DAY 6 (1 of 3) – PUERTO IGUAZU, ARGENTINA

A 90-minute flight brought us to a different world than Buenos Aires.  We arrived at Iguazu Airport at 10:30 in the morning.  Everywhere was lust green around the airport runway.  It took us 30 minutes by bus to reach Puerto Iguazu, a town that seemed like wouldn’t exist if Iguazu River does not happen to pass by here with a 80m drop that forms the world famous Iguazu Falls.  All the roads and soil were red in colour.  A bus terminal and a gas station at an intersection form the centre of the town.
