Iquazu falls visit

by JF128

we(3 people) plan to visit the Iguazu falls, arriving at the IGU, Brazilian airport on May 2. We only have 2 days to see the falls. We plan to visit the Brazilian falls soon after we arrive. After that, we will cross to the Argentina side as our we plan to stay in a hotel there. Our plan also include exploring the Argentina falls the next day. Question:
- we need transportation from the airport to the falls
- we want to keep our luggage somewhere while we tour the falls on the Brazilian side
we need transportation from the falls to our hotel on the Argentina side after touring the Brazilian falls.

What is the best way to do this? Has anyone done it this way before?

I'm not sure what's the budget for your hotel - I just returned from Iguazu and stayed at the Sheraton inside the park. Just got up in the morning, and walked into the trails. It was good for me as a woman traveling alone.

Drawbacks are that if you want to go to outside restaurants, and want to dine after the train is available you'd still need to take a taxi into town then. Food at the Sheraton was convenient and adequate, good even, but most people prefer dining outside the hotel. I also heard that the hotels in the Brazilian side were great, don't really know. The convenience of being right next to the trails was worth paying a bit more for the hotel.

I believe most people in the forum just use a taxi from the hotel into the park regardless of what side they stay at. Personally I had the hotel arrange for a pickup from the airport - I only visited the Argentina side.

There are many transportation tips in the Iguazu section of this forum ... here's the VT transportation link:

Go thru the pages - there are some tips for transp. inside the park, but there are some good tips on buses and taxis as well.

Hope this helps ...

Grabbing a taxi is by far the easiest. Why not go directly to your hotel on the Argentine side drop off your luggage and then head back. Might take you an extra hour at the most but not sure you would find anywhere really safe to leave your luggage besides that. This would not work so well if you stayed at the Sheraton in the park. Only if you are staying in the town or very close by.

Your other choice would be to cut a deal with the driver to wait for you and keep your luggage. My last trip up there I hired a remise and took us to the Brazil side and waited 6 hours for us and I think I paid about $arg 160 total. Should be able to do something similar from the Foz airport.

There are two bus companies that serves Foz do Iguaçu/BR and Pueto Iguazu/AR:
* Celeste Transportes - Fax 041 2122808
* Crucero del Norte - Fax 048 3222-3646
Both lines passes by Vila Fortes at brazilian land.
This note may help you as well.
The other VTnotes are OK.

Travel Tips for Puerto Iguazú

Minas de Wanda

by vtveen

There are a couple of options for a visit to the open mines of Wanda. You can book a guided tour or hire a taxi to Wanda (the driver will wait for you during the visit; all taxi drivers offer this trip).

But we decided to do it by public bus, which was leaving from the central bus station. We took a one way ticket, because there are several companies to Wanda (and further), so for the drive back we could take any bus we wanted. The one way fare is just 10 pesos (2009) !!

It is about 40 km’s to Wanda and after leaving the last houses of Puerto Iguazu we were driving along ‘Ruta Nacional 12’ through the vast rain forest of the province of Misiones with now and then a shabby farm house with bare footed children.

We were dropped off at the intersection to the Wanda Mines (Minas de Wanda). And after a lunch in a confiteria we got a taxi for the last 1½ km’s to the mine. We understood why this part of the country is called ‘tierra colorada – red earth’: the gravel road and all the soil was red coloured !!

We had to pay another 4 pesos entrance fee and became an English speaking guide. She showed us around the open mines with semiprecious stones like amethyst, agates and aquamarine. And we had to try to get some energy from a geode. Most impressive were the ‘real’ mines, where still miners are working and trying to find minerals in the basalt rocks.

'Of course' the tour ended in a shop with sculpted stones, crafts made of stone and jewellery. Our taxi was waiting and we had to leave; on our way back several children tried to sell us one of their stones.

Be aware all the people we met (except the guide) only speak Spanish. This was a really ‘off the beaten path’ adventure !!

Wanda is situated 43 km's south of Puerto Iguazù.

The Iguazu Falls

by SumTingWong

You must enter the Argentine National Iguazu Park and go and see the falls up close. After you get the entry tickety and enter the park you can take the new train to major stops around the falls. The walkways on the Argentine side are well done and allow you to go right above the falls, especially the one into the Garganta del Diablo.

The Upper Circuit

by easterntrekker

Leaving Devil's Throat behind we back track toour starting point and take the tram to our next hiking point. We now continue to the upper circuit....Just as incredible,here we see the width of the falls. So unbelievable to watch this force of nature.How mind blowing this must have been for the first ones who discover these falls.

Puerto Iguazu... the door to the paradise!

by ptitetoile

Puerto Iguazu is the small town/village of which depends the National Park Iguazu. It is a really nice town with a lot of trees and nature all around. The center is small (3 streets forming a triangle and the 2 main roads called Av. Victoria Aguirre and Av. Cordoba) and most of the restaurants, shops and facilities are situated in it.
The "terminal de bus" is 5-10 minutes from the center.
At night, the center is quite animated, especially on Friday and Saturday night. There are no real pub but the young people still can have fun : listening to Cumbia music in the streets thanks to the radio of a car with an open door! Life is so nice and simple!!!!

The atmosphere of Puerto Iguazu is really warm and authentic. It contains a lot of paved streets with subtropical green all around!!!! I really fell in love with this place. I stayed there 3 days and I was so sad to leave... The way of life is so cool there when it is so hot!!!!
