Puerto Iguazu is the third largest city of the Misiones region (behind Oberá and the capital Posada) it is situated right at the junction of the Parana and Iguazu rivers, where the Iguazu Falls form. Iguazu (“great water” in Guarani language) is famous for these waterfalls, which are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and recognised as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The waterfalls are so large that they cross into three countries; Brasil, Argentina and Paraguay. You can visit from both Iguaçu national park on the brazilian side and Iguazù national park on the argentinian side to really get a grasp of their immensity!
The waterfalls were formed by a giant volcanic eruption some 132 million years ago. This then created geographical fault eroded and moved until it formed 2 giant chasms, one of which you can stand above to view. It is known as the “the Devils Throat”
