Iguazú Falls, Misiones, Argentina

My trip to Misiones was undoubtedly the most beautiful excursion I had ever embarked on.

We visited caves, mines, gardens, and wildlife preserves. We stood on a hill and were able to see the lands of Brazil and Paraguay all from Argentina.

The falls were incredible. No, they were more than that. Mesmerizing. Captivating. Enthralling. You might think a few pictures does enough to capture the beauty of a World Wonder. Or maybe a video does the trick. But neither do. The sight of La Garganta del Diablo (The Devil’s Throat) was without a doubt the most beautiful sight I had ever seen.

We were bundled by the bridge suspended just above the 80 kilometer fall, awed at the continuous fall of water, the deafening sound of its fall. The experience was like no other. With butterflies dancing around me wherever I looked, I stared at that waterfall for a long time. Enough time to bore my eyes into it, feeling as though I were the water itself: falling, crashing, spewing misty droplets up into the air, again and again and again.
