The jaw-dropping waterfalls, which lie between Argentina and Brazil, leave a memorable experience. They’re in a huge expanse of rainforest and national park and you could reach them easily from either side of the Argentine-Brazilian border and from nearby Paraguay. You could stay in Puerto Igiazu on Argentina’s side or Foz do Iguacu on the Brazilian side.
Situated on the Gulfo Nuevo shores, this city is renowned as the entrance to Peninsula Valdes. The summer destination is also popular due to its stunning beaches even though the water can be cold.
