Crossing into Argentina, Puerto Iguazu is a much smaller town and we stayed at Hostel Inn for a few days to bring in the new year. With a pool, bar and loads of other facilities it really is a backpackers resort! New Years Eve involved a big cook up, loads of travellers, music, dancing and some lounging in the pool thanks to the warm temperature. A great night. We did try to bring in the new year an hour early, wondering where the countdown was we discovered there is an hour time difference between Argentina and Brazil!
We spent a full day exploring the falls from the Argentinian side and you could easily spend another. The facilities and walkways are much larger than the Brazil side and you can view the falls from all angles. Up close from the base, the side, and over the top! You can also take a boat that drives almost underneath a section of the falls, where you're garanteed to get soaking wet. The main attraction was reserved for the end, where we saw the 'Devils Throat' once more. Literally breathtaking as we stood surrounded by 260 degrees of pummeling water. A sight that won`t be forgotten!
