Iguazu Falls

Recently we were lucky enough to visit one of the greatest natural wonders of the world: the Iguazu Falls! Shared by Brazil and Argentina, this set of waterfalls is a natural beauty almost impossible to imagine. We spent our experience on the Argentinian side. A short 30 minute ride on a local bus brought us to the front of the national park. Once inside, you can choose from several hikes that show off different angles of the stunning falls. We did them all in about 5 hours.

The first waterfall we saw is called the Garganta del Diablo (in Spanish) or Devil’s Throat. To get here we took a train and then walked for another kilometer. Devil’s Throat is an incredibly loud and impressive waterfall where about half of the river falls into a narrow chasm with a drop of about 250 feet. As the water falls it sprays into the air creating a mystical white fog. Mesmerizing!

After the Devil’s Throat we went to see the rest of the waterfalls from every different angle we could. They are all really amazing, one of our favorites!
