My trip to the falls on the Rio Iguazu was definitely worth the effort to come here. I had been wanting to come up here for years and just had never made it yet but finally in September of 2008 I was able to come.
The arrival on the flight feels like they just took a cookie cutter and chunked out a small airfield in the rain forest with a two gate terminal. We were in row one on the flight up and were among the first off the plane and into the terminal to await our baggage.
With bags in hand we made our way out to the exit of the airport and almost choked on the humidity. Quickly we found a taxi with what appears to be the flat rate of 60 pesos to the Sheraton. So into the car and off we were just taking in the “country road” setting and some small talk and tour guide activities from the driver.
One surprise was coming quickly in that we had a park pass to buy on our way to the hotel at the costs of 40 ARS per person. So make sure you have enough cash to cover all of the above.
Once inside the park you come to the main park buildings and a traffic circle that you go around and out the left side heading to the hotel. Eventually the hotel will be on the left hand side and you’ll really feel like you’ve arrived. But trust me and wait on your excitement. Grab your bags and head into the hotel for check in. Finally out the large windows behind the check in desk you get your first view of the falls. And that is why we all come here after all isn’t it.
The Falls is a great place to unwind. Our trip to the Falls felt like a totally different vacation from Buenos Aires. Neither one of us is the outdoor adventure type with lots of climbing etc so we enjoyed a leisurely exploration of the park. The park is well mapped out and it is easy to get around on foot.
Sometimes it's fun just to relax. During a rainy day we went to the Spa for an awesome massage, jacuzzi. and some champagne. It was a relaxing experience that was a highlight of our trip. We spent the late afternoon and evening enjoying drinks at the lobby bar. It realy was a great time.
