There are 3 falls that are truly great natural wonders. They include the highest falls on earth (Victoria in Zimbabwe, Africa), falls with the greatest water volume (Niagara in the U.S./Canada), and the widest (Iguazu on the border of Argentina & Brazil. This falls is actually 287 separate falls, only 17 of which have been named. The views are entirely different from each country's access. In Brazil, you approach them from above via elevator and have the ability to walk out on giant bridge patios to experience the spray and magnitude of its power. On the Argentine side, you can walk trails, metal causeways and bridges to also reach near the middle of the maelstrom below these falls as well as view them from different levels based on the trails you hike. Access is via a narrow gauge railroad after busing into the entrance center. While there you have the opportunity to take a ride on zodiac boats driven by high powered outboard motors until you are virtually under the falls having a torrent of water and spray douse you. Be sure to pack a poncho or you will surely think you were in a shower stall and be drenched. The boat crew will provide individual rubber pouches so that you can keep cameras, wallets and other personal items dry. You will be informed as when to close them up tight after taking some pix. This ride is a must; don't miss it. Enjoy! Also don't miss the coatimundi, a member of the raccoom family.
