Straddling the border with Argentina, the mighty Iguazu Falls is one of the most famous natural wonders on the South American continent. Composed of over 250 separate cascades and stretching for more than one and a half miles, it's an incredible spectacle, especially during the wet season when it swells with water. The area is clad with jungle and home to colourful butterflies and other animals so it's great for a scenic wander.

The quality of life in this incredibly efficient city is second to none and has green areas in abundance, making it one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the entire country.

The awe-inspiring Iguazu Falls, consisting of 275 cascades, sits on the border between Brazil and Argentina and is truly one of the most breathtaking sights in the world. The streams of water that tumble down the cliff sides are powerful and create heavy jet sprays, giving the entire area a misty and mysterious look. The region surrounding the falls is covered in thick rainforest, inhabited by all kinds of exotic wildlife, including ocelots and caymans.

Rio de Janeiro
