IGUAZÚ FALLS
One of the planet´s most awe-inspiring sights, the Iguazú Falls are simply astounding. A visit is a jaw-dropping, visceral experience, and the power and noise of the cascades – a chain of hundreds of waterfalls nearly 3km in extension – live forever in the memory. An added benefit is the setting: the falls lie Split between Brazil and Argentina in a large expanse of national park, much of it rainforest teeming with an unique flora and fauna. Both Argentina´s Puerto Iguazú and Foz do Iguacu, on the Brazilian side, have a wide choice of accommodations.

IBERÁ
This stunning wetland reserve is home to an abundance of bird and animal life, and is among South America´s finest places to see wildlife. Although tourism has increased substantially in recent years, Los Esteros del Iberá remains comparatively unspoiled. The lakes and esteros (lagoons) are shallow, fed only by rainwater, and thick with vegetation, wich accumulates to form embalsados (floating islands); this fertile habitat is home to a stunning array of life.

Sinister black caimans bask in the sun while capibaras feed around them. Other mammals include the beautiful orange-colored marsh deer, howler monkeys (officially the world´s noisiest animal), the rare maned wolf, coypu, otters and several species of bat.
