1. Iguazu Falls
Argentina / Brazil
The majestic Iguazu Falls are located along the Iguazu River, which forms the boundary between Brazil and Argentina. The 2.7km long waterfall edge is divided by several islands and outcrops, creating separate waterfalls which are between 60 and 82 metres (197 to 269ft) high. Although most of the falls are located on the Argentinian side, there are fantastic views from the Brazilian side. Both sides have walkways that allow visitors to enjoy spectacular views.
