Is it possible to get waterfall overdose........ NO!!
Puerto Iguazú, Argentina
The day started having to go back into Argentina, we'd decided to go with a private transfer because this was meant to be the easiest way to cross the border. With over an hour of sitting in our mini bus we started to think we should have taken the local bus. This wouldn't have been a problem but we'd arranged to meet Allie a friend from the Yoga Park (being from the USA meant she had to pay for a Visa for each country she visited, whereas we just got stamped for free!).
On arriving at the park entrance we were surprised by the shear number of visitors compared to our day out on the Brazil side. The tour buses were all lined up as large groups streamed out, all in matching shirts ready to be herded round the park. It felt good to be able to attack the park at our own pace although we still had to join the snaking queue to ride the train that would take us to the falls.
The plan was go straight for the "big money shot" as we had sunshine and were hoping to catch some rainbows over the falls. It was on the walkways over the river out to the top of the devil throat that we finally caught up with Allie (love how that happens) and spent a good hour taking pictures, getting soaked and listening to the thunderous sounds of the water crashing down from under our feet (minimal safety rails in place) with massive smiles on our faces!
We spent the rest of the afternoon exploring the park and the "smaller" falls, even introducing Allie to the UK game of "pooh-sticks", which ended rather abruptly as the small sticks went careering over the 80ft falls. It was another magical day and overall the Argentinean side was more picturesque but the boat trip on the Brazil side won out overall.
