The Falls can be seen from both Argentina and Brazil
We spent one night on each side. Both sides are magnificent but the views are different. On balance we prefer the Brazil side because you get a wider view of the falls and at this time of the year there seems to be more water to be seen from the Brazil side.
The Hotel is also much better on the Brazil side, in our opinion!! (there is no choice of Hotel unless you stay some 30Kms away. There is only one hotel on each side! Both are expensive and beautiful but you are a captive and have no choice but to pay up!
There is lots of bird life and if you’re into plants then its heaven!
Butterfly watchers are also in second heaven. There are many beautiful species fluttering around. There are also dozens of “COATI’S” (which is like a long tailed Racoon) Very sweet but the locals think they are a pest and the tourists feed them!
The highlight for me is definitely the boat ride…it takes you virtually under the falls and you get absolutely soaked! The weather here is hot and humid and the water is surprisingly warm (at least not cold) so it was refreshing
Tomorrow we fly to Sao Paulo and drive to the coast to PARITY for three nights then onto our last stop…Rio!
