Argentina shares the fabulous site of the Iguaçu Falls with Brazil, which were made famous worldwide in the film ?Mission' with 275 falls spanning a distance of more than one and a half miles with an average height of 230 ft in the middle of a tropical jungle. It is an extraordinary spectacle that really deserves a whole day's visit.
