Iguazu River!

The next/last day in Iguazu we went to the Argentina side of the falls. We didn’t really do too much of the paths though, this time it was all about the Grand Adventure. We did the top trail of the falls pretty quickly. 20140727-092451-33891627.jpg

We didn’t really hit the bottom much and got right on to the safari trail (boring) and then the boat ride. I highly, HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who goes to Iguazu. The boat ride is seriously a must. When I came originally we didn’t even see the trail down where you get onto the boat, which is pretty awesome also. So they strapped us into life vests and there was about 30 of us on this pretty tiny boat.

The first time around to the falls we barely got wet and just got the wonderful close up view.

We went back around a second time and got completely SOAKED. Literally the little boat went moatering right next to the falls. Couldn’t get too great of a pic for obvious reasons.

After that we spent a lot of time on the trail from the boat launch back to the regular trails. It was incredible.

After we got our stuff out of the water proof bag, the cookies we had were in pieces. So what else to do then feed them to do coatis?

Iguaçu Falls (Brazilian side)

I went back to Iguazu because Brittany’s mom wanted her to see it if she was going to send her to Argentina. I was more than happy to go back but got skeptical after our rainy trip… But am so happy I did. The Brazil side was much more panoramic and absolutely amazing. The border crossings was easy but annoying, the guide took care of everything. The side was much less explorative and just one trail you followed along. 20140726-174704-64024803.jpg

Iguazu falls (Argentinian side)

We got to Iguazu in the afternoon and the airport was so small, I felt like I was at the Pocono ski lodge. 20140707-081103-29463911.jpg

We got to the hotel and it was crazy. The room was unreal…

It was pouring rain so we ate at the hotel’s fabulous restaurant with glass walls out to the same similar view. We ended up hanging out in the hotel room watching the rain and tv.
All night my mom was saying how she wanted to see monkeys. Especially after we saw this sign…

Monkeys we woke up and saw…

We went to the park pretty early to avoid crowds… It was unlike anything, so magnificent.

There were also these creatures called coati. They were similar to a raccoon but a lot more friendly.

Despite all of this my favorite part of the hotel may have to be the included breakfast buffet, and DIY mimosas bar.
