Night life

by nessa23

Me and my husband are going to Foz do Iguacu in september for a week and we're staying in a hotel on Av. Jorge Schimmelpfeng, is that a good spot for bars and clubs and is it dangerous to walk in town at night?

RE: Night life

i didn´t find that much nightlife in foz apart from restaurants with live music.
they are very fine though if you want nightlife in a quiet way.
foz is a caino town so you might find some more flashy nightlife in the big casino hotels.

i did not feel unsafe walking around at night there.

RE: Night life

I did not find Foz do Iguaco or Puerto Iguazu very interesting for night life.There is much more going on at night on the Brazilian side but as for crime this is what Fodor's guide says, "You may find Puerto Iguazu' preferable to its Brazilian neighbor, Foz do Iguacu, because it's considerably more tranquil and safe (when you go to the Brazilian side, leave your valuables in the hotel and be on alert; crime is more frequent there)......" So just be aware and don't do stupid things such as wearing jewelry, flashing money, because unless you are Brazilians living in England then it will be obvious you are tourists and assumed to have valuables on you. I did find the Grand Hotel and Casino on the Argentine side offered fantastic dining, the local river fish was outstanding, and they also presented caberet shows and the casino was nicely low key.

Septemeber is a great time to visit the falls, it is the end of winter so the weather will be cool and not as many tourist as you have to deal with during the summer months. I went there last September and it had rained for five staight days before I arrived so the falls were spectacular. You can view some photos etc on my travel page. I did go to the Brazilian side one day only to visit the park. The view is better from the Brazil side but I feel the park on the Argentine side offers more opportunities to hike around the falls. They have a very good network of walkways that get you very close or out over the water looking directly down on the falls. Just bring a slicker and a rain cap. You can take a boat ride up to the falls and that is well worth the time and money. As I recall it was $Arg 80 or about $US 26.

Have a great trip

Travel Tips for Foz do Iguaçu

Bus etiquette

by acemj

For most of the buses around here (not the international buses), you'll enter from the back and pay the cashier, then go through the turnstiles and exit from the front.

So, when you're standing at the bus stop waiting, don't be surprised when the driver seems to drive by you. He's going to stop so that the back door is in front of you. But, be sure to stick your hand out to let him know you want him to stop.

Buses

by acemj

During my trip I often thought to myself that most Americans (by that, I'm referring to people from the US) seem to have enough money but never enough time and that in South America most of the time the opposite is often true. So, while taking the bus is certainly a better option, since my time was limited here I often settled for a cab.

The Terminal Urbana is the main bus station and it's located on Avenida Juscelino Kubitschek (on the Rio Parana side of town). From here you can catch buses to Itaipu, the airport, Puerto Iguazu, Ciudad del Este and, of course, the waterfalls. The buses for the falls are marked Cataratas and run every 20 minutes. You'll pay less than a buck.

Catedral Sao Joao Batista

by Willettsworld

The city's cathedral was first proposed in 1916 by the city's first mayor, Jorge Schimmelpfeng, donating a site. It was finally started in 1925, however, a fire started by a rocket from a celebration to mark the finished building completly destroyed it. It was then rebuilt and inaugurated in 1952.

Too Much Water to Use!

by Bwana_Brown

The Rio Parana is about the same size as the Mississippi River in the USA in terms of water flow, and is second only to the Amazon for drainage area in South America. As a result, the flows into the headpond of the dam very often exceed what is needed for maximum electrical output from the hydro generators.

Once that flow level is exceeded, the excess water is diverted away from the power house and discharged directly into the Rio Parana below the dam (otherwise it would come right over the top of the dam - and that would not be good!). The photo shows this 'spillway' complex where three huge concrete chutes channel the water down to the edge of the Parana. The spillways were designed to handle an excess water flow equal to 40 times the average flow of the nearby Iguazu Falls! In this case, we were in a lower flow period so only one of the three chutes was in action, but it was putting on quite a display as the man-made waterfall shot up into the air before plunging into the river! The reason for shooting the water into the air is to prevent erosion at the foot of the spillway by taking some of the 'downhill' energy out of the stream of water. Of course, it also never hurts to combine more oxygen into the river water for the benefit of downstream fish life!

A wonderful Look Up at the Falls

by easterntrekker

"Foz do Iguacu"

For us it is all about the Falls. Foz do Iguacu does not have much else to appeal to us but then what city wouldn't pale in comparison to the Falls.

We chose to stay on the Brazilian side as we were flying here from Rio and our flight was domestic ...saving us some money.
