Garganta del Diablo (Devil's Throat), Iguazu Falls, Argentina

The highlight of any trip to Iguazu Falls is this massive complex of cascades that form a narrow chasm some 150m (500ft) long and 80m (262ft) high. The roaring falls and veils of spray create an awesome, full-sensory experience, which can be enjoyed from any number of vantage points. The postcard-perfect view is from the Brazilian side, at the top of a 2km (1.2mi) trail ending in an elevator trip to the top of this natural wonder. To explore the falls up close, however, you'll need to take the Devil's Throat catwalks skipping across the deceptively calm waters …

Iguassu Falls, Iguazu Falls, Argentina

This spectacular landscape of crashing waterfalls was once held sacred by the Guarani people, who called it Iguassu, or "Big Water."

Iguazu Falls, Iguazu Falls, Argentina

Though the Brazilians boast of their outstanding views over the falls, Argentina is blessed with about 80% of Iguazu, lovingly threaded by several kilometers of paved trails and catwalks that could keep you occupied for three days. A free "jungle train" connects several trailheads. The Upper Circuit Trail offers outstanding views over Mbigua Falls and the undulating Iguazu River, before dropping toward misty Bernabe Mendez Falls. The Lower Circuit Trail has more views, as well as access to motorboat trips under the falls, whitewater rafting …

Rafain Churrascaria, Iguazu Falls, Argentina

What do you do when you're in rural Brazil? Feast on churrasco and enjoy a lively dance show, of course. In the city of Foz do Iguaçu near Iguazu Falls, the Rafain Churrascaria dinner show gives a flamboyant introduction into Central and South American music, dress and dance cultures: 45 brightly-clad musicians and dancers put on a lively two-hour show bursting with Argentine tango and Brazilian samba, Cuban salsa and Mexican mariachi music. Established in 1959, at Rafain Churrascaria the popular all-you-can-eat buffet has over 200 hot and cold dishes …

» San Ignacio Mini

San Ignacio Mini, Iguazu Falls, Argentina

Iguazu Falls aren't northern Argentina's only UNESCO World Heritage Site. History buffs may be tempted away from the falls by the Jesuit Missions of the Guaranis, a cluster of well-preserved ruins of reducciones, or settlements, built here by the Catholic order in the 1600s. There are four of these beautiful walled cities to explore: Sao Miguel das Missoes, in Brazil, and Argentina's Nuestra Señora de Loreto, Santa Maria Mayor, and San Ignacio Mini, the finest of them all. San Ignacio Mini was originally founded in 1611, and moved to the current location in 1696 …

» Three Borders Landmark

Three Borders Landmark, Iguazu Falls, Argentina

Iguassu Falls are famously shared between three nations: Brazil, Argentina and tiny Paraguay (which doesn't actually claim any part of the primary falls, only the rivers). Though the actual Tripitarte, or triple border, lies unmarked at the deepest part of the confluence of the Iguazu and Parana rivers, all three nations have erected monuments - built around obelisks painted patriotically with the colors of their respective flags - overlooking the spot. Originally erected in 1903, the memorials are built around three simple cement obelisks …

» Wanda Mines

Wanda Mines, Iguazu Falls, Argentina

The Wanda Mines, home to some of the best agate, amethyst, quartz and topaz found in Argentina, make for a fascinating visit in the north of Argentina. Located less than 40 miles (60 km) from Puerto Iguazu in the rain forest along the Paraná River, this open pit mine is a delight for the eyes. Wanda, the town where the mines are located, was founded mainly by Polish settlers, and in fact, it was named after a Polish princess who had a fondness for gemstones. The family-owned mine, where minerals are found near the surface …
