IGUASSU

Folded into narrow strips of land between tropical beaches and towering mountains, Rio de Janeiro offers staggering vistas, energizing rhythms, exciting beaches and of course, Carnival celebrations. Located between Brazil and Argentina, the spectacular Iguassu Falls are three times wider than Niagara Falls.
