The Falls are formed by the waters of the Iguazú River, which means “big water” in the Tupi-Guaraní language (and – “water”, “river” and guazú – “big”), which run, in the east-west direction , 1320 km to its mouth, in the city of Foz do Iguaçu, constituting the border with Argentina. The Iguazú River is born in the eastern part of the municipality of Curitiba, near the Serra do Mar, draining into the Paraná River, in the Plata Basin, 90 meters above sea level.
