Nov 19, 2017 - Puerto Iguazu, Argentina

It was less than a two hour flight to BA from Santiago but it took over an hour to get through the immigration line. I tried to get some dinero but there were only three ATMs I found and they were all out of money. I got a ticket using my credit card for the Arbus which has a few stops in the city and then goes to the other BA airport (AEP - Jorge Newberry) from where my flight to Iguazu was leaving. I made it on time and still couldn't find a functioning ATM so I had no money. The flight to iguazu was about 1 1/2 hours and by the time we...

Jul 31, 2014 - gotta love those negative ions..

Fun fact: waterfalls make people happy :) It has something to do with the falling water releasing negative ions and through some biochemical mishmash - voila! People just seem to be in a better mood. These ions came in handy a few times during our stay at the much-anticipated Puerto Iguazu... First, there's our hostel. We got put on a rickety bunk bed and the whole 8x8 room smells like mildew. Second, to see the famous Iguazu Falls, we had to elbow our way through a kilometer-long crowd of nametag-wearing tourists. Like the khaki shorts,...

Mar 9, 2013 - Iguazu Falls

Up early as we want to be at the falls about opening time at 8AM. We are on the first train that takes us all the way to Grande de Diablo. After getting off the train it is a ¾ mile walk each way. Hats of to Pat. Even though her legs are hurting a lot, she was determined to make it there and back and she did. Spectacular sights today. We were thinking of taking out a loan and going to Brazil tomorrow to see the falls ($USD 300) per person for 5 hours, but decided that the views from the Argentina side were great and we were not going to...

Mar 8, 2013 - Iguazu Falls

Today we head to Iguazu Falls with a stop at San Ignacio for a visit to an old Mission Ruins. We have been told that there is a good campground, “Americano”. We are told that there are two other groups of motorhomes going to be there, both groups are operated by a company from Germany-Uruguay. One group is approximately 8 rigs and they have been on the road since mid November and the other group (French) have been on the road since late November. Bot groups end about the same time we do. Most everyone in the other groups has their own rig,...

Feb 6, 2013 - Buenos Aires to Puerto Iguazu/Foz do Iguacu

Hello again, 20 hours of the least comfortable bus yet and we made it to Puerto Iguazu, site of South Americas largest waterfalls. Once our room was ready we ventured out for a quick bite to eat and then it was off to see the falls. We arrived at the park and made our way towards the top. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that a train took us most of the way up and we were soon on the path out to the edge of the falls. We walked over a number of bridges spanning the various rivers leading up to the falls and soon heard the roar of...

Aug 18, 2012 - Iguazu

Nous voilà déjà à notre dernière étape en Argentine : Puerto Iguazu. C'était aussi une des meilleure. La ville a une triple frontière avec le Brésil et le Paraguay et c'est ici que l'on peut voir les chutes d'Iguazu. Nous pensions à la base y rester 3 jours, 2 jours pour voir les chutes du coté argentin et 1 jour du coté brésilien. Finalement, nous sommes restés une semaine et nous sommes allés voir les chutes juste un jour du coté argentin. Le spectacle était impressionnant mais il y avait beaucoup trop de monde. C'était terrible, on...

May 14, 2012 - Argentina - Puerto Iguazu

Stayed 3 nights in "Hostel Sweet Hostel". Motofest (motor bikes) all weekend. We saw some amazing machines, motor bike stunts, and live music. This was free and in the streets of the town. Spent a day at Iguazu Falls from this side. We liked this side best because you got so close to the falls. Wait till you get the photos - wow! We had a boat ride up to one of the falls and got soaked! Walked to different view points. When we stopped to eat our mango some beautiful blue birds flew down to us for a bite of food. Here also we saw lots of...

Mar 13, 2011 - Puerto Iguazu

We flew from Rio to Puerto Iguazu on the 11th March. That night we went out for our first Argentinian steak and to taste test some local malbecs before having an early night. On the 12th we went to the Argentinian side of Iguazu Falls, where we spent the day wandering around the 270+ waterfalls in the area and doing a speed boat trip under two of them. I got stung by a bee at the Devil's Throat so our day was cut a bit short. After resting up at home for a bit we went out for steak two - to one of the best restaurants in the city. We had...

Sep 4, 2010 - Argentina - Puerto Iguazu

Dear all, Hope all good back home, and all Bestival people had a brilliant (and rain free?) time. And huge congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Amis - we were so sorry to miss what looks like a beautiful wedding. Last time we wrote, we were recovering from Tango exertions in Buenos Aires. From there we got a long but pretty luxurious bus (fully reclining seats, personal TVs and champagne!) to Iguazu Falls on the border between Argentina and Brazil. For my birthday we treated ourselves to a few nights in an actual hotel (rather than...

Nov 20, 2009 - Puerto Iguazu - Iguazu Falls, Argentina

We took a 20 hour bus journey from Buenos Aires to Puerto Iguazu and almost the whole way we experienced torrential rain and sheet lightning - as a result we saw a lot of flooded fields along the way. However, shortly before we got to Puerto Iguazu the rain cleared up and when we got off the bus we were instantly hit by the heat and humidity, so much so that you begin sweating straight away without even doing anything! By the time we carried our bags to our hostel we were certainly glad for a cold shower and the air conditioned room! The...

WOW!! first we took a walk on a long catwalk leading over the Iguazú river straight to the "devil's throat"... some massive power right there... amzing! and afterwards we took a chilled trip in a little boat over the river... mind the fashionable bright orange life-jackets!! ... very hot!
