Iguazu viene de palabras de Guarani o Tupi donde "y" significa agua y "ûasú" significa grande. Leyenda es que un dios quizo casarse con un mujer linda, Naipí, pero escapo con su amante mortal, Tarobá, en un canoa. De rabia, el dios corto los río en dos, creando los dos cataratas condenando los amantes a un caída eterna. - MA & CJ
You need to see these wonderful Iguaza waterfalls twice really – in low water season and high water season, as they’re so different from each other. They say you need to observe them from both sides too – from Brazil (as I did) and from Argentina (still to do). You can actually go under the waterfalls in a motorboat, and it’s the best shower in the world! Surrounding environs also have plenty of interesting sights worth checking out…
