Salinas Grandes is the largest salt flat in Argentina covering an area of 8,290 km2. It is of industrial importance for the sodium and potassium that are mined and the valuable Lithium it contains. Be sure to check out the artisans who sell an assortment of salt carvings and explore the surrounding desert where you can hug a cactus
Repel down a Waterfall
A number of companies in Iguazu offer waterfall repelling/zipline tours. Guests are picked up at their hotels and brought into the jungle aboard a large open-air truck. After getting geared up, they kick start the adrenalin on a tree to tree zipline. Then they are brought to a small waterfall where they learn how to repel down it. No experience is required – anyone with a sense of adventure and some guts can do it.
Located on the boarder of Brazil and Argentina, Iguazu Falls divide the river into the upper and lower Iguazu. Consisting of 275 falls along a stretch of 2.7 kilometers, two thirds of the falls are within Argentine territory. The majority of the individual falls are about 64 meters in height with some reaching up to 82 meters. The most impressive fall is the U-shaped Devil's Throat at 82 meters high, 150 meters wide and 700 meters long
Regular city buses run to Iguazu National Park where you can take a boat tour and get up close and personal with the falls. Be sure to pack your bathing suit because you are guaranteed to get soaked.
