Isla San Martin, Iguazu National Park

Hop on a boat and visit Isla San Martin for a close look at Iguazu Falls. Tucked between two halves of the falls and permanently covered in mist, the island seems cut off from the rest of the world. Clamber around the rocky trails listening to the uninterrupted roar of the falls to reach a balcony with panoramic views and admire the sheer force of the water curtain. Look out for the rings of rainbows and vultures, the island's residents. Before leaving, go down to a sheltered, sandy beach to either rest and have a picnic on or dive and swim.
