Bordering Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, and spanning two miles along the Iguassu River, Iguassu Falls is one of the world’s most spectacular waterfalls. It is actually made up of more than 250 separate cascades, the most powerful of which is the Devil’s Throat. Each second, this spectacle spews 1,800 cubic metres of water over the rocks into a huge canyon below. The surrounding Iguassu National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a subtropical forest home to many endangered plants and animals. The giant otter and the giant anteater live here, as well as 250 species of butterflies, some of which are as big as your hand.
