CATARATAS


Boarding - picture of Lugares Magazine One never bathes twice in the same river. Heraclitus' words are so true in Iguazú, especially with all the extravagance of the waterfalls. Various torrents, dense jungles and deep red soil. The Iguazú falls is a legend that never lets you down. It is also true that it can get uncomfortably hot, but they wouldn't be what they are if the climate were different Three days of humidity, tropical plants and wildlife, speaking of which the sight alone of a toucan's flight over the Bosetti falls made the whole trip worthwhile. I had never been to the falls, and my head was full of remarks such as "impossible! You must go!", "They're extraordinary!" and the more common cliché "the Argentine side is more beautiful but the Brazilian side has the better view". For me it was an enigma. Coaties - picture of Lugares Magazine The photographs cannot portray the magnitude nor the sounds of the place. Even at night, when the birds no longer fly, and the sun has gone to sleep and no longer can you see the rainbows that form in the drops of water suspended in the air, the Devil's Throat still maintains its magnetism and the tons of water continues to thunder. My morbid curiosity was unable to avoid the question "don't people choose this place to commit suicide?" And it was not an unreasonable question. Apparently they do. Quite often.

But a much more attractive option is to book a room for a couple of days in the Sheraton - the only hotel in the National Park with a view to the falls - and contemplate the 70 metre high white mass of water falling into the Iguazú River before it joins the Paraná on its journey to the Río de la Plata, not the sea. The terrace of the hotel offers an ideal spot to meditate, have a drink or wait for the sun to set, not to mention to dry out after the sightseeing on the catwalks or taking the rubber raft excursion on what is called the "Nautical Adventure".

Iguazu Falls - picture of Lugares Magazine Speaking of which, it is one of the newest excursions and has added a new dimension to the viewing of the falls. A real adventure where you come so close to the thundering waters that you think that they will engulf the boat and all its passengers. In case you were thinking of taking your camera, here's sotne advice: forget it.
