The Falls of Iguaz�
The Iguaz� Falls on the border with Brazil are one of the world's natural wonders.
Lined with dense forests, the Iguaz� river flows into 275 waterfalls, plunging more than 70 meters with a deafening noise. As this huge volume of water reaches the bottom, spray rises, and lots of rainbows are formed in the sky. An incredible variety of fauna and flora completes the perfect setting for the waterfalls within the protection of the Iguaz� National Park.

This is a region of large rivers, humid tropics, red earth, magnificent forest, a virgin forest full of huge trees and extraordinary flora and fauna. Great Waters – “Iguaz�” in the Guaran� language – overflowing into one of the world’s wonders: the Iguaz� Falls.

A scenery of exuberant beauty spreading along the Iguaz� National Park, Saltos del Mocon� (Mocon� Falls), R�o Pilcomayo National Park, El Palmar National Park, Esteros del Iber� (Iber� Swamps) or the Chaco plains.

Apotheosis of Nature, where the Jesuit ruins, declared World Heritage by the UNESCO, are a vivid testimony of the Society of Jesus’ fruitful work.
