We arrived into Lima from the Amazon Jungle and transferred to our hotel where we were given rooms to shower rest and repack before transferring to the airport for our to flight Iguazu Falls via Buenos Aires. On our arrival in BA we were met and transferred from the International Terminal to the Domestic which took around 1 hour quite a distance between airports. On arrrival we only had about 30 minutes wait before boarding our flight to Puerto Iguazu where we will spend the next 3 days visiting the falls. This is what I call the grand finale of the trip, it is a wonderful way to relax and take in this spectacular World Heritage site. We were met by out guide Ari and transferred to the Sheraton Hotel which is the only hotel situated inside the National Park. The sight which layed before us when we arrived was amazing, a full panorama view of the falls from every aspect.
The afternoon we took an 8klm vehicle ride among the Yacaratia trail. Then it was a 6klm navigation by boat through the narrow Lower Iguazu River including 2klms of rapids. These speedboats offer views from inside Devil’s Throat Canyon and wet close up to the Argentine side approaching the San Martin Waterfall, 2nd largest in the group of 234 falls. This afternoon I was greeted by my husband who had just flown in from Sydney. After Iguazu Falls we will embark on a 2 week adventure of Argentina which will take in Salta, Cafayate, Purmamarca, Iruya and Buenos Aires. So stay tunned into my blog for the next 2 weeks, hopefully I will not have any problems getting onto the net.
The next morning of our 3 day stay at the Sheraton we travelled to the Brazil side of the falls to get another, even more spectacular view of the falls. The afternoon was spent exploring this wonderous site, every corner you came around there was another even more amazing waterfall. In the evening we were presented with a fabulous dinner and show of performers from Peru, Uraquay, Paraquay, Argentina and Brazil. A great night to end what has been an amazing tour of 3 countries in Sth America, mosttly in Peru, a taste of Argentina and a blink of Brazil.
Thanks to all my group who have been absolutely fabulous throughout this trip. Not once was anyone late arriving for our sightseeing tours. Thanks to our wonderful guide Dianna who was a great support to myself and certainly made my job very easy.
Until next time Adios from Lyn
