Feb 5, 2020 - Iguazú-Argentinean side

We had an early start today in order to catch the first train at the park when it opened at 0800. We rode to the last stop where we walked about 1.2k to the top of Devil's Throat. This path is on a catwalk that crosses the river many times. The view is totally different than the one we had from the Brazilian side yesterday. We were well sprayed with mist, not unwelcome on another sweltering day. During our walk back to the train, we passed many coatimundi (coati), an animal related to the raccoon. They are quite pesky, always scrounging for...

Feb 4, 2020 - Iguazú-Brazilian side

Alicia arrived early to take us to the domestic airport, Jorge Newberry. It is pretty big and crowded, but we managed our way through check-in and security. Our guide Marcelo met us at the Iguazu airport and we immediately went to visit the Brazilian side of the falls. It involves a couple of border security checkpoints and he thought it was a good idea to get this part done when it was not so busy. Marcelo has a wealth of information, not just about Iguazu, but about all the flora and fauna that we saw. He said he loved to read, and was...

Dec 29, 2018 - Magnificent Iguazu Falls

A full day of riding the little tourist train to various circuits of the Falls. While the park was very crowded with holiday tourists, we rarely had to wait in line for train rides to various sections of the Falls. The guidebook says: Iguazú Falls, Brazil & Argentina Straddling the borders of Brazil and Argentina, Iguazú Falls is the largest waterfall system in the world. While it may not be the tallest, it's certainly one of the widest. It’s also one of the most distinct in shape because it has a staircase formation: water flows over two...

Oct 17, 2018 - Iguazu falls from the Argentinian side

We arrived on the overnight bus at 9.30 and were met by local guide Fidel. We then had to go on a hired bus for a few kilometres and then swap to another hired bus. Us and all our baggage. This is something to do with rights of which bus companies can collect tourists from the bus station. A lot of mucking around. We settle in and go straight to the National Park still on the Argentinian side. Once in the park we walk the high trail to see the Iguazu Falls. There are boardwalks along the cliffs where the water from the Iguazu River thunders...

Oct 16, 2018 - Buenos Aires to Iguzau Falls

Today we are to catch a bus to the Iguazu falls but we have the morning free. We pack up and head out for a walk hopefully to finish up in San Thelmo to see El Zanjon. We end up walking up Defensa Avenida where the market was yesterday. It has a differnt feel when there are no stalls and hardly any people around. We stop for a coffee in a food and fruit market. Here we pick up some rolls and bananas for our bus trip tonight. At 11.30 we wait outside El Zanjon and chat to an American couple. The tour of El Zanyon starts at 12 and firstly we...

Dec 4, 2017 - Iguazu Falls Magical

As I sit here in the Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas after stuffing ourselves silly on the Brazilian "All you can eat" Buffett and a couple of our now favourite cocktails caipirinha, I reflect on are unbelievable fantastico few days at the Falls. We arrived into the airport and were immediately swept in 5star luxury. We had been booked on the front row of the a la carte resturant over looking the falls. Following what was an excellent fish dish caught from the falls. We were than booked on a full moon midnight walk to the falls to see the moon...

Dec 2, 2017 - Iguassu Falls after flying from Cuibia and onto Brazilia and then onto Iguassu

First week step count 62,500 Today is Saturday 2nd of December and I am writing the log in unashamed luxury at the Belmont Hotel, the only accommodation in this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Already have been down the the pool as well as the falls. I am running out of adjectives, similes, words that express awe, but it is awesome in its power and size. Had an interesting journey here as we left Mutum we entered a storm, which nearly left us cut off from civilisation, however getting through we arrived at Cuibia only to have further storms...

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...
