Iguazu Falls – Photos from the End of the World

Iguazu Falls feels like something you’d find at the end of the world if you were one of those old school explorers navigating the high seas. Theories of the Earth being flat aren’t so common these days but it’s fun to use your imagination. Iguazu Falls is a tourist destination for sure but there’s still room for a little exploration and discovery if you don’t mind forking out for one of the fancy pants hotels that lets you walk around to your heart’s content after everyone else has been kicked out of the park. This is by far and away the best way to see Iguazu Falls, you’ll still enjoy yourself during normal hours but there’s something magical about standing there by yourself, marveling at the spectacle, just you and nature. If you can only visit from one side I’d personally go with Argentina because of the variety of trails and view points it offers but the view from Brazil ain’t half bad either.

The Devil’s Throat at Iguazu Falls

Taking the extended walkway deep into the Devil’s Throat of Iguazu Falls (on the Argentinian side) was an awesome thrill and perhaps the most impressive display of mother nature’s raw power that I’ve ever seen. I must have been there close to an hour soaking up the experience (and water). The wind was fickle so getting decent shots before spray ruined things was tricky but I stuck with it and got a few shots that came out nice.

Iguazu Falls in Argentina

After checking out Iguazu Falls from the Brazilian side I got up early in the morning and made my way over the border to Argentina. There was more to see over this side, although the sheer number of people in the park made things a little stressful (especially¬†huge tour groups, yuck!). As well as a wider range of trails, there was also the chance to take a quick boat ride over to San Martin Island which sits in the middle of everything. It’s fun exploring the island and you get some great angles of the falls, complete with epic rainbows!

Iguazu Falls in Brazil

I was pretty excited about Iguazu Falls so I planned on seeing it from both sides, starting off in Brazil. Staying at the hotel inside the park made a huge difference, it was a little expensive but it gave me the opportunity to walk around as I pleased in the evening without having to worry about pesky commoners getting in my way. You get a nice overview of the falls from Brazil including perhaps the best angle if you were going to take just one photo.
