The Iguazú Waterfalls, on the border of the Argentine province of Misiones and the Brazilian state of Paraná, together, is the largest waterfall in the world.
The semicircular Falls are said to divide The Iguazu River into the upper and lower Iguazu River.
The Iguazu Falls are said to be 2700meters (1.7 miles) wide. And their height varies between 60 meters (200 feet) and 82 meters (or 269 feet). These dimensions make the Iguazu Falls taller than Niagara Falls and twice as wide.
But regardless of the dimension, the Niagara Falls is the world’s most famous, and Victoria Falls are surely the world’s largest. However, the Iguazú Falls are said to be the most impressive and exquisite waterfalls.
The Falls comprises over 2,000 plant species, 400 species of birds, countless invertebrate species, and as many as 80 mammals, including, anteaters, ocelots, monkeys, jaguars, and tapirs. The falls are also said to be home to animals that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
Iguazú Waterfalls attract more than a million tourists each year.
