Iguazu Falls, Argentina

Rainbows and endless waterfalls

Iguacu Falls is a never ending series of over 200 hundred waterfalls boasting the largest curtain of water in the world. We enjoyed all of the many views of the falls while walking the many trails the Argentina side has to offer.

Although the falls were amazing, at some points we felt as though we were in Disneyland with the amount of tourists blocking the narrow boardwalks. We have two tips for future travelers:
1. Go early to ride the free boat out to the island view. They stopped the boat service between 10-11am for the days we were there.
2. Pack a lunch and a book, find a spot to chill during midday and stay until closing time to enjoy the sounds of the falls when it becomes much quieter. Towards the end of the day we could freely move around the park and had most of the boardwalks to ourselves.
3. Get your video camera ready, there are lots of not so smart tourists feeding and petting the wild animals… you never know when one of them will get jumped on and start screaming haha.

The spray of the falls creates rainbows everywhere you look and leads to some amazing photo ops.

Iguazu or Victoria?

by Harry

They are very different in the perspectives that you get from inside the viewing parks. For Victoria, you are able to look directly at the waterfall from the other side of the gorge. For Iguazu, you see it from the side.

Victoria if you are an adrenalin junkie -whitewater rafting, bungie, lions, cheetahs, and of course, sitting in a pool on top of the falls.

But Igauzu has over 200 waterfalls, making it very impressive. I think the pictures of Iguazu are more stunning, yet both falls are just as impressive.
