With such a stunning view, it’s no surprise that this Argentine/Brazilian gem is host to even more dramatic legend. The story goes that a god once planned to marry a beautiful woman named NaipĂ­ who, upon hearing that, fled with her mortal lover down the Iguazu River in a canoe. In a jealous fit of rage, the god is said to have sliced the river apart and thus created the waterfall. That way, so surmised the god, the two would never escape the perpetual falling sensation.
