We flew from Panama City over night and arrived in Buenos Aires early in the morning. We had scored an awesome hotel deal on lastminute.com and ended up staying in a downtown hotel for half the price of a hostel. We spent a few days here just wandering around, drinking malbec and eating delicious steak.
One night we also went out to watch a tango show which was amazing and we were on a front row table. Buenos Aires is an awesome city and we both so want to go back again!
From Buenos Aires we took an amazing bus 18 hours to Puerto Iguazu on the border of Brazil. The bus had huge seats, we watched movies and were served food, wine and champagne. Jas loved it so much, that even after 18 hours, he didn’t want to get off!! At Puerto Iguazu, we quickly found a hostel and headed out to the Brazillian side of the falls. It was a speedy process to get over the border and didn’t take long at all to get to the falls. We spent a couple of hours wandering around the tracks, getting lots of different views of the falls and the most impressive of all was right at the end – they have built a platform out over the edge of the falls so you can walk right out and get soaked by them. Amazing. Afterwards, we headed back over to Argentina.
The next day, we checked out the Argentinian side of the falls. You get a totally different view from each side. From Brazil, you get a broad view of the falls and can appreciate the size of them. The Argentinian side is much more up close and personal. You walk out over the top of them, and there are countless tracks going alongside, over and under heaps of falls of varying sizes. We spent most of the day wandering around and loved the place. Iguazu is definately a highlight of the trip so far.
