  1. Iguazú Falls are located on Argentina's border with Brazil, with Iguazu National Park on the Argentine side and Iguaçu National Park on the Brazilian side. Iguazu is made up of between 150 and 300 separate falls along its roughly three-kilometer edge, a number that varies depending on the season, with heights ranging from 60 to 82 meters. It's reasonably easy to visit, especially if traveling from Buenos Aires because it's served by an international airport in Argentina (as well as one in neighboring Brazil). Iguazu Falls, with its 2.7-kilometer width and 275 waterfalls, is regarded as one of the world's most captivating sites, attracting visitors from all over the world to see and experience the cascades firsthand. Iguazu Falls, named after the Guarani word for "great water", is an important aspect of South America's political and geological framework.

    These massive waterfalls, which are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are probably one of South America's most beautiful views. Visitors may get up and personal with the thunderous falls thanks to a network of easily accessible walkways and viewing platforms, some of which are located near the bottom of the falls, known as the Devil's Throat.

  2. The little town of El Calafate, the primary hub for tourists visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Patagonia's Los Glaciares National Park, provides lots of lodging options and other services for visitors. The Perito Moreno Glacier, a vast 30-kilometer-long ice formation (and the world's third-largest freshwater reserve) just 78 kilometers from the town center, is where most visitors take tours to explore the park's popular glaciers. It's only a two-hour drive from El Calafate to the glacier's big tourist center, and then a short walk to the glacier itself, which is named for a 19th-century explorer. Ice trekking tours range from an hour's walk across the ice formation to larger five-hour excursions for individuals who want to climb the glacier.

    The 3,359-meter-tall Monte Fitz Roy, which straddles the Chilean border and is said to be tougher to climb than Everest, is another notable feature of Los Glaciares National Park.

    Visitors usually depart having seen everything from right whales (here to mate and calve) to elephant seals, sea lions, and orcas on guided excursions of the reserve. Migratory shorebirds, particularly Magellanic penguins, use the area as a breeding habitat.
