Os Foz do Iguazu

sunny 30 °C

Back to tropical temperatures and humidity! The waterfalls of Iguazu are just amazing and although most people as well as most travel-guides state that the Argentinian side is nicer, I found them both very worth visiting. The Argentinian side might be a bit more spectacular but the Brazilian side has better views on the waterfalls as a whole and hence better picture opportunities.

Although the national park has much of an amusement park and it is packed with tourists, well, too many tourists except for me, it is a must for everyone travelling to the northeast of Argentina, the south of Brazil or to Paraguay. Not only are there the spectacular waterfalls, but if you keep your eyes open a little bit and if you have a bit of luck, you will see a bunch of tropical animals.

Thanks, Jeanie

Have you taken a look at the pics on 'Las Cataratas de Iguazu', too?

by Gitan Jean

went there a couple of months ago and agree they were spectacular...even with the tourist mob! Nice photos...I loved the lizards too...but not the tiger ants or rodent things.

João!
Benvenido! El clima tropical es caliente mismo! Cuando vivi en Campo Grande con Ellen, me quedava casi triste, pensava que el sol se quedava más cierca de la tierra, rs! Eso es el mismo clima de Iguaçu y Assunción. En Santos es un poquito menos caliente, pero llove todo el año!
...Hablando sobre Santos...ainda no me olvidé que tu no fue visitar nosostras en las dos veces que visitaste Brasil, hahahahahahaha!
João, João...haga clases de portugués rápido! Queremoste en Brasil ahora, rs!
Besos, saudades!
