We weren´t expecting too much from Foz as everyone had said that the Argentinian side was better but we ended up having a great time there. The weather was rubbish but we headed to the national park anyway. As we walked along the trail the waterfalls got bigger and better until the massive Devil´s Throat at the end. We had a bit of trauma when a racoon quarti thing chased me, attacked my bag and stole my banana but apart from that the day was good. The rain stopped as well which was a bonus. That evening we all went bowling, it was nice to do something like that even though I was a bit rubbish!
The next day we crossed the boarder and found a hostel in Puerto Iguazu. The Argentinian side was much busier and more touristy, we had to stay in a different hostel to Stina and David because everywhere was full. It was sad to see a lot of kids begging on that side, they`re really cute as well so it`s hard to say no. We had our first Argentinian steak and wine that night and headed to the falls again the next day.
In Argentina you walk out over the top of the devil`s throat. The view is spectacular and the sound of the water is amazing but there were a lot of tour groups. It didn`t feel as personal as on the Brazilian side as people kept pushing in to take photos. We followed another trail while we were there across some of the smaller falls which was pretty and then headed back as Stina and David were going back to Brazil.
We spent an extra day in Iguazu doing laundry and stuff, it was great to have clean clothes! However it meant that we then couldn`t get on any buses as they were all full for Easter. We ended up booking a trip to Posadas, the capital of the region, as it was the only bus that had space. Random but the guidebook says it should be nice!
