Another long just bearable overnight bus to Iguazu Falls that took two hours longer than planned! I eventually got to my Bambu hostel in Iguazu with a phone that wouldn’t turn on and with very little sleep but the staff were so kind and helpful.
I couldn’t check in yet so I just changed and set on my way to get a local bus to the Iguazu Falls. Luckily I met a lovely American on his last day of his travels on the bus,also going to The Falls.
Only for him O would have had no pictures of my experience of the falls which would have been tragic because when I first caught a glimpse of the falls I was completely amazed!!
Even from afar they are out of this world. I had totally underestimated the size and span of them.
The Brazil side is a self directed trail with the falls being a constant view but be warned there are multiple photo spots where you get drenched from the powerful mist coming from the waterfalls. It only takes a few hours and is very relaxed and easybespecially after lunch which was the time I was there. I will add pics to this post when Jeff, my new American friend, hopefully tags me in some photos.
The following day I took the early day trip from my hostel to The Argentinian side of the falls. This is a lot more expensive and a long,full day out. But absolutely worth it!
There are multiple trails on this tour and also an option of a boat tour which cuh I didn’t take. The lower and upper trail bring you right on.top of the falls.It’s a lot more up close and personal with the falls compared to the Brasil side. We did the Devil’s Throat trail last. Talk.about leaving beet until last! It was like something from a special effects film.
My mind couldn’t take it in. Hasn’t be seen to be believed! My pictures don’t do it any justice. This is a bucket list necessity!
