If you ever find yourself in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, be sure to spend a couple of nights in this nature retreat. Check Chiquitin’s AirBnB listing. We had two peaceful nights in his cosy cottage, surrounded by chirping birds and beauty of the natural park setting. The family dog, Artos, also stole our hearts as he periodically visited us for cuddles while we were relaxing in hammocks.
The Iguazu Falls will sweep you off your feet and leave your jaw dropped for days. It was by far the most impressive nature site we have seen in our travels. An area at the borders of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay contains 275 waterfalls which vary in size and speed of water flow. And they have lush, tropical forest where hundreds of birds fly and capuchin monkeys lurk in trees.
