The destination is Puerto Iguazú on the Argentina side of this waterfall, coveted by enthusiasts of stunning waters. Here guests are transferred to their hotel in preparation for next day’s splash into the flora, fauna and wildlife surrounding a force of nature whose rivals include Victoria Falls in Africa and Niagara Falls in the United States. Iguazú is ranked sixth in the world in terms of average annual flow, just behind Niagara.
Iguazú National Park and Brazil’s sister park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are approached on foot, by boat and by train, all the while through the trained eyes of a naturalist guide who helps guests to spot tanagers, ant birds, toucans, manakins, parrots, trogons and tyrant flycatchers, among other species in this tropical rain forest.
Lower and upper walkways permit up close and personal experiences as guests explore the falls. Trails through the 210-square-mile reserve provide visitors with various views and vantage points, especially of the largest chasm, Devil’s Throat. A train ride through the ecology is part of the visit.
Included in the starting rate of $435 per person, double occupancy are transfers, one night accommodation, breakfast, a lunch tour of the falls on the Spanish-speaking side, a nautical tour to the base of the falls on the Portuguese-speaking side and the services throughout of a bilingual naturalist guide. The rate varies depending on the level of hotel selected for this visit. For more information please see

As Say Hueque owner Rafael Mayer explains, “We are a group of Argentine travel professionals who are passionate about our country. We have hiked in Patagonia, felt the mist of these falls on our smiling faces, walked along glaciers and cruised the deep blue lakes of South America. We have visited hundreds of hotels, sampled hundreds of restaurants and discovered the best wineries around, so we know exactly where to get a delicious steak, a sublime Malbec and a comfy bed along the way.”
