I made my way to the Argentina side on another rainy day. Instead of heading straight to the fall I organised a half day program with Yguaz˙ Extreme. It as a combination of hiking, rock climbing, canopy zip line, tree climbing, abseiling and a boat trip to the junction of Iguaz˙ and Parana Rivers. This is also the junction of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. On the evening the hostel hosted a BBQ and show. The show was Brazilian, there was some Samba dancing and I got pulled out of the crowd to dnace on stage. It must be one of the most embrassing moment given how I have two left feet. I was glad I knew no one there! The hostel I stayed (Hostel-Inn) It is an ex casino that is converted to a hostel. I had a double room for myself with airconditioning and a cable TV. It is much like a mini resort and I would highly recommend it.

Day two, the weather improved, I had booked a Gran Aventura from Iguazu Jungle Explorer. This company operate in the national park and it is possible to organise tour at the park. Gran Aventura consists of a 8 km truck ride to Puerto Macuco Base then a 6km speed boat trip through the Canyon of the Iguassu River where the Devil┤s Throat can be seen, finally the boat approach San Martin Falls to ensure everyone is saturated with water. The whole trip take about an hour and I had the rest of the day to explore the Iguazu Falls. Despite this being the second time in 3 days I have seen the waterfalls I still found it hard not to take photographs from all the different angles. I manged to complete the San Martn Island , Lower, Upper and Devil┤s Throat Circuits for the remaining part of the day. My transport back to the hostel was dued at 4pm so I decided to return the next day for Sendro Macuco.

Tomorrow I will return to Buenos Aires.
