Adrenalin hits you down the rapids and increases, followed by a wave of terror when you see where the bath is going to be. I had already done this tour, but not in this waterfall, neither with this amount of water!
There was so much water that it seemed a tsunami, like shown on TV. Some people screamed like crazy and wanted to give up. It did not last long, after we saw everything white and felt the weight of the water – more screaming and everyone wants more. Others swallowed a lot of water from screaming so much. The boat dives again in Salto San Martín, this time for a while longer.
We thought it was over, but we had one more bath in another waterfall as a treat. This one seemed to be calmer and have less water – we kept on going, smiling at the adventure. We were such fools… this one was higher and the water drops hurt. With all the adrenalin, the pain was good and invigorating.
I did the right thing by not taking off my goggles, or else it would be impossible to open my eyes under so much water. We had 4 baths and left the place wishing for more. It was a perfect day to blow off steam.
Bathing in Cataratas is the highlight, but is not all in this GRAN AVENTURA tour that starts with a trail by car through Sendero Yacaratiá. The guides tell us details about the wilderness until we reach the boat and go by the Canyon of Iguazu River. Brazil on one side, Argentina on the other and the Devil’s Throat right there and getting closer… more than an unmissable angle, with the constant presence of a rainbow to appreciate majestic falls.
To wrap things up, another beautiful surprise: in the evening, the sunbeams shone through the rocks and plants, lightening parts of all the waterfalls. A close rainbow said goodbye, but no one could move on. Everyone was ecstatic with the beauty of the moment, trying to record it all and keep it forever.
