Iguazu National Park, in Spanish Parque Nacional Iguazu, is located near Puerto Iguazú, Province of Misiones, in Argentina. It has an extension of 67,720 hectares (167.34 acres) within the Paranaense Forest ecoregion, and it’s one of the most incredible places you can visit in South America.

The Iguazú River, which means “big water” in Guaraní language, flows into the Paraná River. It is 1,500 meters wide (0.9 miles), and runs through islands and islets to finally fall from a lava cliff formed 120 million of years ago.
