Bag storage and going direct to the falls from the airport

by Dines

We are flying from Buenos Aires arriving at about 1:15 in the afternoon. we want to go direct to the falls in Argentina. Is there a bus from the airport? Is there a place to store our luggage at the falls? Will there be enought time to see the falls?

You would need to take a taxi or remise to the falls and no there is no place there to store your luggage unless you are staying at the Sheraton Hotel which is located inside the park. You can check my travel pages here for links to the park web site. Here is a link for the airport operator for IGR

Re: Bag storage and going direct to the falls from the airport

by Laluna01

Hi I just went to the falls last weekend. I arrived at Iguazu airport (9:30am) and took the public bus (15 pesso) to bus terminal, around 15 minutes.

They have luggage storage all day for 4 pesso, and have buses (10 pesso, round trip) to the falls every 30 minutes. The last bus will be around 5-6 pm. The fall closes around 6pm.

I walked (fast) around the falls for 4 hours, non-stop. So If you want to take more time and boat trip, you may have to stay overnight.

You can find every stars hotels. Cheapest hostels I can find is 20 pesso a night.

Have a nice trip.

Travel Tips for Puerto Iguazú

Being invited to a Argentinian wedding!

by ptitetoile

The surprise :

We just walked back from the center to the hotel when we heard a kind of walz music...Curious we went and see the place that made so much noice... As we were in front of the building, the doors were opened and we saw that it was a wedding party!!! With loud music and flashing and colorful lights...As we were on the street looking inside with an amused smile, one guy inside tells us to go in!!!! A little bit embarrassed, we refused but as the guy was insisting, we dared go in! And we were warmly welcomed by the guy and the mother of the bride! We received a glass of caipiriña and were invited to dance!!!! We received then again food and I received (before going away) a little "recuerdo" of the wedding of Cristian!!!!
I did not know that Argentinian were so friendly... an astonishing memory!!!!

Wanda, Mines of Precious Stones

by mindcrime

Wanda is 47 kilometers from Puerto Iguazu and I visited the area on my way to San Ignacio (it was part of the tour). We spent almost an hour at the open-cast mines looking at the workers that try to find stones and the (english speaking)guide explained some things about the procedure, the materials, the semiprecious stones etc He also tried to tell us about the “good” energy that some stones have but it was funny enough for most of us just to smile when we touched the “magic” stone! :)

The entrance fee was 6 pesos and at the end (of course) there is a shopping center where you can buy handcrafts and other objects for decoration, jewels for your girlfriend etc All made by the semiprecious stones like amethyst, rock crystal etc The prices were much cheaper than in the city and the variety was good enough to spend some pesos for some people I love back home. Here, they also speak English so don’t worry… :)

Some prices:
15pesos(3e) for a small tree, 45pesos(9e) for cheap earrings, 200pesos(40e) for expensive earrings

You can go there as part of your tour to San Ignacio, The bus tour costs 100pesos (20e) and it was much more comfortable because we were only 5 people so we didn’t loose much time (and the ride was only 30’).

You can also go by taxi or by local bus(10 pesos one way, 60’ ride) but in that case you have to care about the timetables etc
What’s more the local bus drops you off 1,5km away from the Wanda Mines so you have to walk a little bit and its not so nice under the sun although its nice to admire the red sand everywhere around. I liked it more inside the minibus because there was a local guide that told us some things about the area, the red colors of the earth (tierra colorada) etc Unfortunately, it was only in Spanish…

Se desciende el circuito inferior por unas pasarelas estratégicamente diseñadas en medio del bosque con unas grandes vistas de las cataratas y en algunos casos al pie de ellas , donde puedes sentir toda su fuerza
You go down the lower circuit by catwalks strategically distributed in the middle of the forest with great views of the waterfalls and in some cases at he feet of them , where you may feel all his strength

IGUAZU FALLS - THE BEST IN THE WORLD

by Frisbeeace

"The Falls and the Iguazu National Park"

The Iguazu Falls are a must if you visit Argentina and you won’t be dissappointed at all. This is a sure bet.

They were discovered by Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca, Spanish explorer, in 1541. They lie on the Argentina-Brazil border and have been named a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site in 1984. The falls reside on a virgin tropical jungle area protected by Argentine and Brazilian national parks on either side. Most of the falls, including the famous Devil’s Throat, are located on the Argentinian side of the river.

Iguazu Falls were formed as the result of a volcanic eruption and are divided by various islands into separate waterfalls. With a drop of 90 mts (270 feet) they are taller than Niagara Falls and with 270 cascades spread over 3 kms (2 miles) of the Iguazu River they are four times wider. They carry a huge amount of water with an average of 1,750 m³ per second which may go up during the rainy season of November – March to more than 20,000 m³ per second.

"The Devil's Throat"

From the Argentine side you can take a series of catwalks over the water rushing into the spectacular Devil's Throat (Garganta del Diablo) formed by a semicircle of 200 mts. (700 feet) of diameter where 14 falls drop 90 mts (300 feet). The force of the water is such that there is always a big thunder noise and a huge cloud of spray overhead that produces beautiful rainbows. The catwalk allows to step just at the very edge of the fall which is a very impressive and unique experience.

"The trip"

The best seasons to see the Iguazu Falls are spring and fall. Summer is too hot and humid, and in winter the water level is considerably lower. Usually you should plan a two night stay to allow visiting the falls from the Argetine and Brazilian side. The view from the Brazilian side is the most panoramic but the best part of the falls are on the Argentinian side where you can get much closer to them.
Downstream from the falls where the Parana and Iguazu rivers meet, so do the borders of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. Each country has created a landmark in their national colors on a spot in each of their countries where you can see all three.
