Mocona in Guaraní language: “The one who swallows everything.”

The Moconá Provincial Park is located in the east-central region of Misiones, about 337 kilometers from Posadas, capital of the province, and 320 kilometers from the city of Puerto Iguazú.

Its formation is due to a geological fault on the Uruguay River, between the mouths of the Pepirí Guazú and Yabotí streams (on the Argentine side), and the Brazilian rivers Serapiao and Calixto.

The Great Salto del Moconá, is a 3-kilometer-long canyon with waterfalls parallel to its channel.

The Moconá Falls are home to unique plant and animal species associated with the rocks, which are called the Yaboti Biosphere.
