Argentina: Day 4: Buenos Aires, Recoleta Cemetery, and arriving in Iguazu

We were rebooked on a flight to Iguazu for 3pm today, so we had the morning to see some sights in Buenos Aires.  We decided to visit the Recoleta Cemetery, as recommended by the Rough Guide to Argentina.  While we’re not huge history or architecture buffs, the cemetery had some nice architecture, and was good for a 1 hour visit.

After spending the morning at the Recoleta Cemetery, it was time for us to head to the airport.  We hurried back to our apartment, and took a taxi to the AEP airport to catch the flight to Iguazu.  We were not allowed to book a separate seat for my daughter on the domestic flights, so she traveled on my lap.  Since the flight was only an hour long, it was manageable.

Iguazu falls is situated in the midst of a tropical rainforest, so when we landed, it was raining, giving a lush, green vibe.  The airport was small, and seemed to only service a couple flights a day.  After collecting our bags, we waited outside for a taxi.

Soon, we were onboard a taxi driven by a friendly driver.  We were staying at the Yaguarete Lodge in Puerto Iguazu, around 20 minutes from the airport.  The lodge was a series of independent cabins, surrounded by the jungle.  The location was scenic, and the gave a true jungle experience.

After checking into our lodge, we took the same taxi into town, which was around a 15 minutes drive. In town, we went to a grocery store and brought some rice, vegetables, beans, oil, salt, and bread.  We were set for the next 2 days!
