Iguaçu Falls

Will be arriving at the Falls on Wednesday November 7 and stay for 4 nights on the Brazilian side. Expect to take buses to the Argentinian side to explore the falls there as well on the Brazilian side.
We have a great hotel, 15 walk to Bus Station or 5 minutes to a few local restaurants with outside seating.
Day 1 cloudy with some rain but we went to the falls on the Brazilian side, Day 2 visited the Birthpark on the Brazilian side - all by local buses. Saturday, our last full day we take a tour to the Argentinian side - visiting the falls, walk upper and lower trails and take a boat under the falls. Sunday off to Rio by plane.

Iguazu Falls, in Iguazu River, are one of the world's largest waterfalls. They extend over 2,700 m (nearly 2 miles)  in a semi-circular shape.  Of the 275 falls that collectively make up Iguassu Falls, "Devil's Throat" is the tallest at 80 m in height. Iguazu Falls are on the border between the Brazilian state of Paraná and the Argentine province of Misiones, and are surrounded by two National Parks (BR/ARG). Both are subtropical rainforests that are host to hundreds of rare and endangered species of flora and fauna.
