Iguazú (12/10-12/13)

As soon as we landed, despite not having any luggage, my mom was SO happy. She loves hot, tropical climates. My huge hair doesn’t really like them so I don’t either. But I too fell in love with Iguazú as soon as I saw where we were staying. There is one hotel within the Iguazú National Park in Argentina… the Sheraton. It’s definitely, definitely worth it to stay there because you end up with a view like this from your room…

Breathtaking. The first day we just relaxed, enjoyed the amazing view, ate some great food and waited for our luggage (which arrived that night, luckily!). The next morning we got up very early to be at the park by 9 AM. The National Park is literally connected to the path to the Sheraton, so within 10 minutes of leaving your hotel you experience views like this:

We also decided to take a boat INTO the waterfalls. They warn you that you will get wet but I guess I didn’t realize that we’d be directly underneath the entire force of the waterfall. I had a great waterproof digital camera, attached it to my wrist, and just randomly took pictures with my eyes closed (the water power is too powerful to keep your eyes open).

The city was mediocre at best – not worth spending much time there. But the pool at the Sheraton is definitely worth spending time at.

Happy mom! :)

Happy mom! 🙂

Iguazú was definitely one of the top 5 most amazing places I have ever been and I am so happy I was able to experience it with my mom!
