These world famous waterfalls bubble over with superlatives:  70 meters high, 275 different falls, located in a National Park declared Patrimony of Mankind by UNESCO, etc. etc.  For me, it was seeing the coatís (a type of raccoon) up-close that proved to be the highlight.  And the butterflies, of course (more…)

Definitely, I will be back in Misiones some day, preferably in late September/beginning of October, when the wild orchids are in bloom and nature goes wild with color.  And I’ll go to see the waterfalls from the Brazilian side (Foz de Iguazu), since that is where you get the panoramic views, as the falls themselves are on the Argentine side.
