Maps of the Iguaz˙ Falls
Located at a bend in the mighty Iguazu River which forms the border between Argentina and Brazil the falls themselves are part of a sequence of impressive white water cascades.
Located in the heart of the Atlantic rainforest region of the continent it is close to the tri-border point between Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina. Over 1,500km by road from Rio de Janerio, and almost the same from Buenos Aires it is well away from other major destinations. Closer to Asuncion in Paraguay at less than 400km it is not normally associated with Paraguay despite its comparitive closeness to that capital city.
