Iguazú Falls, located on the border of Argentina and Brazil, is the largest waterfall on the planet, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and one of my favourite places on Earth. I visited the Argentinian side of the falls in February 2017 and it was honestly one of the best days of my life; I would love to go back with a better camera, a tripod, and more time to explore this spectacular national park.
TRAILS • LA GARGANTA DEL DIABLO • CHASING RAINBOWS
There are plenty of trails (and even a train!) in the Argentinian side for visitors to enjoy the 275 falls that make up the protected areas of Iguazú (in the Argentinian state of Misiones) and Iguaçú (in the Brazilian state of Paraná).
La Garganta del Diablo
La Garganta del Diablo, or the Devil’s Throat, is the largest and most iconic of the waterfalls of Iguazú. Though located in the Argentinian side, the panoramic view can best appreciated from the Brazilian side (which I didn’t get a chance to visit). But I think the best way to really experience it is on the boats that take you right into the massive Devil’s Throat.
The magic of Iguazú is only amplified by the rainbows that form when the sun comes out, filling the already lush and hypnotic landscapes with candy-coloured prisms.
