Most people I’ve met through my Spanish language school AMAUTA are travellers. They come to Buenos Aires, mostly at the start of their journey, to learn or improve their Spanish and after a few weeks they move on to explore other parts of Argentina and some even the rest of Latin America.

I am more of a go-to-somewhere-new-and-hang-out-there-for-a-while kind of girl. I wanted to write my first book here and therefore I arranged for a place to stay for four months because whenever I travel, I get distracted and distraction was not what I thought I needed.

On staying put or travelling and the benefits of a little bit of water

But being among travellers does something to you. It has to do with the remarkable stories, splendid facebook pictures and the sparkle in their eyes when they talk about their adventures. Some of my friends went on extended weekends to the Iguazu waterfalls and/or Uruguay during their time at Amauta and came back beaming. ‘I am here to stay’, I thought at first. ‘No need to leave and get all worked up about a World Heritage Site (Colonia del Sacramento in Uruguay) or the most magnificent cascades of the southern hemisphere.’ But it didn’t last. I succumbed. ‘A trip or two won’t harm me’, I told myself when I booked my trip to Iguazu. And of course it didn’t.

Views 17 Sep Iguazu Waterfalls Argentina

One of the world’s most jaw dropping natural wonders and certainly a major highlight on any Argentinean trip, the Iguazú Falls are simply astounding.

The beauty and sheer energy of the Falls is difficult to convey in words or photographs – you simply have to experience them for yourself.

Iguazu Waterfalls Argentina

The falls located in the northern province of Misiones take about 15hrs by bus to reach from Buenos Aires. The falls are shared by Brazil and Argentina and sit on the border in the Iguazú National Park, 20km from Puero Iguazú on the Argentine side. You should try to visit both sides of the falls as they both offer different views and experiences.

It is not difficult to understand why so many honeymooners choose Iguazu as their destination: a visit of these 2,7 kilometers wide (!) waterfalls provoke such intense emotions, that nothing beats sharing the experience with your loved one.  So, when we were planning our honeymoon to South America, we decided this spot could not be missed. And we would not regret it…

From Buenos Aires we took the plane to Iguazu, Argentina, from where we were taken to our wonderful hotel, right at the Three Borders Landmark, where the Iguazu and Panama rivers merge. Impressive views guaranteed!

To fully experience Iguazu and its national park, you need two days: one to visit the Argentinean side and one (actually half a day) to visit the Brazilian side.  We started off at the Argentinean side. 80% of the waterfalls (there are 275 in total) are located here. The  National Park here is amazing and rough. Here, you really “feel” the waterfalls, as many tracks lead you right above, beneath and along the falls. The “Green Trail”, a walk through the forest, the “Lower Circuit”, the path that leads you into the heart of the falls and the “Upper Circuit”, a walk through the upper falls area, are all truly wonderful.
