Iguazu National ParkMay 22nd, 2009 | Posted by in 14-Argentina
Right on the border of Brazil and Argentina lies the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Iguazu National Park. Some 275 waterfalls plunging from heights up to 80m in an awesome, deafening display.
A hectic day getting around the park, 6 hours pretty much non stop. So much to see: the Upper and Lower Circuit Trails, San Martin Island and the mighty Garganta del Diablo Trail which hosts the mother of all waterfalls and it’s what people are referring to when they say the Iguazu Falls.
Water aside, the 55,000 hectare park is a natural wonderland of sub-tropical rainforest with over 2,000 plant species, 400 bird species and many mammals and reptiles. We got a fair few out of focus shots of some unusual animals but seen plenty plenty more on our way around.
The boffs take in the waterfalls from both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides. Not us, one was enough. At the end of the day you have pictures of waterfalls from every angle, as you’ll see below, do you need more? In all it was a great day out and well worth the £6 entrance fee.
