Puerto Iguazu

The day after visiting the spectacular Iguazu Falls in Argentina, I decided to rest in the morning and then, in the afternoon, I went  for a walk to “Hito tres fronteras“. This is the place where Argentina has borders with Paraguay and Brazil.  It was a pleasant walk and a lot less frantic than the previous day´s activity.

Enjoying the walk back to town again afterwards, I was rewarded with a reminder that there is more to Iguazu than the falls.

Continuing the account of my visit to Iguazu Falls, which is Argentina, on the borders with Paraguay and Brazil

After the great boat ride with, Nestor, on the Eco Tour, it was back to the cataratas.

After a spot of lunch, it was on to the powerboat ride into the falls. But first, a ride through the jungle to get to the embarkation point.

I have video footage of the boat ride into the falls but can´t upload it at this time. The connection here is too slow.

After the boat ride I walked back along part of the route the boat had taken and then left the falls feeling exhausted. I was there for 10 hours and it was a full on day for me.

 

 

 

Iguazu Falls

From San Carlos de Bariloche, I travelled by bus to Puerto Iguazu via Buenos Aires. A journey of more than 40m hours. Although it was a long journey, it did give me a great perspective of Argentina. The sheer size of the country, plus the variety of the ever changing landscape. I was also content as I was nearing the last destination on my current list of places to visit. Lucky me!!

Iguazu Falls is truly a “wonder of the world”.

From the Devil´s Throat, I made my way to the next part of my trip, which was to be the “Eco Tour”. There were some distractions along the way.

My good fortune continued as I was the only person to turn up for this particular boat ride. Too many people usually means, too much noise and as consequence, not much to see. Not so with just me and my guide/boatman on board.
