Finally. Iguazu Falls, Brazil.

Having visited Victoria Falls in 2014 – and rafting the Zambezi below the Falls – I was quite sure Iguazu could not compete.

Happily I was wrong.

Iguazu is even better for the tourist. Though both Falls are astonishingly otherworldly, you get closer in Brazil.

Unhappily it poured tropical rain. I was soaked, cold and wind blown. I had to keep moving just to stay warm.

The highlight here is walking out into the middle of the Falls.

Yes those walkways have been washed out in the past.

Here’s how it look on a sunny day.

I wished I’d been here in the early days of tourism. 🙂

If you haven’t been to Iguazu, put it on your Bucket List 🙂

Visit both sides. When I tried to cross the border into Argentina officials insisted I needed to pay a special $90+ visa – in advance – printed and in hand – for a visit of just a few hours. No exceptions.

I walked back across the bridge into Brazil. 😦
