Floriano Fall in Iguazu National Park

Salto Floriano in Iguazu National Park from the Brazilian Side
The most typical stops on any Argentine itinerary are Buenos Aires, Patagonia and the Iguazu Falls. The latter is about 1600 km north of Buenos Aires in the province of Misiones. It is almost impossible to describe the grandeur and might of the falls. You have to see it with your own eyes and hear it with your own ears. Believe me if you die without seeing the Iguazu Falls, you've missed out one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Where is the most incredible place you have ever been?

I've visited the falls (both sides) and the feeling is unique. Breathtaking scenery and fabulous shot too. I took the boat down there, lots of adrenaline and fun! :-)

It is definitely on my wish list! I think it's magnificent, and that's just in pictures!

I didn't know these spectacular falls existed until my daughter did a project on Argentina about 10 years ago. I fell in love with Argentina after that. I'm sorry to say that I don't think most Americans know much about these falls. I suppose they think nothing beats Niagara Falls.

You've got me convinced. It's almost surreal. Magnificent photo!

Outstanding image.

Quite a bit north of BsAs but well worth the photo (and a good one it is). My wife and I were astounded when we say Iguazu. They may not be the highest waterfalls in the world but they are the moth complex. No visitor should go to BsAs without hopping on a flight at Aeroparque and enjoying the falls.

What a great picture! Been there a few times myself, on both sides, and it is one of the more grandiose and uplifting sights on earth. You feel small.

The power of the falling water is really captured well. I'll remember this one.

I didn't see this when I was there. I guess I'll have to go back.

Your photo is wonderful.

Wonderful shot. The power of the water is evident.

Kitty said...

wow, impressive!
It's tough to photograph large scale natural wonders. You did a good job.

This is so beautiful. I can only imagine the noise and the wonder of it all. The most beautiful natural sight I've ever seen is Bryce Canyon in Utah. It's wonderful.

I would love to visit the falls! And Argentina as well. Thanks for giving us a taste!
