Foz de Iguassu Falls are located on the borders of Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay - and have 275 large water flows, falling from a terrible height. Falls are located in the National Park with their unique flora and fauna, which appeared after a volcanic eruption, and the displacement of the earth formations. The name Tupi-Guarani Indian tribe is translated from the waterfalls and means "big water". There are 275 waterfalls, each of which has its own name, which rush down with a crash into the canyon of "Devil's Throat". There is an amazing contrast between the calm and even lazy river water over Iguassu Falls above and the powerful overthrow boiling water flows from a height of 72 meters into the abyss. You can stand for hours without stopping, watching this show, and thinking about the magnificence of the universe and eternity. You will go on a trip "Makuko safari" through the jungle.
