Atlantic Forest

Iguazu Falls

National Park

Overview

The Iguaçu National Park is located in the Paraná State, in southern Brazil, and the Iguazú National Park is located in the Province of Misiones, in northern Argentina. Both parks have been recognized as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. Together they form a giant network of 275 waterfalls spanning an area of roughly 1.7 miles (2,7 km) wide.

The Iguaçu National Park and the Iguazú National Park protect over 617,000 acres (250,000 hectares) of native rainforest, of which many plant species and animal species are found nowhere else. The Iguaçu National Park alone shelters about 420,000 acres (170,000 hectares), making it one of the largest protected areas of the Atlantic Rainforest in the Paraná State.

The Iguazu River flows through the Paraná State, in Brazil, but most waterfalls lie on the Argentine side of the border. The waterfalls featured on each Park divide the Iguazu River into the upper and lower Iguazu, offering overwhelming, dramatic scenic views.

The experience is one-of-a-kind, as you take in the sights and sounds of the impressive waterfalls set amid the Atlantic Rainforest.
