Puerto Iguazu

I am not sure why there are so many who proclaim that the falls need one and one half day to see, perhaps if you want to stop and take rests, eat, enjoy all the sights, read a book, and that sort thing then yes, it takes that time, but for me, this was accomplished within 5 – 6 hours. Amazing place, yes, but two day to see it from both sides, no! Not unless you are myopic.

Of course, I did not walk the trails, but took the train instead. I did however enjoy the fun safari ride where we got drenched twice as the boat captain insisted on dipping us into two different falls. I guess that this is indeed a part of what we paid for – that ‘safari adventure.’

On the border crossing issue, if you take a taxi from Puerto Iguazu and cross over the bridge that separates Argentina from Brazil, you only have Argentina’s customs to worry about. There are no customs for Brazil. The cost of the taxi is $220AR, he waits for you for 3 hours, and returns you to your hotel, with a brand new stamp in your passport, no need to pay any visa for Brazil. In fact, you never even encounter an immigration point for Brazil.

More on the details of the Iguazu trip coming soon…………….

  1. Te dije que estas Cataratas eran extraordinarias y que al lado de las del Niagara nada tienen que hacer.
    Amor , este finde voy a leer y ver todo tu Travelinglite. Por lo poco que vi , es hermoso. Tanto como tu … y voy a compartir este Poema de mi Libro ” Piadosa Herejía ” que he presentado en Cartagena de Indias este Agosto pasado :

    Deshielo.

    Como un desierto polvoroso
    se desvanece
    el dolor de tu mordisco,

    fui como durazno..
    en tus labios
    abrigo en tus senos

    he desertado luego
    de la ultima batalla
    sin espada

    deje tu pecho
    clavada con espinas
    la rosa , el odio , la pena…

    y esas ansias de entenderte
    se ahogo
    en mi garganta …como hielo.
