Impressions of my Vlog
Iguazu Falls (Puerto Iguazú)
The Iguazu Falls are one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World and consist of almost 300 waterfalls located on the border between Brazil and Argentina. The Brazilian side offers a panoramic view and the starting point for visiting is the city of Foz do Iguaçu. On the Argentine side you can get closer to the waterfalls and the starting point is the city of Puerto Iguazú. The park is large and you should plan one day. On the Argentine side, I had the feeling that there was a lot more going on and I really liked it. Both sides are connected by an airport, so that you can fly in in the morning and out in the evening. Flights from Buenos Aires to Puerto Iguazu can be booked cheaply a few days in advance.
The capital Buenos Aires felt like a European city and is huge. Impressive was the cemetery “Cementerio de la Recoleta” with many small houses with graves. A walk through an ecological reserve with the skyscrapers in the background was great fun.
Tierra del Fuego
Tierra del Fuego is a region in the south of Argentina. I was hiking in the National Park and camped at almost 0 degrees for one night. It was surrounded by beautiful nature with snow covered mountains, different forests and lakes. The starting point was Ushuaia, which lies at the end of the world. On a day trip I was at the Lagoon Esmeralda.
- I visited Argentina on my world trip through Latin America. I crossed the border from Foz do Iguaçu (Brazil) to Puerto Iguazu. I explored the Iguazu Falls and then took the bus to Posada and across the border to Encarnación (Paraguay). During the world trip I traveled to Uruguay via Argentina and took a ferry from Colonia del Sacramento (Uruguay) to the capital, Buenos Aires. A plane took me to Ushuaia, where I had a ship to Antarctica. Afterwards I hiked in the Tierra del Fuego National Park and took the bus to Puerto Natales (Chile) for hiking in the Torres del Paine National Park. Then, I went back to Argentina by bus to El Calafate and El Chalten.
- I will visit Argentina in the further course of the world tour again.
- I used for my planning and can recommend the Lonely Planet for South America and the Rough Guide for South America.
Do you have questions to plan your trip or suggestions? I'm looking forward to your commentary.
