We arrived in Foz do Iguazu after an 18 hour bus trip… Needless to say everyone was in great spirits.
After finally finding our hostel via their cryptic clues “Get on the centro bus, get off across the road from the gaucho building, the hostel is right there” we found the hostel..
Its important for me to note here that there are multiple buses to centro (all taking different routes) and there are multiple gaucho buildings AND when we did indeed find The Gaucho hostel it was NOT “just across the road”.
We dropped our stuff at the hostel and went and got lunch. Again were staying at a Che Lagarto, this one was a 9 story “high rise” (comparatively to other hostels) and had an roof top deck with a spa and pool and an amazing view of the city.
That night we went to a Brazilian all you can eat Churrasco BBQ, Buffalo Branco. For $60 Reals (Just under $30 AUD) each we had access to a huge salad, vegetable, rice, pasta, chips and dessert buffet as well as being brought meat skewer after rack of ribs after chicken wrapped in bacon after… you get the picture. This place was awesome, the food was fantastic and the device was great. Although the price is almost 3 times of what you’d normally spend on a meal in Brazil it was totally worth it for a little bit of a splurge on our last night.
After dinner we headed back to our hostel rooftop for Free Caiprinia hour. This took place between 7:30 and 8:30 and in this hour you can have as many free caipirinhas as you’d like. It also happens that this hour coincides with a stunning sunset over the city.
Not bad Foz do Iguazu.
Tomorrow we’re going to the Falls!
