It’s winter here but it should be warmer. A lot. Iguacu Falls is a UNESCO heritage site and listed as one of the seven natural wonders of the world. This is a good thing as there is some protection for the Atlantic rainforest and its inhabitants. No jaguars on this trip but lots of gorgeous birds.
We have also had a fab time ‘getting over’ jet lag: great hotel, someone else cooking food/ washing up/ making the bed…. yea!
And the area is such a great place. Jungle noises in the morning wake us up at 6.46 exactly. 3 birds that we now look forward to their screeches: red bummed crow thing, brown thing and a slightly bigger blacker thing. All totally amazing (latin names to follow).
Breakfast is a total delight: as much fruit as you can eat, omlettes, croissant, bread, meats.. you get the idea. And, since it’s our last day a glass of Brazilian Champagne. I know; it’s not Champagne. But you know what I mean….
The boat safari was, surprisingly, rather fun! And bloody wet, which was the point. You have the option of ‘wet’ or ‘dry’. Even the ‘dry’ is fairly wet.
So: in summary: 5 nights? Probably one too long, but 2 is definitely too short. You choose. But 2 will leave you feeling you have missed out. Which you will do, if you don’t come and visit here.
Over for a few days.
