Iguazu Falls, located in the “Triple Frontier” region of Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay, is the tallest and widest waterfall in the world, with 275 cascades spread over nearly 2 miles of the Iguazu River. The Iguazu Falls, also known as the Iguaçu Falls or Cataratas do Iguaçu, are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and together they form the world’s largest waterfall.
A volcanic eruption is to blame for the South American sighting, which is surrounded by the region’s distinctive tropical vegetation. The Guaran word for “great water” is the name of this place. San Martin, Bossetti, Bernabe Mendez, and the Devil’s Throat (Gargantua del Diablo) are some of the most well-known falls in the country. Puerto Iguazu in Argentina and Foz de Iguazu in Brazil are just 16 and 18 miles away from this famous tourist attraction.
