After a very long bus ride from Buenos Aires, I arrived in the hot, humid jungle town of Puerto Iguazu. I visited the blue and white Triple Frontera (Triple Frontier) monument which marks the area where Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil meet. Not far from Puerto Iguazu are the famous Iguazu falls. Thousands of litres of water from the Rio Iguazu (the Iguazu river) pour over the cliffs creating these magnificent waterfalls. The biggest waterfall is called Garganta del Diablo (The Devil’s Throat). The water crashes over the edge with a great roar, sending up so much spray that you can’t see the river at the bottom. The moisture in the air combined with the sunshine to create a beautiful rainbow.
