Iguazú waterfalls closed to the public

After heavy rainfalls in the region, authorities were forced to close the Iguazú National park, most of the walkways and viewpoints being flooded.

We visited the falls last year in June and were disappointed to see that due to the huge flow of water some areas of the parc were restricted like the famous Devil’s throat.

Nevertheless, the sight was really worth it, it was stunning. We must go back soon (when the weather is more peaceful !)Image

Suite aux récentes pluies torrentielles, les autorités ont décidé de fermer aux touristes le Parc National d’Iguazú, la plupart des passerelles et des sites de point de vue étant submergés par les eaux des rivières Parana et Iguazú.

C’est à la même époque l’année dernière que nous avions visité les chutes. Beaucoup de pluie aussi et la déception de trouver certains sites fermés comme la fameuse Gorge du Diable.

Malgré tout, quel spectacle époustouflant ! Un lieu magique à refaire c’est sûr (dans des conditions plus clémentes !)
