Our flights to Puerto Iguazu (the town nearest the falls on the Argentinian side) were uneventful, thankfully! We were met at the airport and taken to the nice little family resort called ‘Los Troncos’ (Los Troncos) We were greeted by impeccably presented and knowledgeable staff, who saw us to our rooms, and then gave us welcome drinks in the pool/lounge/restaurant area once we had freshened up. This B&B really is geared for families, in terms of facilities – the rooms were very big, sleeping a couple (in a loft bedroom, with double bed that wasn’t long enough for John!), and 4 single beds downstairs. It did have a lovely balcony off the loft that overlooked the pool and jungle-like vegetation surrounding the place, which was perfect for drinks and blogging and skyping loved ones back home. All in all, a pleasant and very economical place to stay.
Instead of taking the return train back to the centre of the park, we opted for the eco adventure canoe ride. Saw some interesting birds, and an Argentinian couple lose their phone over the side of the boat (well…it slide out of HIS pocket, and SHE wasn’t very happy about it). No caman on this trip, though. Nocturnal, and all that. Shame.
From our primitive, yet wonderous, experience in nature, we headed to the Sheraton for lunch. More wonderful fish and shrimp, prepared beautifully, accompanied by some fantastic Argentinian wine (again!). Our timing for lunch was superb – it was so lovely sitting, eating and sipping while a storm blew in – watching the falls and the every changing weather, rain, thunder, brilliant! Spent the evening back at ‘Los Troncos’ blogging while eating crisps, drinking wine and reading. Life’s hard!
