Hola hola hola! La próxima semana Ted y yo viajaremos al Parque Nacional Iguazú. Localiza en la frontera de Argentina y Brasil. Las Cataratas del Iguazú consisten de 275 cataratas.

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...

Oct 14, 2013 - Iguazu

Iguazu Arriving at night is a bit of a disappointment as you are robbed of the amazing scenery. However, transitioning from the dry of the desert to the humidity of the jungle is best done when the temperatures are in the mid twenties and not the mid-thirties. Arriving at our hotel which was about a 30 min ride from the airport. The theme being of a jungle lodge, picture lots of small building attached by wooden walkways nestled in the lush of the jungle. At least it had a restaurant, so we didn't have to leave to find dinner. The clerk...

Mar 22, 2013 - Iguazu Falls

On Tuesday 19 March 2013 we flew up to Puerto Iguazu. We arrived late in the afternoon as the plane was delayed. Checked into our hotel and then had a walk around town as it was too late to go to the falls. The falls close at 6 pm so it is best to make it an entire day trip. On Wednesday we spent the entire day at the falls. It rained in the morning and we thought it would rain all day but it did clear up by mid morning. The falls have 3 stations - Estacion ( Central station), Estacion Cataratas ( Falls Station) and Estacion Garanta del...

Argentina Trip 2013

Mar 13, 2013 - Obera

Off this morning to the Park Mocona. Got within 1 & ½ K of the Park and falls when the high river stopped us in our tracks. The bridge across the River Guazu leading into the park was 6 foot under water. . We did not want to see if the motorhome was floatable so we turned around at waters edge and headed for Obera. The drive was well worth it even if we did not get to the falls. Not many places you see ox pulled carts fully loaded being used for work and not show. We even saw one the other day that was being used as a transport for kids to...

Mar 12, 2013 - El Soberbio

More rain today so we took the Southern route to El Soberbio on the Uruguay River. We watch as one boat keeps ferrying people from Argentina to Brazil avoiding the border crossing. Tomorrow we hope to drive to the falls in Park Mocona. Another nice park with wifi this time so we can catch up on the blog. Can you believe it rains while we are in a rain forest? Go figure. Our other traveling friends have returned from Chile and are now in Argentina. They returned last Thursday. They will continue touring Argentina until the 17th then on the...

Mar 9, 2013 - Iguazu Falls

Up early as we want to be at the falls about opening time at 8AM. We are on the first train that takes us all the way to Grande de Diablo. After getting off the train it is a ¾ mile walk each way. Hats of to Pat. Even though her legs are hurting a lot, she was determined to make it there and back and she did. Spectacular sights today. We were thinking of taking out a loan and going to Brazil tomorrow to see the falls ($USD 300) per person for 5 hours, but decided that the views from the Argentina side were great and we were not going to...

Mar 8, 2013 - Iguazu Falls

Today we head to Iguazu Falls with a stop at San Ignacio for a visit to an old Mission Ruins. We have been told that there is a good campground, “Americano”. We are told that there are two other groups of motorhomes going to be there, both groups are operated by a company from Germany-Uruguay. One group is approximately 8 rigs and they have been on the road since mid November and the other group (French) have been on the road since late November. Bot groups end about the same time we do. Most everyone in the other groups has their own rig,...
