We flew to Iguazu from Buenos Aires this morning and just arrived in Puerto Iguazu (the Argentinian side). We are staying at the Iguazu Jungle Lodge which seems like it is in the middle of the jungle but apparently it is on the edge of town and a 10 minute walk from civilization. We are sitting on our private deck listening to some water falls (not the big ones) while we catch up on email and try to make a plan.
Iguaza has some of the largest waterfalls in the world. I heard someone say it is about 10 times the size of Niagra Falls. You can view them from both the Argentinian side and the Brazilian side. Everyone says it is amazing… We are going to go find out.
It is very overcast and moist right now. It is slated to rain a lot this evening and we are trying to decide what to do. I think we may get a driver to take us to the Sheraton hotel up at the falls and have dinner there. They are suppose to have a great view from the dining room.
We are trying to set up a tour of the Hydro plant. It is the biggest one in the world. The dam is 5 miles across. The river is the second biggest in South America after the Amazon. Exciting!
