This morning after breakfast, we will be visiting the Argentine side of Iguazu Falls, the biggest in the world and consist of 272 falls of various sizes along a 2.7 km stretch of the Iguazu River. Many of the waterfalls merge together, sending water crashing down over the cliffs, which form the shape of a horseshoe and tower up to a height of 85 metres. Although perhaps not as famous as Niagara Falls in North America the Iguazu Falls are both bigger and more impressive. The volume of water flowing through Niagara is an impressive 2.8 million litres per second, but this is dwarfed by the flow at Iguazu, which reaches a staggering 6.5 million litres per second. It is said that when she saw Iguazu for the first time, former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt blurted: “Niagara is just a dripping tap …” Iguazu is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

We cross the bridge that links the Argentine town of Puerto Iguazu and the Brazilian town of Foz do Iguazu. Following a mandatory customs check, we continue on our way into the national park.

Most of the waterfalls are on the Argentine side, but the view is best from the Brazilian side, as it provides many different angles from which to view the falls. For example, there is a lift up to a viewing platform that provides a fantastic perspective on the Devil’s Throat – enshrouded in the mist from the falls themselves. On the paths, we also have a good chance of spotting the small ring-tailed coati, inquisitively following in our footsteps.

We then travel to the airport  Foz do Iguazu where you catch your flight to Rio de Janeiro.

Welcome to Brazil. Upon arrival in Rio De Janeiro, clear immigration, collect your baggage and follow sign for exit.
