The Iguazu Falls are the second biggest falls of the world. The first being the Victoria Falls in South Africa (not the Niagara Falls as many think! For that it is enough to remember Eleanor Roosevelt, the wife of U.S. President Roosevelt that visiting the Iguazu Falls and exclaiming "Poor Niagara!").
The photos and the video in this post hardly give justice to the beauty of this place, but certainly it will be even more difficult to describe the beautiful falls just with words. Best thing to describe them is probably the video you find below in this post.

The Iguazu Falls (in Spanish) or Iguaçu Falls (in Portoguese) are situated exactly at the border between Argentina and Brasil and they have a wonderful history.
Although many advise the opposite, it is an absolute mistake to decide to visit just one side of the waterfalls. Both the Brasilian side and the Argentinian side are extremely interesting, they are both worth your visit and they offer completely different views.
You can visit the Brasilian side of the falls in one day and than cross the border and visit the Argentinian side of the Iguazu Falls.
Visiting the Brasilian side of the falls it is quite easy, although they are few facts you should know before to visit.
