The Big Water
In Guarani (native language), "Y" means Water and "Guazu" means Big. The big water in Spanish became Cataratas del Iguazu, in Portuguese it became Cataratas do Iguacu and the old name that locals still use in Brazil is Iguassu. Iguazu Falls were chosen as one of the seven natural wonders of the world in 2011.
 
The lost wonder
click to enlargeIn South America remains a place that can still be called a Garden of Eden; one of the last remaining pieces of a pre-historic world. Located on the border of Brazil and Argentina, in the heart of two National Parks the place is still Sacred to the native Guarani Indians. There are no words to describe the feelings of those who come to this sacred land. Visitors can still hear the echoes of a distant past; the drums of the Guarani tribes venerating the natural beauty of this incredible place which they named Iguassu (Big Water).
 
What to see during your walk
click to enlarge70% of Iguassu Falls is located on Argentinean territory, but most of the Falls face Brazil. For this reason it is advisable for the visitor to see the Falls from both the Brazilian and Argentinean sides. The natural border between Brazil and Argentina is the Iguassu River. During your visit to the Brazilian side, you will see a lot of the Falls, the quantity always depends on the current volume of water. At some times during the year one can see as many as 275 separate waterfalls cascading along the edges of 2,700 meters (1,6 miles) cliffs. The biggest attraction is "Devils Throat" where the largest volume of water passes with a strong and impressive roar that can be heard several miles away. Highest point 82 metres or 269 ft at Devils Throat. Number of waterfalls 275. Average flow rate 1,700 m3/s (60,000 cu ft/s).
 
The trail at Iguassu Falls in Brazil
click to enlargeWalking the trail on the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls is easy. There is a main trail, approximately 1,600 meters (one mile) long, which leads the visitor along the river with its many smaller falls to the base of the biggest waterfall where a catwalk extends out over the brink of the series of falls which make up Devils Throat. This side provides a good general view of the falls. After walking the catwalk, there is a tower with an elevator/lift to get people to the top of the falls from where one can have a spectacular panoramic view. From the top of the tower, the trail continuation leads to the dead-end road. There one can find a souvenir shop and a food court. At the Porto Canoas one can have a lunch insight of the falls and also Iguassu River.
