Mesopotamia is the humid, verdant area of north-east Argentina, comprising the provinces of Misiones, Entre Ríos and Corrientes. The landscape is dominated by the Paraná and the Uruguay Rivers. The long parallel courses of the two rivers and the verdant areas between them drove comparisons to the region in modern-day Iraq called Mesopotamia, from which the Argentine region draws its name. The area has some of the most popular tourist attractions in Argentina, mainly the Iguazú Falls, the Iguazú National Park and the Jesuit monasteries in Misiones. The Iberá Wetlands in Corrientes are an extensive area of flooded forest similar to Brazil's Pantanal.
