Flag of Brazil  , Parana,
Tuesday, July 17, 2012

After a long drive from paraty to Sao paolo and then a flight to foz de iguacu we arrived to the next sensational part of our tour, to see the amazing iguazu falls.

The falls straddle the Argentinian and Brazilian borders, it is made up of around 275 falls in a j shape.

We headed out via bus to the brazilian side of the falls. We arrived around noon and the line was really big!! One thing we have learnt is that people are pretty pushy, especially in lines!

We hopped on a bus and then got off to do the short walk to see the falls on the Argentinian side before reaching the main lookout of devils throat ( best seen on the Brazilian side). On the walk we also saw some monkies and south American coati (they try to eat everyone's food!)

The brazilian side gives a great view of the whole falls (broken up in two different spots) its a great way to get an idea of just how big the falls are and how far they expand.

To see this side of the falls only half a day is required, depending on lines etc but it's certainly worth it. At the end of the walk, you can go out onto a platform over the water to see the devils throat (the main fall best known).

On the way our we decided to checkout how much a helicopter ride would be, only $100us per person for 10 mins (a bargain compared to home), so without hesitation we headed up! Kat got the front seat next to the pilot so really enjoyed the views! Was well worth the money, a magnificent way to appreciate the grandeur of the falls!

We then headed over the border to Argentina and meet up with our fab friends from rio for a great steak dinner and amazing red wine!
