Travel VideosAs we sift through over 50 hours of travel backpacking video, we have decided to share some exciting short video clips with you.  These travel videos were shared the week of September 19, 2021 on our Facebook Fan Page.

From northern Argentina, the Salta Region, we film a parrot or parakeet sitting on the fence post of a vineyard.  Near Baños, Ecuador we ride a sketchy cable car over a waterfall gorge.  In Argentina Patagonia we capture a quick glimpse of a glacier calving in front of our tour boat.  Enjoy our backpacking video clips!

Photo of the Day: Iguazú Waterfalls in Argentina

| by Aracely | 6 Comments » | Photo of the Day

The Iguazú National Park is a national park of Argentina, located in the Iguazú Department, in the north of the province of Misiones, Argentine Mesopotamia. It has an area of 550 km2 (212 sq mi). The park was created in 1934 and it contains one of the greatest natural beauties of Argentina, the Iguazu Falls, surrounded by the subtropical jungle. Across the Iguazu River lies its Brazilian counterpart (Iguaçu National Park). Both sites were declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO, in 1984 and 1986. – Wikipedia

Cataratas del Iguazú are waterfalls of the Iguazu River located on the border of the Brazilian state of Paraná and the Argentine province of Misiones. The falls divide the river into the upper and lower Iguazu. The Iguazu River starts at the city of Curitiba and runs for the most part of the course entirely in brazilian territory, and in a little part at the end bordering Brazil and Argentina. – Wikipedia

On the side of a long dirt load there is a hidden entrance that leads to forest through a corridor. Tucked away at the end of the trail is Finca del Paraiso. Here you will find a hot spring fed waterfall of hot water rushing into a pool of cool river water below. Finca del Paraiso is usually accessed from Rio Dulce, Guatemala which is a popular stopping point for Caribbean bound sail boats.
