9 Million Litres per Second
Wikipedia says, "legend has it that a serpent god planned to marry a beautiful woman named Naipi, but she fled with her mortal lover in a canoe. In a rage, the serpent god sliced the river to create the waterfalls and condem the lovers to an eternal separation". Not exactly a fairytale ending.
(Was Amazing Iguazu)
Day 1 - Puerto Iguazu
You're in the middle of a rainforest, sitting at a cafe on the side of the road, drinking Quilmes beer and not thinking about your job. Doesn't get much better.
- Explore the border town of Puerto Iguazu
- Perhaps swing by some souvenir shops or one of the great local restaurants
Day 2 - Iguazu Falls - Puerto Iguazu
Imagine the sound of 275 different waterfalls throwing themselves down cliffs stretching 2.7km. Yep, it's just like that, only louder.
- Visit the Iguazu Falls National Park
- Have your trip enhanced by an English-speaking local site guide
- View Iguazu Falls - one of the most impressive in the world - from the Argentinean side
- Perhaps take a boat trip up the Devil's Throat
- Explore the area under your own steam and return to Puerto Iguazu when you please
Day 3 - Puerto Iguazu
Spend today getting acquainted with some Argentinean food. Empanadas (pastry filled with stuff like spinach, cheese, mushrooms, ground beef, chicken or seafood), milanesa (sort of a schnitzel), dulce de leche (liquid caramel), ravioli and steak should all be on the list.
- The trip ends today after breakfast, though you can opt to visit the Brazilian side of the falls if you want to see more
