Nov 2, 2016 - End of Travels

End of Adventure This morning we awakened in time to finish packing and say goodby to Argentina! Marcos and the bus (with driver) met us at the hotel to get us to the airport for our long journey home! We were glad to have Marcos and Jorge assist with our checkin - Judi and I were able to get our boarding passes for all three flights, we would have to pick up our luggage in Buenos Aires domestic airport and then recheck it at the International airport several kilometers away. Upon arrival in Buenos Aires with luggage we were a little...

Nov 1, 2016 - Iguazu National Park

It was another early day. It had rained really hard with thunder and lightning during the night Judi tells me. I slept thru it all and didn't hear a thing. The weather forecast was 100% rain, 1-2 inches, and high humidity. Their weather forecasts are as good as ours and it was a beautiful day. A little overcast which was nice because the temperature was very comfortable. Today we are going to visit the Argentinian side of the Falls at the Iguazu National Park and Marco, our local guide, made a strong case for getting to the park early to...

Oct 31, 2016 - Iguaza Falls - Brazil Side

Brazilian side of Iguaza Falls This morning we are in the air again - off to Iguaza Falls on the border of Argentina and Brazil. The traveling group is now 8 plus Jorge, our trip leader. As we deplane, we are hit with a blast of hot humid air and our local guide, Marcos, to assist us for the next couple of days. Today we are touring the Brazilian side of the falls; which involves navigating through paperwork across both borders. First we change buses as we need a Brazilian bus to take us into Brazil; then we stop at the Argentine border...

Oct 6, 2014 - Posadas Day 2

School kids have decended on my nice hotel it has livened it up my phone in the room rings and there are knocks on the door. Apart from that they are no problem, breakfest this morning started good but after ten minutes they came in like a hoard of termites and cleaned it up. Has rained heavily here all night so will not be doing any sight seeing today. Bus leaves for Santa Fe at three so hope it stops before then. bye FRANK

Oct 5, 2014 - Posadas

Hectic day today great breakfast but money problems ATM at airport nearby was empty when I tried last night. So walked into town found big supermarket not working either. Asked locals found a couple but card would not work only for locals. So decided to head home but did not expect big thunder storm. Soaked but happy I returned to the airport ATM still empty so complained to staff who could not help But a nice girl who spoke English told me to try the canteen who changed my $100 American for 1000 pesos so I can eat & drink again.Bye Frank

Jul 31, 2014 - gotta love those negative ions..

Fun fact: waterfalls make people happy :) It has something to do with the falling water releasing negative ions and through some biochemical mishmash - voila! People just seem to be in a better mood. These ions came in handy a few times during our stay at the much-anticipated Puerto Iguazu... First, there's our hostel. We got put on a rickety bunk bed and the whole 8x8 room smells like mildew. Second, to see the famous Iguazu Falls, we had to elbow our way through a kilometer-long crowd of nametag-wearing tourists. Like the khaki shorts,...

Jul 27, 2014 - bamboo, dental floss, safety pins, and chicken

You probably won't find San Ignacio on any map of Argentina, but this little jungle town will always hold a special place in our hearts. The reason people come to San Ignacio by the bus load is for the ancient Jesuit ruins, which lie right smack in the middle of the town. We visited the ruins on our first day, but we found the grounds overrun by gawking tourists and the photos inescapably cliché. Not the kind of experience we were looking for. Our time in San Ignacio can truly be measured in kilometers... 32 to be exact. Over our 3 days in...

Jan 10, 2014 - Iguazu Falls and Buenos Aires

IGUAZU AND BUENOS AIRES in ARGENTINA I hadn't quite appreciated the climate shock involved in flying straight from Ushuaia via Buenos Aires to Iguazu, to visit the famous falls which are bordered by Argentina and Brazil, with Paraguay meeting them at the "3 Borders Point" just downstream. I moved from sub-zero, frozen, heavy fleece and jacket, to chilly and still wearing a fleece, to hot, humid and tropical rainforest within three days. Getting me prepared for the return home, I guess. In any case, the Iguazu Falls were spectacular and well...

Jan 9, 2014 - Puerto Iguazu: Iguazu Falls

Puerto Iguazu, Argentina: Visiting Iguazu Falls ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 09 January 2014 The Brazilian Side The Rio Iguazu divides Argentina and Brazil. The Falls can be viewed from both countries. In Brazil you get a great panoramic perspective. In Argentina you get more up close and there is more to do. I visited the Brazil side on the afternoon of my arrival. Having missed the last bus I had to take a taxi. It is about 20km from...

Oct 18, 2013 - Iguazu Falls Day 2

Day 2 commenced with a walk to the train station which took us to the top of the Falls to Devils Throat (Garganta del Diable), 82 metres high and 150 metres wide. Our guide made us get up early so we would be in the first group to arrive, he also had a knack of avoiding queues, good planning again, Filipe! We also walked the upper circuit and lower circuit on the Argentinian side. Iguazu was quite overwhelming. We had previously been impressed with Victoria Falls, but must say that we were amazed by the size and extent of the waterfalls,...

Oct 17, 2013 - Iguazu Falls

After an overnight stay at a Santiago airport hotel, we were on our way to Iguaza Falls in Argentina. Our hotel is situated right at the Falls and the view from the hotel, and more so, our room, was spectacular. This close proximity enabled us to walk around the falls when the crowds were gone. We celebrated our arrival with a welcoming bottle of bubbly, managing to avoid a visit from a multitude of monkeys wanting to join us on the balcony. We originally had a full day tour organised, but our guide suggested we split this into 2 half...
