Iguazu waterfalls

Here is the last blog for 2016 and with this I would like to wish all of you a great 2017 - lets make it a good one. This story is a bit older as well. Just before we left Brazil we visited the waterfalls of Iguazu. The waterfalls are between Brazil and Argentina. The Brazilian side is great to get a good over view but to get up, close and personal you have to visit the Argentinian side. We did this with Nestor - a tour guide recommended by our guesthouse. I would highly recommend this. Not only does it make the transportation way easier but he also keeps the groups to a maximum of 5 people which makes it more flexible and you don't have to fight for your place to see the falls (which you have to when going with a tourbus with 50+ passengers). He takes pretty much care of everything including the entrance fees and getting you over the border and back into Brazil. Message me if you want his contact details. 

On our tour we were joined by a couple from Ecuador and Silvestri - a Spanish guy who stayed in Brazil just over 6 months. He was a really fun guy and a very dedicated model. He joined us on a speedboat ride that takes you straight underneath the falls - and experience that you shouldn't miss. Don't expect to stay dry though. The operator supplies you with dry bags for your electronics, phones or whatever you carry that shouldn't get wet, believe me it is absolutely necessary. We got wet to the bones but the experience was fantastic. Just to feel the power of the water is a one in a lifetime experience. The waterfalls are hard to describe. It is not the highest falls 9just up to 80meters) in the world but certainly the one with most water. The falls are falling over a few cascades and the most impressive area is the devils throat at the top of the falls. Certainly worth a visit!

In our next update we are telling you about Chile and the first days on the bike - so stay tuned or sign up for the newsletter at the bottom of this page :)
