Iguazu means Great Water in the Guarani language. It is an appropriate name for the river that travels 1,300 miles through Brazil and ends in wonderful falls in the jungle. That place connects the borders of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay.
The Amazon boat chase was not filmed on the famous river near the waterfalls. The scenes were shot on the St. Lucie River in Florida.
ALTERNATIVE LOCATION NAME
Las Cataratas del Iguazú
