Bus tickets in advance???

by irmaazul

Hi, Sadly we don't have much time on our trip and must stick to planned dates, so I was wondering if anyone knew of a website where I can buy my tickets from Curitiba to Foz do Iguacu in advance and tickets from Foz do Iguacu to Campo Grande too. I saw Catarinense (running a Curitiba-Foz do Iguacu route) has an online buying area, but it is only for Brazilian nationals. And Eucatur (running the Foz do Iguacu-Campo Grande route) doesn't offer online purchases.

We really don't want to miss the buses we need to be on to keep the itinerary. Any suggestions???

Re: Bus tickets in advance???

There are a lot of buses to/from the destinations you mentioned and I don't think you'd have to buy the tickets in advance. There are even first-class buses (seats that become comfortable beds – they are called "Leitos"). But if you're buying way in advance I'd advise you to try to buy airline tickets. Like Gol Airlines have good fares (it's compared to the Southwest fares in the US) or Varig.
I'd done those trips either by bus and plane. The airplane trip saves you time and it's much more comfortable; on the other hand one gets to see more of the country and meet more (friendly) locals traveling by bus.

Except for the busiest periods of the year (principally Christmas), Brazilians don't buy their bus tickets far in advance, just the day before (or on the day itself). You shouldn't have a problem. Boa viagem!

Travel Tips for Foz do Iguaçu

A great riverside location

by acemj

The three cities in this part of the world are Foz do Iguacu in Brazil, Puerto Iguazu in Argentina and the slightly more seedy Ciudad del Este in Paraguay. From the perspective of Foz, the Rio Iguacu provides the border between it and Argentina and the Rio Parana divides it from Paraguay. It's a bit strange, though that the city doesn't seem to come right up to the river's edge. There are no long boardwalk sor high-priced condos taking up valuable riverside locations. In fact, it's actually rather difficult to get yourself down to the edge of the river, so I'd suggest just enjoying it from the higher vantage point of the center of Foz do Iguacu's downtown.

Argentina

by acemj

As long as you're here, be sure to visit the waterfalls from the Argentine side of the border too. The Parque Nacional de Iguazu in Argentina really brings you up close to the falls and gives you a completely different perspective on the place. Also, check out Puerto Iguazu if you have the time.

Parque Nacional do Iguaçu

by ATXtraveler

Given that you are considering going to Foz do Iguaçu by the fact that you are reading this page, this tip seems almost redundant. The reason this part of the Brazilian countryside is even being talked about is the beautiful and majestic waterfalls that are here. When considering the location however, you should research how much time you have to visit the area before deciding which side of the park to visit. The Argentinian side will get you up close and personal to the falls, whereas the Brazilian side makes for a better overview of the area and has some great panoramas of the entire area. If you are there for more than one day, I would recommend seeing both sides.

The Brazilian side is great, and seems a little more developed as a tourist destination, with quite a few great paved walkways and some nice cafes and restaurants. There are also a ton of other activities available to you, including the jungle safari and river rafting. It is easily worth an entire day or three, so make sure you take the time to enjoy it!

Itaipu Dam

by acemj

The hydroelectric plant at Itaipu is the world's largest such facility producing 90% of the energy needs of Paraguay and 25% for Brazil. Indeed, the output measured in megawatts is unsurpassed anywhere in the world. The Brazilians are extremely proud of this place, which will become painfully obvious if you visit here and take the free tour. The tour starts with a video filled with impressive statistics and beautiful images of children frolicking in water. It's like a paid advertisement for Brazilian modernity and achievement. In my opinion, it's a little too bent toward Brazil's contribution and not enough credit is given to Paraguay, which is a partner with Brazil in the operation. Plus, there's not enough information about the amazing construction about the place. However, the sight of the dam itself is impressive and once again, the tour is FREE!

Iguacu Falls - Brazilian side - up close

by Willettsworld

This is the last waterfall you'll come to and it runs near a viewing platform which is quite near. You then make your way up in a lift for a higher view where there's another souvenir shop and a restaurant. This area is called the Naipi Area.
