The next day we went to the Argentinian side of the falls, which were absolutely magnificent. We rode a train to the far end of the park where they had built a walkway that takes you right along the top of the falls. It was amazing and so exhilarating to be hit full on by the spray. On our way back we saw baby raccoons (or something similar) which were really cute but also crafty, trying to steal your sandwiches! We were lucky with the wild life as we also saw lots of butterflies and birds plus a caiman laying low in the river. We spent the rest of the day walking the trails around the park and seeing all the different view points. We have both been to Niagra falls and both agree that Iguazu wins hands down.
The next day we were set to go to the Brazillian side of the falls. We had seen a bus that seemed to go there so we jumped on it without a second thought. It turned out to be the wrong bus and we ended up completely lost. Eventually with a jumble of Portuguesish and four buses later we found ourselves at the falls. They were just as impressive as the Argentinian side. You see them from further away and so you can appreciate the sheer scale of them. There was another walkway that took you out to the middle of the falls that was surrounded by rainbows on each side. We ran along in the spray through what seemed like a rainbow tunnel. It was surreal. The next day it was time to take our first luxurious Argentinian bus to Buenos Aires. We were so excited we were like two little kids at Christmas!
