Jan 5, 2007 - Puerto Iguazu, Argentina

Unlike our other long distance bus journeys to date, the 16 hour journey from Buenos Aires to Puerto Iguazú was a breeze! Unlike the Don Otto service (or lack of), Via Bariloche was fast and comfortable and provided on-board meals just like an airplane. We were given a hot dinner and as much wine as we could drink! Plus, the seats were spacious 'cama' seats that recline to an almost horizontal position. They even had decent films in English! At last, we were getting to experience some of the famous Argentine bus service that we had heard so...

Dec 23, 2006 - Iguazu Falls (including 2 extra youtube video links at the bottom)

Pictures will be posted soon. By having been to Niagara Falls, you think you've seen it all? (a dramatic uber-queer scoff) Iguacu Falls....is much more huge, exponentially bigger. Met up with 2 deutsche (German) guys...and Florian/Petra from Austria/Finland. I am finally in Iguazu Falls. It is celestial, godzillastic. Met up with 2 deaf Germans, Chris and Chris, once again. We decided to pay $90 Argentine Pesos ($30 US dollars) for a quick boat tour, including a swift maneuver under Salto San Marin, the second biggest waterfall at Iguazu...

Dec 5, 2006 - Paa graensen til Brasilien - og hjemrejse

Saa- det er ved at vaere tid til sidste indlaeg - formentlig. Vi sidder ved jordens overflade igen - det er godt for konditionen af komme fra 4000 meter til faa hundrede, og det giver ogsaa temperaturen en ny dimension. Her ved Iguazu- vandfaldene hvor vi har vaeret et par dage er dagstemperaturen mellem 33 og 37 grader - fugtig varme vel at maerke. I gaar brugte vi hele dagen ved vandfaldene i den Argentinske nationalpark. Paa den anden side af floden ligger Brasilien - som har en tilsvarende park, men en anden udsigt - saa der har vi...

Nov 26, 2006 - Headed for Iguazu Falls (Argentian side)

Well were off in just a couple of hours to the falls. Our bus leaves at 7 tongight and it's a good 17 hours to get there. I think we booked the mid class bus....so hopefully we will be able to sleep. We should have sprang for the first class....but gotta save some cash where you can....as long as there are no crying babies all should be good. We have a two day tour booked of the falls. The first day is the Argentian side and the second day is the Brazilian side. We were able to get into the HI hostel at Iguazu (they are always booked up)...

FATH WORLD TOUR!

Nov 7, 2006 - PUERTO IGUAZU, Argentina

After arriving at the soon to be replaced shabby bus depot we tried in the heat to ring the local HI to book a room for the night. Unfortunately the number in the Lonely Planet connected us to a different hostel, which we discovered later was also listed in the guide with the same number. Eventually we bit the bullet and got a taxi to the the HI. Of course the driver took us somewhere else first, a "friend's" hotel that was cheaper then the HI. It was a farily dark and dusty place and when I asked the Argentine owner what was for breakfast...

Nov 5, 2006 - Puerto Iguazu And Parque Nacional Iguazu, Argentina

Iguazu Falls in northeast Argentina straddles the border between Brazil and Argentina. It's one of the great natural wonders of the world (The falls were featured prominently in the James Bond movie Moonraker). From Buenos Aires, it can be reached by a 16 hour overnight bus. There are numerous bus companies, so choosing is pretty much random. I selected Via Bariloche (126 pesos, $42) as its buses looked on the newer side. The executive buses are air conditioned, clean and comfortable, with large reclining airline style seating (similar in...

Oct 30, 2006 - Foz Do Igacu (Igacu Falls) -

This is the next place I'm heading to on Wednesday (02/11/2006). I have been told it is absolutely amazing and beautiful. I am very excited as I get the chance to head over to Argentina and Paraguay. I'm not sure about heading to Paraguay though as thieves are common. My bus leaves Porto Alegre Wednesday night and I have a 13 hour bus journey to get to my destination...Meu Deus!! Will check back in next Monday with photos. A bit of info on the falls: Igacu falls are waterfalls of the Iguazu River located on the border of the Brazilian state...

HELENA IN BRAZIL

Aug 18, 2006 - Iguazu Falls Northern Argentina

After taking a very painful 18 hour bus ride from Buenos Aires to northern Argentina we finally arrived in the small town of Iguazu falls. It was a rough bus ride because there was a family sitting right behind us that didn't have any concept of other people around them who were trying to sleep. We paid a little extra to take a bus where the seats can recline so besides that it would have been a nice trip. The town was pretty touristy and had a lot of hotels/hostels. We found a nice one that did our laundry and gave us a lot of advice for...

Jul 28, 2006 - Iguazu Drips

We arrived at puerto Iguazu bus station first thing in the morning on what has got to be the best overnight bus so far - National Express could learn a thing or two. Again we havent really got a particular place in mind and were open to offers so when a seedy looking bloke approaches us offering a cabana ie a self contasined apartment for 35 pesos (7 sterling) a night we say we'll have a look. Its perfect with double bed, cable tv, kitchen and shower and a little living room. It really pays just to turn up sopmetimes and see what bites it...

Jul 21, 2006 - Iguazu Falls (22-24/06/06)

Les chutes d'eau d'Iguazu, au nord de l'Argentine, à cheval entre le Brésil et l'Argentine, le Rio Iguazu formant la frontière entre ces deux pays, sont vraiment immenses et magnifiques. Le débit énorme du Rio Iguazu, qui peut aller jusqu'à 13000 mètres cubes d'eau par seconde pendant la saison des pluies, se déverse d'une hauteur de 75m, en 275 chutes réparties sur une largeur de 3km. La plus grande de ces chutes est la "gorge du diable" (Garganta del Diablo), qui engloutit une grande partie de ce débit dans un bruit assourdissant et...

Jul 17, 2006 - The Trip up to Puerto Iguazu

From Posadas we made the final part of the trek up to Puerto Iguazu, by the Iguazu Falls. On the way we stopped off at San Ignacio Mini, where there are the ruins of a Jesuit Mission - there were a lot of Jesuit Missions in this region of Argentina, which is named after them - Missiones. The Jesuits would move in and then try to spread God's word amongst the locals, but they were eventually beseiged by both Spaniards and Portuguese because they thought they were getting too powerful, and were exiled, the remains at San Ignacio Mini are the...

Geraint's World Trip

Jul 12, 2006 - Iguazu Falls

Iguazu was incredible and we have over 200 pictures to prove our loyalty to this beautiful natural wonder (we think this is one of the natural seven wonders of the world, but we're not sure). Que suerte! We were lucky enough to arrive on a clear, cloudless day and visit the infamous Devil's Throat. Think: Niagra in the shape of a horseshoe. Our luck held out for the full moon hike (which is only offered during the three nights surrounding the full moon, go figure). The train leading us to the falls brought remnants of the jungle tour at...
