Iguazu Falls from both sides 7th – 8th October
We arrived in Iguazu in the rain but decided to head to the falls regardless. We figured it would stop raining. It didn’t but we had a great time, lots of giggling and cuddles to keep me warm. The falls are breathtaking and definitely deserve their World Heritage status.
We only stayed one night on the Brazilian side and crossed over to Argentina in the morning. We managed to catch a bus straight off from outside our hostel in Brazil but had to wait for over an hour for the Argentinian connection at the border.
Instead of staying in a hotel we stayed in a cabin which had a kitchen! It was great to cook. Breakfast was particularly delicious, a fruit salad (mango, passion fruit, banana and orange) with yoghurt. Not a piece of white bread to be found! John did all the cooking and I did the washing up. Instead of rushing to the falls we just relaxed and re-charged our batteries. Sadly the mosquitoes were pretty bad in the cabin and the window screens were either holey or non-existent.
When we visited the Argentina side of the falls we were impressed with the infrastructure of the park and the falls were fantastic (again). The weather was great (not as much fun as seeing the falls in the rain though). We did see a wonderful circular rainbow.
