As soon as Brian and I secured our travel plans and decided we’d be traveling to both Argentina and Brazil we knew right away that we wanted to visit Iguazu Falls. Iguazu Falls is one of the Natural Seven Wonders of the World and it’s also the massive waterfall that forms the border that separates Argentina and Brazil. Upon seeing Iguazu Falls Eleanor Roosevelt, the first lady of the United States, said, “Poor Niagara!” We knew we couldn’t miss something so stunning that it put Niagara Falls to shame.
One option is to see Iguazu Falls with a tour group and to use a local travel agency like 01Argentina.com run by Pablo Polito.
Whenever possible, it is nice to book with local travel agencies because smaller companies offer personalized experiences and the local guides know much more about the area. It is also nice to pick the brain of a tour guide, not just about the area you are touring but also about other places to travel in their country, their favorite restaurants and cultural norms.
An Iguazu tour package includes flights, a hotel room, the Iguazu tour and all transfers. You will arrive in Puerto Iguazu on the Argentinean side of the falls and settle into a beautiful hotel room at the Saint George Hotel. If it is muggy outside you can spent a lot of time in the hotel pool before heading out into Puerto Iguazu for dinner. Puerto Iguazu is a great little town that caters to travelers.
The next day you will board the bus for a full-day excursion of the Argentinian side of the falls. Your guide will be extremely well educated about the area and the falls. You will be given this great Iguazu National Parks map that will allow you to get a lay of the land before even arriving at the National Park.
The falls are absolutely amazing. It’s hard to explain the power and beauty of Iguazu Falls in words so pictures can do the talking:
After a long and wonderful day of visiting the falls you will return to your room at the Saint George Hotel, take another dip in the pool, and then head out to dinner with others in our tour group who will likely become friends.
