Return to South America: Iguazu Falls

Art & Architecture, Beach

When a sprinkler can’t beat the heat, try a waterfall.

These 275 falls are concentrated on a little over a mile and half of the Iguazu River, riding the border between Argentina and Brazil. The national park in which it’s located was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and with good reason. Besides water, you’ll find hoards of butterflies and even caymans and jaguars in this jungle.

I entered from Puerto Iguazú in the Argentine province of Misiones, where the majority of the viewing points are located. Brazil is said to have some better panoramas, so if you’re entering from Argentina, beg the officials to let you jump the border for a quick peek. (It’s surprisingly successful.)
