A great addition to my waterfalls collection came from José - Iguazú Falls! Iguazú Falls are waterfalls of the Iguazu River on the border of Brazil and Argentina and one of the biggest waterfalls of the world. The falls divide the river into the upper and lower Iguazu. It flows through Brazil for most of its course. According to the legend, a god planned to marry a beautiful woman named Naipí, who fled with her mortal lover Tarobá in a canoe. In rage, the god sliced the river, creating the waterfalls and condemning the lovers to an eternal fall.
Iguazú Falls was announced as one of the seven winners of the New Seven Wonders of Nature by the New Seven Wonders of the World Foundation in 2011. I've also been reading comments on many travel blogs lauding Iguazú Falls. My must-see list for the South America is getting longer and longer!
