I visited Iguazu Falls a few years ago after our cruise to Antarctica. Having seen Niagara Falls a few years before that, I was blown away. Niagara is impressive, but it does not compare to Iguazu. Being in a sub-tropic region makes Iguazu Falls so much more lush and beautiful, in my opinion. The falls are located on the border of Argentina and Brazil, so you can visit both sides. But you will need a visa to enter Brazil if you’re a US citizen, which is why we stuck to the Argentina side.
2012 has been such a great year! I hope you all enjoy the holidays over the next week or so. Look for my next post on January 3, 2013!
