At the intersection of Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay, lies one of the natural wonders of the world. The falls of Iguazu draws visitors from all over the globe, and for good reason. The beauty of this place surpasses anything that mankind could ever hope to create.
The seemingly innumerable waterfalls are awe-inspiring to view from afar. On the Argentinian side, a network of trails penetrate the surrounding jungle and offer many vantage points in which to appreciate their splendor. But an even more intense way to experience Iguazu is to take a speedboat tour under the falls.
The Iguazu sun is punishingly hot and the air is oppresingly humid. Therefore, standing close enough to the falls to feel their moisture is refreshing!
Getting to Puerto Iguazu, Argentina, had been a 20 hour journey by bus from Buenos Aires. Therefore it was quite a contrast when the quick act of crossing a bridge by public bus landed me in a completely different country. With Iguazu in my rearview and the unknown lying in wait, I entered the gigantic nation of Brazil.
