The Legend of Iguassu Falls is an embellished Brasilian folktale recounting the mystery and beauty behind the creation of Iguassu Falls, one of the seven natural wonders in South America. This story describes life in the rainforest for the native Caingangue and Healer tribes. These two hostile and culturally different tribes try to survive the tests of nature, disease epidemics, and the wrath of a jealous ancient god. In learning the secrets of the forest, the tribes come to respect nature and each other, but they struggle to balance their own desires with the expectations of the tribal leaders. This story is their belief of how Iguassu Falls was formed. Today we dream of escaping the paper, people, and walls that clutter our lives. A visit to Iguassu Falls is more than just a getaway; it is a journey that will fill your soul and renew your faith in the splendor of nature-a place that pulsates with adventure and laughter. Close your eyes-or better yet, go-and see breathtaking vistas, hear Iguassu's roar, feel the power of the Devil's Throat, and experience the exotic sights and sounds of a lush rainforest. Immerse yourself-let Taroba and Naipi show you how to become a part of the world that is seen by only the uncommon adventurer . . . YOU.
