What a fantastic change in scenery, Puerto Iguazu is incredibly lush and green, a complete contrast to dry and dusty north west Argentina and Bolivia
Our day to visit the Iguazu Falls had finally arrived, we'd looked forward to seeing the Falls for many months. First stop on our tour on Parque Nacional Iguazu was the biggest and most spectacular cataract, Garganta del Diablo (The Devils Throat). It literally took our breath away, the sheer enormity of it was mind blowing, Nicola and I stood there in silence for a good few minutes before we managed to converse our first words, 'wow'! The amount of water cascading over the drop is unbelievable, you get the feeling a small ocean somewhere is drying up and everything down stream must be flooded, madness.
For nearly 6 hours we wandered around the massive Parque Nacional Iguazu, taking in the smaller cataracts that don't necessarily give you that jaw dropping moment you get at the Garganta del Diablo, however are still very beautiful and worth taking the time to explore
From here we hop across the border to Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil (our final country, booooo) before taking a couple of internal flights to Salvador in Brazil Bahia region. It's a chau to Spanish speaking Latin America and Olá to Portugese!
