Wanderlust: Iguazu Falls, Argentina/Brazil








When Eleanor Roosevelt first laid eyes on Iguazu Falls she said, "Poor Niagara". I've never been to Niagara Falls (or Iguazu Falls), but from my limited experience visiting waterfalls (the most impressive being Akaka Falls in Hawaii), I can say that even just one waterfall that is 100 feet high is an amazing sight to behold.

Iguazu Falls is an impressive series of waterfalls that spreads across both Brazil and Argentina. I can't imagine the feeling of being at Iguazu Falls, with thousands of feet of water crashing down at heights of up to 270 feet. Scary. Amazing. Breathtaking. Wild. I don't know what I'd call it, but I'm pretty sure it's pretty inspiring.

I just visited Iguazu Falls in August for the first time - they are the most spectacular thing I've ever seen. It's impossible to imagine what 14 miles of waterfalls even looks like! I highly recommend going to visit!

The Iguazu falls of Argentina are just amazing. There was an excursion there that you could do if you wanted that was with this rubber boat that takes you to sail on the river of the falls and then you can get really close to the main fall. It is excting, but you have to be prepared to get wet! It is in that excursion that I met a guy who said I had to go to the capital because even thought there was not as much nature as there was in Misiones, the city had many cultural attractions to offer. He even told me where to get a Buenos Aires rent without spending much money!
