Iguazu Falls is similar to one of the other great waterfalls in the world due to its location on the border between two countries.

 

Where Niagara Falls sits between the United States and Canada, Iguazu sits between Argentina and Brazil. Like the former, the latter provides different experiences for travelers visiting from either country. Which side should you visit from?

 

Speaking first and foremost from personal experience, I can safely recommend visiting the falls from Argentina if you are more of an adventurous hiker. The Argentinian national park providing access to the falls consists of many trails to explore. There are a number of restaurants and places to rest as well, so this is the perfect place to visit if you are making a full day of the park.

 

Choosing which country to visit from requires some specific knowledge as well. If you are considering visiting the falls from Brazil, know American tourists traveling to Brazil must have a tourist visa before arriving. For Argentina, a passport is enough to gain entry to the country.

 

In Brazil, the falls are presented to tourists from an overlook. By all accounts, the view is spectacular, but it lacks the integration tourists feel when visiting from the Argentina side.

 

The falls’ official website recommends visiting the parks in the spring because of the low water flow in the winter and the hot temperatures of the summer months.

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

3 Gifts Travelers Want

Friends and family members of travelers are always looking for the right gift. It’s hard to find something that will surprise a traveler and also be something they use often. Many are trying to look past the typical gifts travelers get, such as notebooks and pens, and looking more toward destination-specific or more unique items. Gift giving can be difficult for some that don’t know what a traveler is looking for or needs, but these three gifts are a great starting point.
