What better way to focus on one’s mind, body, and soul than by visiting a Natural Wonder of the World? Escape reality and immerse yourself within the wonder of the Iguazu Falls, a chain of 275 waterfalls surrounded by 10 trillion square feet of rainforest. These falls run for 1.7 miles, while marking the border between Brazil and Argentina. Located in the northeast point of Argentina, province of Misiones, the Iguazu Falls were listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. Offering an immeasurable amount of culture and adventure, the falls support excursions promoting communal bonding, self- confidence and empowerment.
FALL IN LOVE WITH THE LEGEND
The name "Iguazu," comes from the native Guarani language. Its meaning "big waters" is formed by the words "y" which means water and "ûasú" which means "big."
According to a romantic Guaraní legend, a warrior named Toroba fell in love with a beautiful Indian named Naipi. Together they tried to flee their village on a canoe down the Iguazu River. A God who planned to marry Naipi sliced the river in half creating the Iguazu Falls. Naipi fell out the canoe and landed at the bottom of the river, and Toroba remained at the top, thus separating Naipi and her love for eternity.
When Eleanor Roosevelt, late U.S. first lady, visited Iguazu Falls she exclaimed "Poor Niagara!"
The largest recorded flow of water occurred in 2014 when the falls had 12 million gallons of water flow per second. Whereas the average water flow during the rainy months only reaches 2 million gallons of water per second.
