Iguazu Falls Pictures

Enjoy these Iguazu Falls pictures taken in Feb of 2006. Iguazu Falls are located on the northern border of Argentina and Brazil. They are located in Iguazu National Park which is a semi tropical jungle and one of the fastest growing forests in the world.

The waterfall system consists of almost 300 falls, with heights of up to 70 meters, along 2.7 kilometres of the Iguassu River. The Garganta del Diablo (“Devil’s Throat”) is the most impressive of them all, and marks the border between Argentina and Brazil. Most of the falls are within Argentine territory, but from the Brazilian side a more panoramic view of the Garganta del Diable is obtained.

The Falls are shared by the Iguazú National Park (Argentina) and Iguaçu National Park (Brazil).

The name Iguassu comes from the Guarani words y (water) and guasu (big). The legend says that a god pretended to marry a beautiful aborigine named Naipú, who fled with her mortal lover in a canoe. In rage, the god sliced the river creating the waterfalls, condemning the lovers to an eternal fall.
