Iguazu Falls are on the list of "things to do" and rightly so, with 275 individual falls and over 2.5km wide the Falls are incredibly impressive. They are also in the running for one of the New 7 Natural Wonders of the World and i have a feeling they'll get a lot of votes. Who couldn't be overwhelmed and excited about this place
We caught the local bus to the falls and paid our $80 peso entrance and took one of the boat tours to take us into the falls, about as up close and personal as you can get without throwing yourself into the water.
Soaking wet but very happy we climbed off the boat and watched as others were subjected to the water. As we dried off we started to climb to take in more views of the falls. The park is really well set up with a series of walkways and trails to allow you different views of the falls.
The main attraction on the Argentinan side is the Gargantua del Diablo. This is where the river converges into a semi circle and simply drops away into nothing 100's of feet below.
So my last day in Argentina was spent in a rather special way and this is my final entry from Argentina. Tomorrow i will be in Brasil ready to start a whole new adventure .. in Portugese! Eeeeeek!
