The Iguazú Falls are easily one of the world's most impressive waterfalls. Situated in the Iguazú National Park in the far north of Argentina, the falls line a cramped horseshoe chasm that stretches for over a mile-and-a-half.
Garganta del Diablo - the Devil's Throat - is the biggest and most spectacular of the 275 falls that together comprise Iguazú Falls, and here the water plummets 80 metres from lip to floor. Walkways lead right up the crest of the falls, as the water transforms from icy calm to explosive - a deep thunder echoes and a thick mist billows skywards creating rainbows as it converses with the sunlight.
The surrounding area supports some intriguing flora and fauna, too. Flocks of parrots, toucans and colourful butterflies often appear out of the mist, thriving in the lively scenery and rich ecosystem of South America's largest waterfall.
