What can I say about the world-famous Iguazu Falls? Well – they deserve to be famous – they are awesome! We spent the day on the Argentinean side, and it’s really well set up. It is extremely busy with tourists, especially in certain areas – but it’s got quiet parts as well.
Despite the large number of visitors, this was one of the best places we have visited. There are 2 walking trails allowing views of the falls from different angles, plus a walkway right to the edge of ‘the devil’s throat’ – ooooh sounds scary eh? (not an actual throat though – but a very impressive part of the falls)
There’s also a 7km return nature trail through the jungle where you can look for wildlife, and you can take a boat over to an island in the river for a different view of the falls (only if the river level is not too high – it was, so we couldn’t go over)
It’s all in the jungle, and there is quite a bit of bird and animal life around – WHAT MORE COULD ANYONE WANT! 🙂
The pictures of the actual falls don’t really do it justice (or we are bad photographers!), but here we go anyway….
