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. We walked on the bridges & overlooks, marveling at the view and enjoying being misted by the spray ! It was very hot & humid(about 95 degrees)We then took the train back down to Lower trail areas & had a cerveza . We had fun watching the VERY many coatis, raccoon-like animal which is extremely populous in the park. Visitors are warned to be careful because they will take any food even "remotely"...

Jan 11, 2013 - Arrived!

Finally getting a chance to let you all know that we all had great flights to Argentina. We arrived inBuenos Aires, transferred to the domestic airport & met up with our agent "Isabel". To make the trip even better, she took us & our luggage, helped us check in & found that there was a flight to Iguazu that was late leaving & there was room for us. She hustled us through check-in & we left at noon--2 hours earlier than expected. We arrived in Iguazu about 2, took a taxi to Iguazu, checked into the Sheraton & settled into a long awaited...

Nov 17, 2012 - Iguazu Falls

16/17/18 Nov: Bumpy flight to Buenos Airies for overnight before departing for Iguazu National Park to see the falls! As always lots of seat swapping which seems the norm on Argentinian flights and all very laid back and friendly. Poor stewardesses had a bit of a time stopping and starting though :-D. Temp and Humidity hit us on the border with Brazil! Lovely to have an upgrade at our hotel in Puerto Iguazu, which has a holiday feel about it, although it is a good one anyway in comparison to some of the hostelries in walking country. It is...

Nov 7, 2012 - Majestic Iguazu

Wednesday 7th November WELCOME TO IGUAZU FALLS Early start for 7:40 am departure for Iguazu national park and the falls on the Argentinian side with local guide Daniel. Started with a walk and train to Devil's throat the biggest fall. Metal walkways take you above the river to viewing platforms. Truly magnificent and mesmerising sight of the water plunging over the edges, well worth all the effort of getting there. Back by train then walk to the upper falls. Heat rising to mid 30s. Different views of the nearly 300 falls that make up...
