Sunk in lush rainforest, the Iguazú Falls are located at the border of the province of Misiones in Argentina and the Brazilian state of Paraná, and there is actually a point nearby that marks the border of Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay. Taken together, it is the largest waterfall in the world. Over thirty metres taller and a whopping 1,755 metres wider than Niagra Falls, it’s little wonder that, upon seeing Iguazú Falls for the first time, Eleanor Roosevelt famously uttered “My poor Niagra.” And not to be mean about it, but these falls also boast 275 drops compared to Niagra’s four. Ouch.
