Waterfalls in Iguazú

Last weekend we visited Iguazu in the province of Misiones, Argentina. Misiones is situated in northern Argentina. Puerto Iguazu borders at Brazil and Paraguay. The waterfalls are amazing on both the Argentinean and Brazilian sides, though we only were able to visit the Argentinean falls (called cataratas). The Brazilian side is said to offer more glimpses of wildlife. On our hike, we saw monkeys, butterflies, various sizes of rodents, and coatis.

Coatis, like scavenging raccoons, roamed the park–eager for tourist handouts. Some tourists were happy to oblige, despite warnings to the contrary. Some even petted them! I strongly advise against this.

These photos provide a glimpse of what we saw.
