Sheraton Iguazu Resort & Spa: A Splendid Stay

In the heat of mid-afternoon, we're relaxing in our suite after a day that's included a "Nautical Adventure" ride in a large inflatable that took us right under the edge of a couple of the falls in a genuine thrill ride.

Later we rode the little train up to the "Devil's Throat" station, and hiked out the ramps to an incredible view of this section of the falls. Photos will follow - lots of photos and maybe more video.

As for our lodging, it's well known that the Sheraton Iguazu Resort & Spa is the place to stay here, right inside the national park and a short walk to all of the trails. The rates are expensive, but it's a million-dollar location, and we have a million-dollar view from our deck.

The hotel is modern, we've found the food and drink to be more than adequate, including lunch yesterday and a very good buffet breakfast that's included in the room rate. The beds are firm and the air conditioning works exceptionally well. The pool is also a great spot to hang out and cool off.

Best of all, we find the employees here to be friendly and welcoming. This has been a great home-away-from home for us and we'll be sad to leave.

Still, Buenos Aires is beckoning us.
