South America Day 32: Iguazu Falls - Argentina side

January 2012

We had a private guided tour arranged to try and beat the crowds of the bus tours. We drove for about 30 minutes from our hotel to the Brazil/Argentina boarder. We were in line at the park when the gates opened at 9 am and we caught the first train to the Devil's Throat.

These falls are about a 15 minute flat walk from the train and are loud, wet and huge!

After about 30 minutes we caught the train back to the Upper Circuit, walking down through to the lower circuit trail. This was my favourite area, in particular the two sisters falls.

We did the zodiac tour under and around the falls (you will get soaked there is no way around it, try and change beforehand).

The open air trucks took us back up to the main entrance of the park and after a quick lunch returned to the hotel.

That night we Brazilian BBQ for dinner (too much meat!).
