DAY 2: FREE DAY AT IGUAZU FALLS
Today we explore the tropical rain forests and multiple waterfalls of Iguazú National Park with a naturalist guide. Iguazú Falls consists of 275 separate waterfalls along a nearly two mile long fall line along the Iguazú River on the border between Argentina and Brazil. Spectacular falls plunge 260 feet in a thunderous roar of mist and rainbows among giant ferns, vines and orchids. Today will be our introduction to the rainforest ecosystem full of butterflies, monkeys, caiman, peccary, deer and abundant birdlife especially parrots, toucans, hummingbirds and guan. There are miles of trails, a train to the Devil’s Throat overlook, walkways with foot bridges, and a boat crossing to more trails, all providing strategic access for unlimited photographic viewpoints.
On your own you can join a local excursion including a naturalist led bird watching hike, or a wet and wild boat trip up to the base of the falls (local tours not included). Overnight in a falls view room and dinner at the Sheraton Iguazu Resort and Spa.[BD]
