Campo Grande to Foz do Iguacu

by dracobr

Hi!

Any idea how to go from Campo Grande to Foz do Iguacu? I´d like to travel on suface and stop once or twice on the way. Is there any place worth a visit?

Any help would be very appreciated.

Thanks.

The spots on the way Campo Grande-Foz do Iguaçu are:
* Corumbá (Overview by plane from Pantanal)
* Bonito (Watch the below link)
* Coxim (Rapids for canoeing in Rio Taquari)
* Aquidauana/Miranda (Fishing)
* Campo Grande (Tourism by railroad. Trem Pantaneiro from Campo Grande to Miran-
da. Watch the link below)
* Porto Murtinho (Boat voyage from Porto Murtinho to Ponta Porã). There is a
casino on the region. As gambling is forbidden in Brazil casino is on
bolivian land. Search for casino in Pedro Juan Caballero city, the twin bo-
livian city near Ponta Porã. There you may find tax free shoppings also.

bus:
"Nova Integracao runs a bus from Campo Grande to Cascavel leaving at 19:40 or 20:00 every day depending on the month (rainy season). It gets to Cascavel the next morning where you change for buses to Iguacu, a few hours down the road.
Eucatur runs from Campo Grande only on Wed, at 20:00: depending on the passanger load you may have to change at Cascavel or it'll take you through to Iguacu." (from FredSA)

Travel Tips for Foz do Iguaçu

Tourist Information

by acemj

The main tourist information center is located just off of Avenida Jorge Schimmelpfeng, Foz do Iguacu's main drag, on Rua Almirante Barroso. I popped in here to get a few details on the best way to visit Paraguay (Ciudad del Este) as well as the Argentine side of the falls. I also asked the young, English speaking girl who worked here what she would recommend for a good, quick and inexpensive lunch and she came through with a great choice (see my restaurant tips). You can pick up some free brochures including a free map as well as detailed information on visiting the falls and the hydroelectric plant in Itaipu.

The exact address is Rua Almirante Barroso, 1300. The website is www.fozdoiguacu.pr.gov.br

There are two other smaller tourist information booths at the airport and the main bus station (Terminal Urbana on Av. Juscelino Kubitschek).

Paraguay

by ATXtraveler

Located just on the other side of the river is the Country of Paraguay and its dirty city of Ciudad del Este. Despite the warnings of many posters here on VirtualTourist, Sarah and I decided to take an afternoon and cross the border just to see if it really was that bad. Yes, it really is, but at least now we can turn our map blue for this country. I would really like to give Paraguay a second chance some time, but Ciudad del Este will not be the spot to do so.

If you are interested in going to shop, there are said to be some good electronics discounts compared to Brazil, but the prices did not seem to be much of a deal to an American. For more information, you can check out my Paraguay page which is reached by the link below.

Foz do Iguacu - bird's eye view

by rui_bijie

There is no need to book an expensive helicopter flight - if you are flying with Varig. The pilots will make sure that all passengers have a perfect view on the falls from above:

The Iguacu National Park

by Willettsworld

The main tourist attraction in the area around Foz do Iguacu is the Iguacu National Park which is where you'll find the spectacular Iguacu Waterfalls. The National Park is split between Brazil and Argentina as the waterfalls lie over the border between the two countries. The Brazil side of the National Park was created in 1939 and it contains an area of 185,000 hectares of subtropical rain forest.

To reach the park, simply take a bus from the city bus station that is marked "Cataratas" or just say the word to someone and they'll point you in the right direction. Once at the park, pay and then get on one of the double-decker buses which will take you to the waterfalls.

Open: Mondays: from 1pm to 6pm, Tuesdays to Sundays: from 8am to 6pm.

Main Square

by andal13

Foz is a "green city"; its main square it is not an exception, so it has a lot of trees and all kind of plants. Its cool shadow is essential to rest if you decide to make a "walking-city-tour" as I did, because this city is really hot and its streets are really steep!

At Praça Almirante Tamandaré you will also find the Tourist Information Office.

Foz es una "ciudad verde"; su plaza principal no es la excepción, dado que tiene muchos árboles y todo tipo de plantas. Su sombra fresca es imprescindible para descansar si deciden hacer un "city tour caminado", como hice yo, porque esta ciudad es realmente cálida y sus calles son realmente empinadas!

En la Praça Almirante Tamandaré también encontrarán la Oficina de Información Turística.
