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.
