazilian portion of the falls remains closed.

Locals appeared elated at the opportunity to visit, snapping selfies in front of the falls and photographing the park’s wildlife.

“The truth is that the distance, the use of face masks is being respected a lot, people look happy, all the people of Iguazu, so very well,” said Vanina Ramirez, a visitor.

Forming a natural border between Argentina and Brazil, the falls span 2700 metres (8,860 feet) wide and are an UNESCO World Heritage site. The landmark attracts more than 1.6 million visitors per year.
