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...

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...

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...

Feb 12, 2013 - Iguazu Falls - one of the seven modern wonders

Today we crossed off another “bucket list” item. We went to Iguazú/Iguaçu Falls. Notice that I used both the Spanish and the Portuguese spellings. For the rest of this post, I will be using the Spanish spelling since we were in Argentina the entire time; however, we had some good views of Brazil during our trip. It was another very early morning. We began with a 7:30 AM trip to the airport, followed by a 1 ½ hour flight from BA to Puerto Iguazú. A short bus ride from the airport to the Parque Nacional de Cataratas de Iguazú and there we...

Today we walked through Iguazu Falls, starting with el tren to the Devils Throat area. Three rivers join khere & form gigantic rushing waterfalls.
