Location: Foz do Iguaçu, Paraná, Brazil
The Iguazu Falls are a real force of nature taller than the Niagara Falls and twice as wide. Iguazo means “big water” in the Tupi or Guarani language. The falls had been designated as one of the new seven wonders of nature in 2011.

iguazo falls
Situated on the border of Brazil and Argentina, they are composed of 275 water falls covering two miles and ranging from 200 feet to 269 feet in height.
