IGUAZU FALLS

IGUAZU FALLS
Three Days

DAY 1: Arrival in Iguazu Falls
You are met on arrival at the airport and transferred to your hotel. Long before the Spanish explorer Don Alvaro Nuñes reached South America’s greatest waterfall in 1541, the local Indians had named it Iguaçu – meaning great waters. There is no more fitting description, as thousands of visitors to Iguassú each year will testify. Once seen, the falls – all 275 of them – are never forgotten. The two-mile wide curtain of water crashing 300 ft over a series of precipices into a spray-filled gorge constitutes the most spectacular sight of probably the whole of South America.

DAY 2: Iguazu Falls
Explore the falls from the Argentine side. The Iguassu Falls in Argentina have an access with a Visitor Center. The entrance fee includes two train tickets and a boat ride that crosses over to the San Martin Island. The Visitor Center comprises a patio with restaurants, souvenir shops, an amphitheatre and a space dedicated to the Park´s ecosystem. There is also an exhibition of natives who lived in the area during the past centuries. The exhibits are in Spanish only. The train terminal is at Central Station, some 400 mts away from the main gate. Here is where the first leg starts and you can either ride the train or take a 20-minute easy walk along Sendero Verde (green trail). Both ways will get you to Cataratas Station, the starting point of the Upper Circuit. The Upper Circuit is a half-hour walk along a 1200 mts trail – with low degree of difficulty and no stairs – that goes deep into the jungle. All of a sudden, you run into breathtaking views of the Falls. You will get lots of closer views at the different observation points, and more panoramic sights toward the end of the trail. The Lower Circuit requires more physical effort due to its stairs but it can be perfectly done if you take it nice and slow, catching your breath on the different viewpoints. On this trail you will also walk deep into the jungle, crossing streams and coming across local fauna. The Lower Circuit goes all the way down to the river, where the boat crosses over to San Martin Island. On the way down, there are balconies with marvelous bottom-up views of the falls (the same falls that you see from above in the Upper Circuit). If you have any physical impairment, stay away from this last section. The second leg of the train ride leaves from Cataratas Station and goes to Garganta del Diablo Station, a small area with fast foods and toilets. The trail goes across several branches of the upper Iguazu River, deep into the rain forest. Visitors get to watch various kinds of birds – such as beautiful toucans. Garganta del Di ablo (Devil’s throat) is a 70-meter-deep pot where several branches of the Iguazu river converge causing a violent water fall. A balcony set up at the border allows tourists to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
