Melissa and I visited Iguazu Falls in Argentina near the end of nine months spent exploring South America. We used Puerto Iguazu as our base and visited Iguazu Falls National Park on three separate days.
It was over our 6th Anniversary weekend and we had been looking forward to relaxing there for four nights. For us Iguazu Falls was a therapeutic respite from the big cities we’d explored such as Santiago, La Paz, and Mendoza. While in Puerto Iguazu we stayed at Iguazu Royal Hotel Posada on Lorenzo 132. We ate our anniversary dinner at JASY on San Lorenzo 154.
Iguazu boasts hundreds of powerful water falls that drop 200 feet or more into powerful pools of spray. Travelers in Iguazu National Park explore on foot, by train, and aboard various types of sea vessels. Some boats deliver thrill seekers into contact with the falls and their sea spray. Jungle and raft tours focus on geology and the environment.
You can explore the park independently and stick to hikes and trails. Tours are available through companies like Iguazu Jungle. Those with higher budgets can arrange cocktail receptions or have private meals on balconies with views of waterfalls. Contact iguazuargentina.com for more information on these parties.
When buying tickets for the park, remember every 2nd day is half priced.-Just get your ticket stamped before you leave on your first day and Remember…don’t feed the animals.
