by Rafaela Gunner One of the most popular destinations in Argentina and undoubtedly a candidate for the eighth natural wonder of the world, the Iguazú Falls—or Great Waters in the local guaraní dialect—lie on the triple frontier of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay and draw visitors from all over the world.
Visiting Iguazu Falls is truly an amazing experience: the deafening roar of water sloping over the lip of the 90-meter Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat) and the sight of massive quantities of white froth that defy gravity before hurtling down into distant spray assault your sensory system.
One loses all sense of perspective as you crane over the reedy bars of the walkways that hang in mid-air.
It’s all larger-than-life-stuff.
Go in spring (September, October) as the increasingly hot and dry summers tend to dry them up to a mere trickle at times.

Both were created in 1934 and declared a UNESCO National World Heritage site 50 years later.
The city of Puerto Iguazú lies on the banks of the Parana and Iguazú rivers and is a busy and affluent port town that enjoys a close working relationship with the Brazilian Puerto Meira, over the Brazilian border, and the shopper’s paradise of Ciudad del Este in Paraguay.
The climate is sub-tropical, hot and humid and you need to take plenty of mosquito repellent.
Other not-to-be-missed experiences in the area are the remains of the Jesuit monasteries – remember the movie The Mission.

Into the Fury – Take a Boat Tour Under Iguazu Falls

Into the Fury – Take a Boat Tour Under Iguazu Falls .
by Apr 6, 2007 Do you like to come back from your vacations with bragging rights.
Then take this 15 USD tour and you will get more out of your Iguazu Falls experience than the average tourist.

The Iguazu Falls are tucked away in the forest at the tri-border between Argentina

Brazil, and Paraguay.
When it comes to touring the falls, people’s loyalties lie in one of two camps – those who prefer the Brazilian side and those who prefer the Argentine side of the National Park .

(Everyone agrees you experience nothing fall-related in Paraguay)

While the view of the Devil’s Throat at Iguazu may be more spectacular from the Brazilian platform reached by elevator, the Argentine side offers extensive foot bridges that pass under and above the lips of some of the giant drops.
However, for 15 USD you can take an Iguazu boat ride that will allow you to thumb your nose at the visitors in both countries , as you motor right into the fury of the monstruous falls.
Not only will you get absolutely soaked and feel up close the power of the falls, but you also get bragging rights because no matter how you phrase it the fact that you took a small boat and motored into the dump zone to receive a sheet of water from some of the biggest falls in the world is undeniably sweet.
Tickets for the tour are available at the main entrance to Iguazu National Park on the Argentine side.
The boat ride lasts about fifteen minutes and some of them stop at one of the islands in the gorge.
Afterwards, you are left at a trail that allows you to explore the falls on foot or return to the entrance.
There is an open-top truck tour that is essentially pointless unless you have an open-top truck fetish .

I strongly suggest saving the extra pesos for a Quilmes
