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...

Sep 23, 2011 - Iguazu Falls

As I said in my last blog, I went to Iguazu Falls this weekend. Helga and I had a rough start since we were almost late for our bus, but in true Argentine fashion, the bus was also late. The 18 hour ride was actually quite nice. We had almost a full bed and a good dinner and breakfast. It poured rain on Saturday, but luckily we weren't doing anything other than touring the little downtown area. It was a very touristy area. They didn't sell very much aside from Iguazu sweaters and Mate cups. Sunday was the most exciting day because Autumn...

May 27, 2011 - Iguazu Falls - into the sub-tropical zone

Lisa Toulan Michelle Dobosz The beauty of Iguazu Falls cannot be easily described with words. We thought we were prepared for the trip and the view we were about to see but upon sight of the falls we were still found amazed. These waterfalls cover 2 miles and contain up to 275 waterfalls at one time with 21 of those being permanent. On our flight in we were able to see the mists from the waterfall called the Devil’s Throat rising above the trees. These mists often rise hundreds of feet into the air but it was still surprising to be able to...

Apr 27, 2011 - Iguazú Falls

Stayed at the Iguazú Inn. Really awesome hostel, has a huge pool and 'club med' vibe http://maps.google.com.au/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=Foz+de+Iguassu,Brasil&daddr=Londrina+-+Parana,+Brazil+to:San+Paolo,+Brasile+to:Rio+de+Janeiro,+Brazil&geocode=FVAjev4d2x-__ClLL3CgtpH2lDHlTqE4n_HX6A%3BFcaUnP4dqSjz_CkxqGMdsETrlDFeEtez5Eq_fw%3BFfGrmP4dHlk4_SnRYaSDgUTOlDGuWzP_CEupmw%3BFQ2Fov4djaxs_SkLtSRC_n6ZADHuWWyEPCWI-Q&hl=en&mra=ls&sll=-24.41568,-52.878605&sspn=3.620865,7.064209&ie=UTF8&z=6

Mar 10, 2011 - Iguazu Cascades

Well we have transitioned from high mountain desert to jungle rainforest, rivers, and waterfalls. We are staying in Puerto Iguazu in Argentina; the Iguazu River divides Argentina and Brazil, so there is a Brazilian side (akin to the Canadian Niagara). Having never been to either Victoria or Niagara, I can't comment on comparison. Iguazu Cascades are immense. There are two major sections. The upper is referred to as the Devil's Throat. It is taller and more 'narrow', only about 3/4's of a mile wide! The lower section is less tall (only a few...

Jan 28, 2011 - Mission

Friday, January 28, 2011 Today was a very long day. We were on the bus at 8:10 am on our way to Argentina to see the site of a Jesuit mission. This also meant Stefania would be collecting our passports to present to immigration. We were not as swift as yesterday; Friday is a much busier day and the wait was much longer - almost an hour. Rodrigo showed us a special cup for drinking Mate, a native tea. The cup is without a handle and has a metal straw that is shared among the group. Rodrigo explained some of the etiquette when sharing the...

May 1, 2010 - Feel the Power of Iguazu

So I woke up today, thinking it was 6am and then looked at the alarm to realise it was 9am. Bugger, Iguazu opens at 9am and i wanted to beat the crowds. I hastily showered and dressed and rushed across the road to wait for the bus. Two buses p[assed me and didn't stop. I don't know why, it may be a great mystery that never goes solved but the third bus stopped and i was on my way to Iguazu. Night time was great, but the day promised to show so much more. The ticket price is enough of a rort, 85 pesos for foriegners, 45 for Brazilians,...

Apr 30, 2010 - Its my birthday @ Iguazu

A bit weird waking up on your birthday away from home. no early morning calls from relatives to wish me the best on my birthday. As much as i tried to avoid it, I had a plane to catch today to Iguazu. A 24hr bustrip on variable roads vs the 2 hr flight was a no brainer. However I do have a 18 hr trip back to Buenos Aires on a fully reclinable 180 degree sleeper on Monday. So I get to the airport, with not many people there. I walk into the boarding queue, only to realize boarding isn't open, yet all the people sitting around waiting for...

Sep 7, 2008 - Puerto de Iguazu (Argentina) and Foz do Iguaçu (Brazil)

We said our goodbyes to Karen and she flew home the same day as our flight to Puerto Iguazu. This is the location of one of Argentina's natural wonders, the magnificent Iguazu Falls. The location of the falls is right on the border with Brazil (and also very close to Paraguay). We spent three nights in Puerto Iguazu and made a day trip to the falls on the Argentinian side. Iguazu Falls are taller than Niagara and four times as wide, they also span almost three miles of a crescent-shaped cliff. There are lots of different falls to visit (275...

Jul 28, 2008 - Argentina - Iguazu

We arrived at the town near the falls at 2pm after a 17hr luxurios bus ride i.e. the seats turned into beds alike a sky bed, and the food service was great!! The Iguazu falls are on the boarder of Argentina and Brazil (Paraguay just missed out!) but the best views appear to be from the Argentinian side (ironically it only takes a couple of hours to get a Brasilian Visa here!!). This natural attraction was awesome. It is hard to believe that the water flow is non-stop. The "Devil´s Throat" was the best viewing platform.

Jun 10, 2008 - Iguazu

Efter en lang bustur ankom vi til Puerto Iguazu, en lille argentinsk by naer de store Iguazu vandfald. Efter massiv shopping i BA, kunne vi knap baere vores baggage, men det lykkes os dog at blive indlogeret paa et udmaerket hostel kort efter vores ankomst efter raad fra en franskmand ved navn Oliviere, som vi moedte i bussen. Iguazu vandfaldene er delt af graensen imellem Brasilien og Argentina. Paa den brasilianske side ser man det store panorama og paa den argentinske side kommer man taet paa de enkelte fald. Vi havde besluttet at...

Feb 13, 2008 - From the Iguassu Falls in Brazil to the Iguassu Falls in Argentina

These falls are enormous, but we had no idea how big and impressive they were. They are the largest in the world measuring 3 kilometers across and 70 m high. As we sat on the little tourist bus that took us down to the veiwing walkways we turned a corner and caught sight of a huge sweep of cataracts. This was not the most impressive bit though because when you walked down to the walkway this huge amount of water confronts you. We had a very pleasant lunch at the resteraunt at the end of the trail overlooking the top of the falls. There are...
