Iguazu/Iguacu Falls

Filed under: Ecuador — lstollin @ 8:47 pm

resized-IMG_1734I was thinking tonight about what to post and realized I’d still never posted but one picture of what is possibly the most beautiful place in South America, Iguazu falls (Foz do Iguacu in Portuguese).  We went there with Joy’s mom and Step-dad in July of this year, and had beautiful weather.  We stayed on the Brazilian side out of habit (we’d spent the last 3 weeks in that country), but when we crossed to Argentina we realized it was a lot cheaper there.

Since the falls are gigantic, and are on the border of Brazil and Argentina, to really see them takes at least two days – and you must visit both sides.  The Brazilian side features sweeping panoramas that capture the magnitude of the huge falls complex, while the Argentine side offers views from above, below, and middle.
