Staring into the Devil's Throat - Discovering Iguazu Falls

At the throat of the devil, it's not difficult to feel small.  The air shimmers with iridescent droplets, shakes as tonne upon tonne of roaring water empties itself into the cavern below.  As thick spray sticks hair to scalp and soaks clothes to skin, the force of this natural wonder is rendered vaguely terrifying and, at the same time, leaves the viewer completely exhilarated.

Iguazu Falls is its own creature, a series of waterfalls collected on the borders between Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay, fed by the Iguazu River. With an average of 1,500 cubic metres per second rushing over the Paraná Plateau, it is one of the most dynamic and awe inspiring sights in all of South America.  No surprise, then, that it has been named one of the natural wonders of the world.  As for the Devil's Throat, a churning mass of water and spray, not much compares to the chance to peer into its depths.

Two full days are required to get the most out of the falls, one on the Brazilian side and one on the Argentinian.  The two national parks, both UNESCO World Heritage sites, are easily accessed from either side of the border, and offer two unique perspectives on an extraordinary show.
