“My life motto is to “Always chase waterfalls” and it’s a literal and metaphorical reference to chasing your dreams, and Iguazu Falls is the biggest one that I had dreamt of. I had to jump through flaming hula hoops to get there (and even failed to get there the year before), but when I finally caught sight of the biggest and most beautiful waterfall I’d ever seen, my face was like the heart-eyed smiley emoji.”
Adventure junkie Alyssa Ramos blogs on mylifesamovie.com. She is a 33-year-old self-made travel blogger and social media influencer. She packed away all of her stuff a few years ago and has been travelling solo full-time ever since. Her description of Iguazu Falls intrigued us enough to learn more about them. And here’s what the UNESCO World Heritage website told us:
“It is located in Misiones Province in the Northeastern tip of Argentina. It borders the Brazilian state of Parana to the north. Iguazú National Park with its sister park Iguaçu in Brazil, is among the world’s visually and acoustically most stunning natural waterfalls sites. It was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1984.
Across a width of almost three kilometres, The Iguazú or Iguaçu River drops vertically some 80 meters in a series of cataracts. The river is named after the indigenous term for “great water”. It forms a large bend in the shape of a horseshoe in the heart of the two parks.”
Feel the mist on your skin and hear the roar of the mighty waterfalls as you venture closer to nature’s masterpiece. Brace yourself for an adrenaline-pumping boat ride. You’ll get up close and personal with the roaring torrents, experiencing the sheer power of Iguazu Falls firsthand.
Whether you’re an adventure seeker, a nature enthusiast, or simply a curious traveller. Iguazu Falls promises an unforgettable experience.
