argentina v. brazil
when we arrived on the argentina side, i could understand more than jim and dad for the first time, well, ever. score 1 for argentina.
at the brazil park entrance a professional map-explainer gave us a detailed overview of all park attractions while making a point not to sell one activity over another. score 1 for brazil.
and argentina had the macuco trail through a sub-tropical forest home to monkeys, snakes, and birds aplenty. but the animals were feeling pretty camera-shy and forgot to borrow binocs from spivey. miss 1.
brazil, on the other hand, offered a super-hot trail guide, trail biking, alligator-spotting (they were divas enough), and kayaking on the iguaçu river. score 1 brazil.
but argentina came back with a sweet ride under the falls. as in motor boat ride around several of the falls, then don't mind if i back right in. better than cedar point, no doubt. score 1.
it was a close match, but brazil took home the trophy with a 4-3. so forget what the internet tells you, or outdated guidebooks, or even your well-meaning hostel staffer. brazil is better. always.
