Gay Iguazu

Iguazu,
Argentina

Iguazu, Argentina.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Creating the natural border between Argentina and Brazil are the magnificent Iguazu falls. Set in a 75,000 hectares National Park of sub-tropical rain forest, these mighty cascading falls are complemented by natural flora, fauna, wildlife, and a colorful array of butterflies. They are located about ten miles from the Argentine town of Puerto Iguazu which offers convenient bus and taxi service to the park entrance. The Iguazu Falls---meaning big waters---were discovered by Alvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca in the year 1541.

The falls are strung out along the rim of a crescent-shaped cliff about 2.5 miles long dropping into the gorge below. But perhaps the most impressive distinction for this majestic tourist attraction is the fact that it remains undeveloped and unspoiled by commercialism. There are no revolving restaurants atop concrete towers, or souvenir shopping malls, or wax museums, and nowhere to satisfy a Big-Mac attack. These wondrous sights can be witnessed close-up, in their natural environment, either from a Zodiac dinghy---with a refreshingly cool drenching---on the Iguazu River, or along the miles of pathways with wooden catwalks.

Throughout the park are easy hiking trails, paths, catwalks, and observation points making it easy to enjoy this remarkable vista. There is a small train service from the park entrance to the Devil's Throat at the commencement of the falls. From here it is easy to follow the map and traverse the landscape at a leisurely pace.

Many tours and excursions are available in the region with the gay-friendly Aguas Grandes tour company. They can arrange tours of the falls, adventure tours, canopy tours, Parques Nacionales excursions, visits to the Wanda gem stone mines, or customize your own outdoor adventure. This region is a complete holiday playground and offers much more than just a visit to the falls. It is perfect for a romantic escape, a honeymoon destination, or an anniversary celebration, or simply a place to relax at the hotel pool bathed in the tropical sunshine.

The small town of Puerto Iguazu is populated by about 30,000 residents and still retains its quaint character and simple origins. In Brazil Foz do Iguaçu is the town closest to the Falls and offers many amenities including the region's only gay-friendly bar named Space Night Club. Both towns offer a wide variety of gay-friendly accommodations, restaurants, cafes, bars, and shopping boutiques plus local crafts markets.

The year-round tropical climate provides hot days with the occasional cooling thunderstorm--- usually at night---making this an ideal destination at any time of year.

If you are planning a South American vacation be sure to do some research on this hot new gay-friendly option for a memorable experience.

Perhaps Eleanor Roosevelt said it best upon her first visit to the Iguazu Falls when she exclaimed “ Oh, Poor Niagara!”.
