Northeast Argentina holidays
The Iguazú Falls are arguably South America's most spectacular, a series of 275 tumbling cascades which plummet into the turbulent waters of the Iguazú River on the border of Argentina and Brazil.
The Iguazú National Park in Argentina, of which the Iguazú Falls are the central feature, is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It's home to around 430 bird species and 70 species of mammals, including capuchin monkey and - though rarely seen - jaguar. The park rings to a cacophony of calls and songs and the distant thunder of the falls.
South of the park is a large expanse of marshy wetlands, known as the Ibera Wetlands. Stretching over 5,200 square miles of rivers, marshes, clear-water lagoons floating islands known as embalsados, the wetlands are an ecological hotspot and, like the Iguazú National Park, are home to hundreds of bird species.

Where to go in Iguazu Falls & the Northeast
The Iberá Wetlands covers an area of 5,200 square miles. Distinct for its thick and fertile marshes, sleepy waterways and clear water lagoons, it's a world away from the pounding rush of the Iguazú Falls to the north.
