Iguazú Falls

Here are my selected photographs from the Iguazú Falls, which I visited at the beginning of January. As mentioned in my previous article, the falls straddle the Brazilian-Argentine border and are accessed by tourists from national parks on either side of the river Iguazu, each offering a different perspective. The Argentine side is far more impressive and extensive, however; I’ve only selected two photos from the Brazilian side.

An full report of the falls is not really necessary, as the experience was mainly an aural and visual one. There were far too many self-obsessed selfie stick touting tourists for my liking though. Does one really have to have 500 photos of themselves in front of every single waterfall? A couple a day is enough for me, but it is a symptom of the whims of our generation, I suppose.

The Brazilian side gives an excellent overview of the falls

Hungry coatis hunting food – they look cute but can turn aggressive

This is the amazing, awe-inspiring Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat). I visited it last of all.

  1. All rather Lord of the Rings. Love the Coatis! Like all animals (including humans) trying to survive, though, they’ll take what they can get…
