Iguazú Falls (in Spanish: Iguazú Falls) is a group of about 275 water falls on the Iguaçu River (in the Paraná River Basin).

Located between the Iguaçu National Park and the Iguazu National Park in Misiones, Argentina, on the border between the two countries.

Visited by people from the most diverse corners of the planet. Attracted by the Iguaçu River Falls, a set of 275 waterfalls that reach 90 meters, tourists delight in the breathtaking look.

The Park protects a rich biodiversity, made up of representative species of Brazilian fauna and flora, some of which are threatened with extinction, such as jaguars, pumas, and many other species of relevant value and scientific interest.

Known internationally by the Itaipu Hydroelectric Power Plant, the second largest in the world in size and first in power generation.

Directed by the Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation ICMBio, the federal agency responsible for the management of Brazil’s Conservation Units, Iguaçu is an example of integration between conservation and sustainable use of natural resources.

Due to its unparalleled beauty, Iguazu Falls participated in the worldwide campaign to choose the seven natural wonders of the world, organized by the New 7 Wonders Foundation.

The cataracts were among the 28 finalists of the campaign, which lasted until the end of 2011 when it reached the number of 1 billion votes
