After a whole day wandering along the Iguazu falls on the Brazilian side, we take our bags out from the lockers at the entrance of the park and we leave in direction of Argentina. The bus stops at the Brazilian border. We’re worried and hope we won’t have to pay an “exit” tax as we don’t have an entry stamp on our passports.
The immigration officer scans our passports and can’t find us in the database. We wonder why… (maybe because we entered the country without a stamp…oops). Of course, he doesn’t speak English and speaking Spanish is already hard for us, let alone speaking Portuguese. We finally find a way to explain that the bus didn’t stop when we crossed the border. He looks at us surprised and lets us go to Argentina. We’re relieved.
We arrive in Puerto Iguazu and get 2 beds in an 8 beds dormitory. It’s much better than the 16 beds of the hotel on the Brazilian side. The hostel has a chilled vibe and the staff is very nice and helpful.
Time to cook an omelette and we go to bed. We need to rest as we have a long day ahead of us.
The falls on the Argentinian side are very impressive, especially the « garganta del diablo ». It’s absolutely breathtaking.
The mist is so strong, it seems to be raining. Our camera lense is covered with water drops in a few seconds.
It’s a great place to visit.
