4/11 – Les chutes d’IGUAZU…….. à tomber par terre

Après 10 jours à Buenos Aires, nous laissons notre petit studio sympa et le temps d’un vol d’avion pour quelques 1500km  vers le nord, nous atterrissons à Puerto Iguazu. Après avoir réservé notre billet d’avion par internet, j’ai par erreur pris 2 billets “résidentes” car il existe cette espèce d’aberration de double tarification, injustifiable selon moi, qui fait payer plus cher les étrangers que les “locaux”. je m’en aperçois en arrivant à l’aéroport et fais le nécessaire pour acheter le complément. Ca double presque le prix, mauvaise surprise…….

Donc nous atterrissons à Puerto Iguazu. Nous avons laissé Buenos Aires avec 16°. A la sortie de l’avion sur le tarmac il fait…….37°. nous trouvons un hôtel avec clim et piscine pour environ 20€. Puerto Iguazu se trouve au nord-est de l’Argentine à la frontière avec le Brésil et L’Uruguay. Ville sans intérêt particulier sauf pour recevoir les milliers de touristes qui comme nous viennent admirer les chutes , lieu classé au patrimoine mondial de l’humanité. Et ça le mérite!

Il faut 2 jours pour aller voir les chutes; 1 jour côté Brésilien, 1 jour côté Argentin. Car les chutes se trouvent sur le Rio Iguazu qui sert de frontière. Il est préférable de commencer par le côté Brésilien. Ce que nous faisons. les formalités douanières sont simples et la visite est super organisée.

Il faut commencer par aller voir le parc zoologique des oiseaux avec des centaines d”espèces. Ce parc est installé au milieu de la forêt tropicale qui borde les chutes.

Vous avez devant vous, des chutes qui s’étalent sur 2km de large, avec 80m de hauteur. nous avons la chance d’avoir un beau temps. L’explication géologique des chutes est que le Rio Iguazu coule sur un plateau de basalte qui s’arrête brusquement. Là se déversent des dizaines de milliers de m3 d’eau à la seconde. Une passerelle nous mène près d’une chute où quelques embruns nous rafraichissent. Nous avons du mal à quitter des yeux ce spectacle.

De retour à l’hôtel nous n’avons qu’une hâte, nous mettre dans la piscine car il fait très très chaud ( le thermomètre de la voiture qui nous ramène affiche 40°)

Le lendemain nous faisons la visite côté argentin. Une succession de sentiers, passerelles,ponts nous font pénétrer au cœur des chutes, c’est vraiment bien fait.  Nous les voyons de dessus, de dessous sur le côté. Côté argentin on est au centre des chutes et côté brésilien on a une vu extérieure panoramique. Cela se complète parfaitement. Je ne résiste pas au plaisir d’aller en bateau au pied des chutes. Annick préfère prendre des photos.

Un truc de OUF……

Le gars qui vend les billets de bateau me souhaite “bonne douche” Je lui réponds que pour une douche 75 pésos (13€) c’est cher. Il me rétorque : oui, mais c’est de l’eau minérale. Je ne pensais pas à quel point il avait raison. En effet le bateau va jusqu’au pied de la chute dans une eau bouillonnante et nous recevons  l’écume par seau, ça ne dure pas longtemps mais c’est un truc de Ouf.

La cerise sur le gâteau est la Gorge du Diable étape ultime de cette journée. Nous sommes au dessus d’une chute dont on ne voit pas le fond avec un superbe arc en ciel.

Merci dame nature de nous proposer tes joyaux……

    I precisely needed to thank you so much all over again. I’m not certain the things I might have made to happen in the absence of the entire methods provided by you on my topic. It became an absolute challenging issue for me personally, however , understanding your specialised fashion you handled the issue took me to jump with fulfillment. I’m just grateful for this help and believe you know what a powerful job you are providing educating the mediocre ones by way of your web site. Most probably you’ve never met any of us.

  22. CBD Products dit :

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Thanks
