Is a visa required to visit Iguazu Falls flying in from Buenos Aires?

by aukahkay

I am planning to visit Iguazu Falls by taking a flight from Buenos Aires on Aerolinas Argentina. Is it considered a domestic flight? Do I need a Brazilian visa to visit Iguazu if I fly in from Buenos Aires? As a Singapore passport holder, I do not need a visa to visit Argentina but I need to apply for one to visit Brazil.

A flight between Buenos Aires and the Argentinian part of Iguazú falls is considered domestic and you don't need a visa, but if you're planning to visit the Brazilian part then you might. If I was you, I'd ask at the Brazilian consulate near you.

I have heard that the Brazilian border control will let USA citizens in for one day to visit the falls and give you a stamp on a separate piece of paper witout the need for a visa and the cost involved. Does anyone have any experience about this? (Sorry, I do not need a visa so I never bothered to find out).
(I will put this out on the Brazil stream so maybe you could find some info there)

This piece of paper idea is not correct, bad information.
U.S. passport holders need a Brazilian visa, as do citizens of some other countries.
Apparently sometimes some taxi drivers can "sneak" you across the border without a visa, but it's not something you can or should count on.
Argentina and Brazil each have an airport on their respective side of the border, so flying to Puerto Iguazu from BsAs is considered domestic.

If you fly into Puerto Iguazu (in Argentina) no additional visa is needed because it is domestic. I think you do need a visa to go to the Brazilian side. That was one reason why I only saw one side of the falls. I didn't want to chance something like that just to save a few bucks.

However, the Argentinian side that I did experience was great! So, although I didn't get to see both sides, I still think that I got value out of the experience.

No, not if you fly into Argentina side. You technically need one to go to Brazil, a small risk if you take local buses, but the falls are best from the Argie side anyway.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Weather in Buenos Aires

by sof76

The weather arround the world is becoming a little bit weird every year. I won't philosophize here about that...

Here in the south hemisphere our summer begins december 21, autumn march 21, winter june 21 and spring september 21.

Buenos Aires is terribly humid. (Women: bring Keratin for the hair!!!)

Our summer is very hot, specially during january and february.
Spring and autumn are pretty nice but a little bit rainny.
And winter for me is really cold, but is not that terrible for "normal people" haha. We may have -2C° but not colder than that.

It doesn't snow in Buenos Aires. In my opinion the nicest time to come here is durin October/November and or March/April/May.

At the end of october all the trees at the streets start to bloom! I like that!!

Amazingly Buenos Aires is not the city itself, you have got to discover the provinces around the capital, some of them are not so far from the city, and you can have lovely surprises finding our more charming places in your trip!

One of the greatest surprises has a name: SAN ISIDRO...

The magnificent train station has sophisticated shops, pleasant cafes and wonderful gardens. There are two ways to get there, take the train from Retiro in Buenos Aires and get the LINEA MITRE to Tigre, one station after Acassusso is where you have to jump off...

The other way which I really like is taking the scenic TREN DE LA COSTA, at Maipu Station...

Of course from Retiro the ticket is cheaper, it is just 70 cents, while in Tren de La Costa you pay 4 pesos!;)


Credit Cards / Tarjetas de credito

by sof76

En la mayoria de los negocios, bares y restaurantes, se puede abonar con cualquiera de las tarjetas de credito mas importantes, pero hay que tener en cuenta que en algunos casos, pueden aplicar recargos sobre los precios de contado (entre el 10 y el 20%).

Most of the stores, bars and restaurants in the city take any of the most important credit cards, but be carefull cause in some cases they may charge you an extra 10 to 20% over the cash price.

Of course, the monument to Evita could only come about after the Justicia Party under Carlos Menem had reclaimed political power. Menem was always a curious Peronist who even now lurks just off-stage of Argentina’s political peaks. His rush to privatize political sectors and the rumors of vast corruption – an airport in western La Rioja is but one example – has led to a dramatic polarization of Argentine public opinion towards Dr Menem. The polarization is aptly demonstrated here on the plaque commemorating the dedication of the Memorial to Evita. It is Menem’s name that has been defaced.

"Soho" of Bueno Aires

by missbutler about shops of Palermo Viejo

The Palermo Viejo neighborhood, sometimes called Palermo Hollywood, has about a hundred cool shops -housewares, art, clothes and accessories, kids stuff, books. Also, a lot of great places to eat and drink. The city puts out a very useful and cool map with about 200 places marked - ask for it in almost any shop. clothes by young designers, great stuff for the home, unique gifts.
