The Iguazu Falls: General Information
The Iguazu Falls are considered one of the most important natural sites in the entire world! The original inhabitants called the Falls “Iguazu”, which in their native language (Guarani) means “Great Waters.” At 01 Argentina, we offer a number of tour packages to this amazing natural tourism destination. If you travel to Iguazu Falls, you’ll have an experience complete with beautiful rainforest wildlife, jungle adventure tours, and incredible amounts of rushing water and vapor.
These impressive falls are shared by both Argentina and Brazil, as the Iguazu River is the boundary between these two countries. They are protected by both Argentine and Brazilian national parks. In 1985, this attraction was declared a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site. The Iguazu Falls are visited by many tourists from all over the world every year — in 2009 they were visited by more than one million people.
The Falls can be seen from both the Argentine and Brazilian sides. Of course, the ideal tour would involve traveling to both sides that way you’ll get the fullest experience and the most views of these amazing falls as possible. On this site, we offer you information about both sides of the falls, as well as information about the area in general and the opportunities you’ll have if you have travel there!
