The spectacular waterfalls of Iguazú are located on the border between Argentina and Brazil. The nearest town on the Argentinean side, Puerto Iguazú, has a population of around 30’000 people. Its counterpart in Brazil bears the name of Foz do Iguaçu and is roughly ten times bigger. Since a visit to the falls usually involves seeing the falls from both countries, a number of border crossings is necessary. Setting my base camp at a strategic location involved some advance research, since I planned to continue my trip by going to Paraguay – which also has a border in the area.
