Atlantic Forest

Iguazu Falls

National Park

Overview

The Iguaçu National Park in Brazil and the Iguazú National Park in Argentina, both inscribed on the World Heritage List, constitute one of the most significant remnants of the Interior Atlantic Forest. The waterfall is almost three kilometres wide and consists of 150 / 300 separate falls (depending on the water level) dividing the Iguazu River in two levels and creating an amazing spectacle of the Nature! For most of its course, the Iguazu River flows through Brazil, however, most of the falls are on the Argentine side.

The permanent spray from the cataracts forms impressive clouds that soak the forested islands and river banks resulting in a visually stunning and constantly changing interface between land and water. An often-photographed rainbow usually appears stretched across the falls in a particular spot.

The rich biodiversity includes over 2,000 species of plants, 400 species of birds and possibly as many as 80 mammals, as well as countless invertebrate species.
