In 2009 I spent 10 days traveling around in Argentina. Although we saw some amazing things my absolute favorite part of the trip was the 2 days we spent at Iguazu Falls. At the border of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay are a majestic collection of over 300 waterfalls. We spent 3 nights at an amazing hotel run by the nicest and most helpful brother and sister pair. I also ate one of the tastiest meals I've ever eaten: a delicious steak the size of my hand and 2 inches thick, 3 appetizers, 2 bottles of wine, and dessert all for about $20!
I spent 2 days exploring the waterfalls. As the water cascades down the Iguazu River there are a number of locations with gigantic waterfalls. Trails along the side of the bank provide viewpoints to watch the momentous amount of water flow past. I even hopped aboard a powerful inflatable boat and took a tour into the waterfalls.
This was my favorite photo of the falls. Here you can see the following waterfalls.
