Jun 18, 2009 - Puerto Iguazu

Not too much to write tonight. We travelled for most of the day yesterday catching a taxi to the airport, after staying up late the night before as we met and talked with Bobzy and Mena, who were from Finland and Norway respectively. We talked as they progressively got more and more unsober, in preparation for their night out. Topics were the normal ones for hostels, you know, medical systems, pension plans, human resources, and the financial crisis and unions. Then it led to the partying in Rio and other boring hostel conversations ;9 We...

Apr 14, 2009 - Iguazu Falls, Argentinean side and Boat ride

I thought 2.5 days in the area would be to much, but in fact it was just perfect. Hiking each side of the falls Brazil and Argentina along with going to the base in a boat, provided very different experiences. Argetinian side is a must. Again just see the pictures.

Mar 24, 2009 - Iguazu Falls

@@@@@@@ KAPOORS ON THE ROAD We booked our hotel for four nights so that we would have three full days to see the Iguazu Falls and the surrounding jungle. We had read that there are tours that visitors can take to explore the jungle canopy, even sliding along zip lines high above the forest floor. I kept thinking that this was a place for us to try a zip line, I’ve done it once outside of Edmonton but Anil has never been on one. However, we were so wasted from our bus journey, that we just lazed around the hotel for the whole of the first...

Mar 8, 2009 - Iguazu Falls

I spent a fantastic day at Iguazu Falls (near the town of Puerto Iguazu) with an equally enthusuastic traveller, Silvia and Austian Ozzie. The weather was spectacular! The afternnon before poured, so I saw the entire park in one day...including the train ride to the Devil´s Falls. Worth the 18 hour overnight bus ride there...and back to Buenos Aires! The bus rides in Argentina are not what you'd expect. I´m travelling in luxury here...seat reclines fully (100%) AND they serve dinner, wine and champagne or whisky!

Feb 19, 2009 - Iguazu Falls (Argentina and Brazil)

Compared with Rosario, Puerto Iguazu was bliss. Our overnight bus ride was terrific - wine with dinner, chocolate and seats more comfortable than business class on LAN. We arrived around 11:30, well fed and rested, and settled into our new hostel, complete with pool and air con. We lazed around for the afternoon and next day, only making the trip to the Brazilian consulate for our visas... talk about ´on Brazil time´ - we waited two hours just for the doors to open throughout the day! On the Tuesday we ventured out to the Argentinian side...

Jan 27, 2009 - Iguazu Falls

Dave has been a stick in the mud with his class- he literally goes to school or studies around the clock- so I decided to head up to Iguazu Falls in northern Argentina. I sprung for a ticket to fly there (about $150) and took a 17-hour bus back. I had a little trepidation about spending the money and going... so often these "can't miss" sites can be easily missed alright, but I'm wasn't sure when I would have the chance to do it again. I met a couple of Danish girls at the hostel and we set out one morning for a full day of walking around...

Jan 24, 2009 - Iguazu Falls

We next flew on a chartered plane with the Republic group to the Argentinian side of Iguazu Falls. The hotel was nice (not as nice as the Four Seasons of course) with the highlight being the pool which was large and beautiful. We went into the little town to walk around, but there wasn´t so much to see or do. With the group, we did visit and dine at a huge wooden hut-like structure in the woods that a German guy has spent the last 15 years of his life building. I forget the name of the place. The Spanish word for ´trap.´ Does that help...

Jan 14, 2009 - Iguazu, Argentina

The Argentinean Side of Iguazu We had an amazing breakfast (it made up for the HORRIBLE dinner). Twenty minutes late as usual, we headed back to Argentina and ready for our Argentinean Iguacu experience. We went on a short walk to the train station where Nel Ton used his connections to get us in towards the front of the line. We rode the train to the first station, got off, and began our first long walk. We walked on a metal walkway to see devils throat from on top. It would have been great but...it was scorching hot and there were a ton of...

Nov 15, 2008 - My mom comes to Paraguay!

So this time it was mom's turn to visit Paraguay. My stay was barely a week, but oh so enjoyable. Gariety & I began our adventure in Puerto Iguazu on Sunday afternoon October 26th. I was a bit surprised she did not meet me at the airport (yes, one would think that was something we would have discussed prior to me leaving, however...), but I made my way to our little hotel easily on my own. Actually, she did go to the airport to meet me, but I arrived at a different side of the airport (weather-related problems), so we totally missed each...

Nov 3, 2008 - Parque Nacional Iguazu

There`s not much I could write about Iguazu Falls that would be an adequate description, so I`ll try to keep my ramblings to a minimum here; I`ve added a fair few photos but not even they can give a real idea of what it feels like to be there in person and be able to reach out and touch the almighty force of nature on display. All of the waterfalls look amazing, the soaking you get from the spray if you go anywhere near them, and the roar of the water that can be heard long before you go anywhere near it all contribute to the atmosphere....

Aug 14, 2008 - Argentina, Iguazu Falls

We arrived after an overnight bus ride to a small town called Puerto Iguazu. Immediately we noticed how peaceful and quiet it was here after the bustling noise of being in a city. It really felt tropical, being so humid and green and from the balcony by our room we could see many hummingbirds and parrots zipping through the trees. It was the hottest day of our trip so far and the first time in 2 months we got to wear shorts. We were excited and headed out early the next day to go the Iguazu Falls National Park, right on the border with...
