Iguazu falls are an amazing sight and a must visit on any Brazilian itinerary, but have you thought of visiting them from Argentina.
Argentina is one of the countries we had really been looking forward to visiting we had only planned a short visit but had high expectations and we were not disappointed. The bus from San Pedro de Atacama across the border into Argentina is quite spectacular. Passing salt flats and lagunas before winding it’s way down the side of the Andean mountains to reach Salta our first stop. Salta is a beautiful city with plenty to keep us occupied for a few days and help us acclimatise to our new surroundings.
“Latins are tenderly enthusiastic. In Brazil they throw flowers at you. In Argentina they throw themselves.”
I can’t say we were looking forward to an eighteen hour bus ride, but the thought of returning to Buenos Aires kept us going. It was Lynne’s first time in the city, I had been before ten years earlier, and was keen to show her the sights before we crossed on the ferry to Uruguay which was a new experience for us both.
Hopefully, if our plans work out after our time in Uruguay we will return into Argentina for a second time from Brazil to take in the amazing spectacle of the Iguazu waterfalls from the Argentinian perspective before crossing back continuing our South American journey.
Buenos Aires is the largest city in Argentina and its capital. Buenos Aires is a city that never sleeps, famous for its phenomenal nightlife, which ranges from traditional neighbourhood taverns to award-winning cocktail bars.
Salta, Argentina is a lovely town in the North West of the country. If you’re travelling into Argentina from Bolivia or Chile then Salta is one of the first large towns you’ll come to.
