The trip to Iguazu was easy. Cab ride to the airport, a dingy LAN Airlines check-in area at the domestic and much more convenient Aeroparque airport, sit in a gleamingly-new departure lounge, short flight, and arrive to a jungle sea of green.
We stayed at the Sheraton, the only hotel in the park proper, figuring we could maximize our time exploring. The location is undeniably nice but the hotel itself is pretty meh. They’ve got you cornered and they’re full so there’s not much attempt to impress. But whatever, we’re not here for the hotel.
We didn’t have much intel to go on as the concierge gave us a map and had little else to offer in way of advice (see above lack of attempt to impress) and our guidebook was short on details but we walked the lower and upper loop paths on day one, and then took the little tourist train out to the Devil’s Throat viewpoint and did the truck ride/naturalist tour/boat ride on day two. I think we guessed at a pretty good sequence but there’s really no wrong way to do it.
