Very rarely are there natural wonders in the world brimming with the most awe-inspiring sites that draw people towards them. Iguazu National Park is most certainly one of them. The dense subtropical forests that sprawl across the territories of Brazil house the mighty Iguazu Waterfalls. Considered to be one of the seven wonders of the world, breathtaking might be a gross understatement to describe the view of this natural jewel. The 80-meter (87.48 yards) semi-circular falls are a major feature of interest of the park. The trails and boardwalks inside offer terrific and close views of the cascade. Spread over 550 square kilometers (212 square miles), the primary purpose of the park was to protect the falls. The park is home to the rare Alto Parana Tropical Forests Biome, which makes it, globally, one of the most important conservation forest areas. Hiking and navigating through the Iguazu River is one of the best ways to explore the natural beauty and the vibrant wildlife of the park. 2,000 plant species, including the Palo Rosa and Palmito trees and over 400 bird species have found their homes inside. The unique harpy eagle and broad-snouted caiman are commonplace sightings. Iguazu National Park and its Brazilian counterpart have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The world's largest waterfalls system, Iguazú Falls lie within sight of the point where the countries of Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay meet. Legend has it, a long time ago a deity besotted with a beautiful woman was overcome with wrath when she fled with her lover in a canoe. The deity cut the river to stymie their escape, creating the falls and condemning the lovers to an eternal plunge. The Upper Iguazú River rushes down the steep face of the Devil's Throat, a narrow chasm of sheer rock, tumbling down in a series of cataracts and falls numbering in the hundreds. The tallest of these fall from a height of about 82 meters (269 feet) into the canyon below. A cacophony of rumbles and roars pervades the silence as the river comes crashing down, filling the air with a misty spray sliced by rainbows. A vision of immense beauty, the Iguazú Falls are a majestic display of nature's might; an awe-inspiring sight that attracts thousands to the midst of this monumental curtain of water.
