Iguazu

by Bearzy

Hi,

I want to fly or take a bus from the Iguazu-area to Montevideo. Are there any websites with flight- or bus-schedules that you, fellow travellers, reccommend?

I dont care if it is from the Argentina or Brazil side.

Thanks!

Thank you very much. I guess we´ll fly from Iguzu to Buenos Aires, the fares dont seem to be that expensive (time is also valuable!). Then a day trip to Colonia sounds pretty good. I really want to visit Uruguay since Im in the area :)

Travel Tips for Foz do Iguaçu

A jungle hub

by acemj

While Foz do Iguacu might seem like a small town in a faraway remote location, it is actually one of the main hubs for this part of Brazil and in fact, this part of the jungle itself. The airport is the main artery for visitors into this region. However, it is also a hub for some more shady activities. There is a lot of illegal smuggling that goes through the border between Brazil and Paraguay and the city is somewhat notorious for attracting an international gathering of criminals and other sordid characters.

Do not Ignore B side

by benazer

When wisiting some Important sites (touristic or other ) also keep a look out for other interesting things around,you will be very surprised,it can be an unusual flower next to eiffel tower, a wise Camel next to Pyramids, infact sometimes B side can be much more interesting..
This picture was taken from my hotel window,must have been a hundreed humming birds on the trees , The Iguasu falls not far away but B side was interesting too....

LAND MARK THREE FRONTIERS

by csordila

Very important geographic place, because it's the only one place where it's possible to appreciate the view of the three countries, BRASIL, PARAGUAY, ARGENTINA;
One of the main tourist points, the Landmark of the 3 Borders consisted of a pilaster of rock in angle of 90 degrees.

Once you are in the Three Frontiers Meeting Point, consider stretching just a little farther and visiting Salto Monday, in Paraguay, the next largest waterfall in the area. Salto Monday consists of three waterfalls on the Monday River, the tallest of which drops from about 40 metres. Located in the city of Puerto Presidente Franco, just 20 kilometres away from the Friendship Bridge.

Three Fronteirs Mark (MARCO DAS TRÊS FRONTEIRAS)

by glabah

Near the outskirts of the city of Foz do Iguacu, you will find a turnoff for the marker for the boundaries of Paraguay, Brasil and Argentina.

In reality, there can be no real marker at the point as the borders are formed by large rivers. Instead, each country has a marker and observation point that overlooks the spot, and from which you can see the marker posts located in the other two countries.

For the marker in Brasil, there is no charge to enter the area featuring the marker post.

There are two stores - one for food and refreshments and one for memorabilia. The memorabilia store features items that are specifically related to the three frontiers marker (MARCO DAS TRÊS FRONTEIRAS) as well as a number of items from the region in general. As this is nowhere near as popular a spot as the Foz do Iguacu and is off the main highways, you will find some items are sold here cheaper than what they do in some other areas of the city.

The area above the gift shop is accessible by a staircase, and this small rooftop observatory also features paintings of the history and significance of the region.

Staying in touch is easy . . . sort of

by acemj

Especially around Avenida Jorge Schimmelpfeng on the southern end of downtown, you'll find plenty of places to get on VT (admit it, you're an addict like me). There are also places where you can use the telephone and you'll be surprised at how cheap it is to call long distance. The only problem is that on the weekends, the internet places are overrun by local kids all excited to play video games and chat with their friends online. If you're lucky enough to get a seat at a computer, it may or may not actually have a good connection. About half the times I tried to get on the internet in Brazil, I had some sort of problem with the connection. Oh well, that's when you just go with the flow. Remember, NO STRESS in Brazil.
