Sao Paulo To Iguazu

Our morning started early - we took a taxi to the airport at 5:00 a.m. - but our 90-minute flight to Iguazu (the Brazilian side) on a Tam A320 was perfectly fine, with some teasing views of water as we approached.

It's a small airport and worth a quick photo as we left.

We contracted with a taxi driver to drive us to the Sheraton via a view of the Brazilian side of the falls. It wasn't yet very warm and the bugs were on their siesta breaks.

Words really fail us, as do our photos, which can't possibly show the scope of these magnificent falls. Still, we'll keep snapping and trying.

With the help of our driver, it was relatively painless to pay the fees at the national park entrances on each side, and to cross the border, with stops both for Brazilian and Argentine officials.

We were upgraded to a suite with a view of the falls at the Sheraton, as a result of our current Platinum status. That's not hard to take at all.

This is one of those hotel-room views that we'll remember for a long time.


  1. Wow such beautiful pictures! I love the rainbow!

  2. The pictures are stunning so I can only imagine what the falls look like in person. What a great place to visit!
