Monte Hermoso | Argentina

    Finally getting this post up before the summer is over, we were actually in Monte Hermoso around the middle of January but better late then never!

San Ignacio | Argentina

San Ignacio, a tiny little town just 4 hours out of Iguazu, this stop can be easy to miss, but if you have the time it is definitely worth a visit, the main attraction being some of the best restored Jesuit ruins in Argentina. There are over 30 Jesuit settlement sites around the area of
