We left Buenos Aires set for a 20 hour bus ride to our ultimate destination of Iguazu Falls. Iguazu Falls are on the Brazil / Argentina border near Paraguay and is one of the wonders of the world…and we now know why! The falls are not the highest, widest or biggest by water volume, however they have to be the most spectacular waterfalls in the world…they make falls like Niagara look like nothing.

We arrived at the Argentine side to see the falls up close with around 3 million litres of water a second tumbling from the falls. There is little to write except Wow…so enjoy our photos!

The next day we went to the Brazilian side to get a better panoramic view of the falls. We got soaked both days, the spray coming off the falls is incredible and at times it felt like we were walking through a storm! The noise of the water was deafening! After visiting the falls we decided to take a helicopter over the falls for yet another beautiful view of this wonder. Michelle and I were a little nervous to start off with as we had never been in one before but it was an absolutely amazing experience and worth every penny!

Up until now I have never been able to say where has been the most amazing place we have visited….but I don’t think anything can top Iguazu!

Next stop carnival time in Rio!!! Woo hoo!!!! 🙂
