A memorable experience

This spectacle of the nature, considered like one of the wonders of the world, was originated about 200 thousand years ago in the site that today we know like “Landmark of the Three Borders”, where the Iguazú river and Parana come together.

A geological fault produced in the channel the Parana river caused that the mouth of the Iguazú river was turned a steep cascade of 80 meters of height.

From that one point, where the Cataracts were originated, to where nowadays is the Throat of the Devil exist 23 kilometers of distance, due to the slow backward movement erosive, but continuous in the position of the Cataracts.

This great original cascade, has become two great winding arcs of 2700 meters of extension. Being the most imposing jump of the set, the Throat of the Devil, 80 meters of height, one is in the main course of the river. According to the river, it owns more or less of great volume are possible to be admired between 160 and 260 jumps, that in average terms would be about 1500 cubic meters of water per second.

The violence of the fall produces a permanent fog, in which the solar rays conform manifolds rainbow of insurmountable beauty
