Mighty Iguaçu Falls

One of the most romantic destinations in the world, the mighty Iguaçu Falls between Brazil and Argentina are also one of the most awesome. No other waterfalls compare in sheer power (the tremendous amount of water and the number of falls) and the beauty of its tropical location. The falls are a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site and you can visit both the Brazilian and the Argentinian sides. There's a perennial competition going on between the two countries as to which views are the most beautiful and dramatic! Iguaçu Falls were featured prominently in the last Indiana Jones film...
