Once every year, retired schoolteachers Jacqueline Hall and Helen Wick leave their husbands behind for a girls’ getaway. Planning for their 2015 trip began when the pair discussed an Amazon vacation boat trip and visit to awe-inspiring Iguassu Falls with their Travel Counselor, Jona Willis.
Willis suggested a tour that Hall and Wick say was a perfect fit, full of memorable experiences and a level of luxury one might not expect in a rainforest.
Seeing Iguassu Falls on the Argentina-Brazil border from their hotel —which was perched near the huge, roaring waterfall—was a highlight for Wick, 71, of Modesto, California. “The hotel was just unbelievable,” said Wick. “There were trails we could walk across to see the spectacular falls. The hotel was really top notch, and the food was absolutely delicious.”
