to Iguazu Falls

I didn't photoshop in the clouds. 🙂 It was a beautiful day.


The Panoramic View

Iguazu Falls, an indigenous name translated to ‘The Great Water’, is one of the world’s largest waterfalls, also recently named as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Nature definitely did a miracle to this place. These famous falls in the Iguazu National Park has more than 270 falls, with the most famous one being the Devil’s Throat, 80-meter-high and 150-meter-wide.

A few things I like, are the trails’ immersion within the lush green vegetation, a big thumb up for the park’s commitment to nature’s preservation. Also, the leading of the different trails, give options to see the falls in different angels: close enough to get sprayed, far enough to see the magnificent of it all, or low enough that we can take a speedboat right to the fall. Yes, for 100 pesos ($25), we get driven into the icy-cold falls a few times until our adrenaline level is shooting through the roof, our teeth chattering and grinding. It was well worth it. What else is worth it? Staying at the Sheraton, one of the two hotels in the park with the falls view at a close range and a beautiful outdoor swimming pool.
