Best waterfalls in the world: Iguazu – A top travel experience before I’m 30!
I’ve seen my fair share of waterfalls in my life. Niagara Falls and Victoria Falls were both pretty impressive, but it wasn’t until I visited Brazil and Argentina and saw Iguazu (or ‘Iguaçu’ as they are known in Brazil) from both sides that I truely knew just how incredible waterfalls could be.
The strength behind the water was incredible and the sound reinforced that.
These waterfalls were huge.
They were so lush in their surroundings and pure white in the flow when the water steamed up from the bottom.
The scene from the Brazil side gives you a vast overview of the entire waterfalls, while the Argentinean side allows you to get up close and personal walking above and below the waterfalls.
Birds singing and lush plants all around the paths, you really can get swept up in the beauty that this region holds.
I couldn’t really say which side I preferred, likewise I can’t really recommend one over the other for travellers. To truly experience Iguazu’s waterfalls, you need to visit both sides and have your camera handy (bonus points if you have a waterproof camera that works).

Those are just spectacular!
There is a small sized waterfall in British Columbia in a remote part of the sunshine coast and we use to jump off it into the pond below 😉 Could swim down the whole way as the river connected with the ocean.
Was just grand 🙂
I can imagine British Colombia is stunning! I’ve love to visit one day!
You definitely should 🙂 lush forests, the rocky mountains, lakes and the oceans 🙂 Our best treasure in many ways.
Gullfoss in Iceland??? Thats pretty amazing.
I loved all the butterflues at Iguazu. So many colours
Yer Gullfoss is pretty incredible too! Each has a different landscape to match though that makes them all amazing.
