#Argentina #travel Iguazu Falls (Argentine Side)

Iguazu falls, Iguassu falls, or Iguaçu falls are the widest waterfalls of the world. (The Portuguese name of the falls is Cataratas do Iguaçu and the Spanish name is Cataratas del Iguazú.) Located in the border of Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay the Iguazu River falls from an upper level to a lower level spanning a 2.7 kilometer width and having 245 (275 according to some sources) individual falls creating an awesome view both from the ground and from the air. Along with Niagara falls and Victoria falls, Iguazu falls is the most spectacular falls of the world awaiting recognition as one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature. The biggest and most spectacular of the Iguazu falls is known as the Devil’s Throat (Garganta do Diabo in Portuguese, Garganta del Diablo in Spanish). The falls are shared by Iguazu National Park (Argentina) and Iguaçu National Park (Brazil). I visited both the Argentine side and the Brazilian side of Iguazu falls on November 27, 2010. This video shows the Argentine side of the falls.
