These photos were not taken this time I came to Brazil, but as I was perusing among my pictures, I saw this series of shots I had taken one of the last times here and wondered why I hadn’t published them already.
Iguazu waterfalls, covering the border between three states, Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, are spectacular. The cities of the three states from which you can have access to the falls are Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil, Puerto Iguazu in Argentina and Ciudad del Este in Paraguay. I’ve only been to the Brazilian and Argentinian sides, which are known for the best views.
The world’s largest waterfalls, Iguazu comprises of many falls as the Iguazu River flows into the Upper Paraná River on the Paraná Plateau thundering down for almost 300 mt. Their grandeur given by the massive water amount constantly flowing and roaring leaves visitors overwhelmed, and was the reason behind Eleanor Roosevelt’s famous quote: “Poor Niagara”.
In no way words can describe these falls’ power and magnificence, barely pictures can show a little bit of this natural wonder, but only going and seeing by yourself will do real justice to it.
I hope my photos will inspire you to journey around these beautiful natural sights.
