There’s a great deal of debate as to where you’ll find the world’s largest waterfall, not to mention just how you measure this: Width? Height? Flow? One thing’s for sure however, Iguassu falls, located on the border between Brazil and Argentina offers the visitor some of the most spectacular views, as well as the ability to get close enough to hear its roar and feel its spray – simply breathtaking!
The rivalry between Brazil and Argentina could easily be likened to that between France and England and unsurprisingly there’s also a great deal of debate as to just which side affords the best view of the falls. Argentina has claimed about two thirds of the falls as its own and some argue that this in fact serves to make the Brazilian side superior; being that it offers you a view of the Argentinean side. Perhaps the only way to put an end to the debate is to ask luxury travel experts Dehouche help you organise a tailor made itinerary to Brazil and Argentina and make up your own mind.
Dehouche can arrange accommodation on the Brazilian side in the sumptuous ‘Hotel das Cataratas’ one of very few hotels inside the park itself, where you can enjoy panoramic views as you take breakfast on the terrace. Later in the day, Dehouche can whizz you across the border to the Argentinean side, where you can take an exhilarating boat ride close enough to the falls to get seriously wet. Dry off in the sunshine before journeying to the highest point, where you can cross 1km of river by walkway, marveling at the mist that rises up to 150 meters above the falls long before you reach them. Yet little can prepare you for the experience that is peering down into the devil’s throat itself; a horseshoe shaped cataract 150m wide where the falls crash almost 300 feet to the rocks below.
In contrast to the grandeur of the falls, the towns of Foz do Iguaçu and Puerto Iguazu are little to write home about; the falls are undoubtedly the main attraction here. If you’re hoping to take in other destinations in Brazil and Argentina, you probably won’t feel the need to linger. With Dehouche as your guide, you can be sure of taking in all there is to see in as little as 24 hours, leaving ample time to explore the many other natural wonders this continent has in store as part of a fabulous luxury vacation or romantic honeymoon.
Let Dehouche arrange your luxury boutique hotel and enjoy a whole host of insider tips on where to truly escape from it all on your honeymoon.
