In the immortal words of Eleanor Roosevelt, “Poor Niagara!” as when you see Iguazu Falls, you’ll realize why its North American counterpart pales in comparison. Go to the Brazilian side first to see the Falls from afar and then head to the Argentinian side where you’ll get so close to the Falls, you feel the spray hit your skin.


2) Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

If you want to party, Rio de Janeiro is the place. The cidade maravilhosa is best enjoyed at New Year for its celebration on the beach Reveillon or of course, Carnaval. But fear not, even outside these celebratory times, Rio is a magical city and as soon as you arrive, you’ll fall under its unbreakable charm.
