Visiting Ciudad del Este while I was in Argentina to see the Iguazu Falls, seemed like the right thing to do. But I’m not convinced it was worth my time.
I visit Santiago de Chile on my way back from Antarctica. I had 3 days to visit old friends from New York and to catch a glimpse of a city I only knew from the newspapers and books.
Iguazu Falls should be on the list of places to visit for Argentina or Brazil! The falls at Iguazu are twice as large as the Niagara Falls, and the parks surrounding them host a variety of animals.
A visit to Buenos Aires is a step in another world. Ever since the first moments I came to Buenos Aires, the city got a special place in my heart. When you visit Buenos Aіrеѕ, you’re discovering an intoxicating city. it’s rіddlеd wіth hіѕtоrу, роlіtісѕ, dаnсе аnd сulturе.
Cusco is a city that lives from tourism. The city and the surrounding area has lots to offer:
Cusco is best known as the city close to Machu Picchu. There are other archeological sites in the area. They are definitely worth a visit. If you can get passed the name confusing.
When you have lived a week in budget hotels where warm water isn’t available, arriving in a nice hotel might cloud my judgment a little too optimist. A review nevertheless:
Machu Picchu is -of course- on every traveler’s bucket list. So I had to make sure I was there as well.
Arequipa is the second largest city in Peru. It was the first city where I spent some “real” time, since I arrived in Peru.
If you have time to visit only one thing in Arequipa, let it be the Monasterio de Santa Catalina.
