Buses between the falls and the pantanal?

by rgreenstein

Hello - I would like to take a bus from Foz do Iguaçu to the pantanal. I know there are a few cities there and I think Campo Grande is the biggest. But so far I've not had any luck finding buses that run between the two in my guide books and on line. Before I book flights to get from the pantanal to Rio, I want to make sure I'll be able to get to campo grande etc in the first place! Any names of bus companies/website I can look into?
Thanks, Rose

Do you know how large Brasil is? And those two places are not exactly next to each other. It will take several days to go between those two points. I would highly consider flying. Either Varig or TAM, maybe both, offer Brasilian flight passes, which are four flight coupons for $400. If you insist on busing it, there is some kind of bus pass which allows you to ride the bus as many times within a certain period of time. I know nothing else about it.

Of course there are buses from Foz do Iguaçu to the southern Pantanal.
Do the following: take the bus in Foz do Iguaçu to Bonito (see internet, very good nature walks!) Eventually you have to take first to Dourados and further on
to Bonito.
From Bonito you have a bus directly to the Pantanal. The company "Cruzeiro do Sul" makes this trips. The trip is 35 reals and takes more or less 5 to 6 houres because of the sand ways.
Ask for "Buraco das Piranhas". This is the buspoint, every knows it there. From here you can get guides for taking you in the Pantanal.
See on: www.gilspantanaldiscovery.com.br
Or: www.pantanaltrekking.com
They do it for almost 40, Euro a day, all included.
Take contact with them via the site and make it clear to take you in "Buraco das Piranhas" and after to drop you in Campo Grande. Normally they do the inverse sens of the way.
If you cannot get the guides, take the bus than to Corumbà. There are several companies who will take you in the Pantanal;
Enjoy the Pantanal because it is the most beautiful region of South America.
For more info: contact me;
I am not connected to any company.
I lived there and made more than 30 trips in the Pantanal.
Regards.

A couple of years ago two companies ran buses between Foz do Iguacu and Campo Grande. Depending on the class of service, the travel time was 24 or more hours and the cost was R$113 to R$185. This is one link, though I don't know how current it is:

The falls are scenic and interesting. Campo Grande is interesting only as a jumping off point to the southern Pantanal.

Buses also run from Foz to Cuiaba, a more interesting city and gateway to the northern Pantanal.

Travel Tips for Foz do Iguaçu

Diversity

by acemj

The largest mosque in Brazil (according to a cabbie) is located here in Foz do Iguacu. I saw it from a distance and the gold dome is pretty impressive. You'll also see signs for a Buddhist Temple on your way out to the Itaipu Dam. And, of course, this is Brazil, a Catholic country, so you'll see a few churches in the area.

All of these religions seem to exist rather peacefully, but the area does have a reputation for housing some troublemakers.

You might also notice that the population here is more bilingual than in most parts of Brazil because of the location being so close to two Spanish speaking countries. Still, most people don't speak English, but if you can get by in Spanish you'll find communicating is easier here than in places like Rio.

Beyond Belief

by Assenczo

Originally, the plan was to use buses to conquer the significant distance between Rio de Janeiro and Foz de Iguaçu but the reality massacred it. First, when I tried to go the "Brazilian" way with a "leito" bus, meaning sleeper class, it was impossible to board it from Rio; just from Sao Paulo. This meant a change of buses in Sao Paulo many hours of travel and as I was prompted by a benevolent concierge, significant danger to the stomach. The food bought along the route would be of questionable quality.
Second, the price of the bus ticket combined with the food expenditures would amount to exactly half the price of the airplane ticket. Considering that the plane crosses the same distance ten times faster, it was a huge bargain. Varig is fabulous - one can book and buy a ticket the day before departure for a price not affected by the proximity of purchase and flight.

NATIONALISTIC SHOW OFF

by schurlif

As mentioned before the Rio Iguaçu forms the border between Brazil and Argentina and where this river flows into Rio Parana both countries meet their border with Paraguay. Picture # 1 was taken on the Argentinian side , so on the right background is Brazil , on the left across the river is Paraguay and on picture # 2 Camila on the foreground stands in Brazil , the middle background with the hotel type building above her hat is Argentina and background right is Paraguay...... Each country constructed a beacon like little tower with the colors of the respective countries flag ( picture # 3 ) , something I find quite pathetic because to me it doesn't mean like : " Hey , here I end..." but rather : "Hey , watch out !! Here I start !!" But as long as the three countries are good neighbors and don't engage in a bloody , senseless war as they did in 1865 - 1870 , it's ok to show off the national colors a little bit.... The last two pictures show some funny photo op gadgets on the Brazilian side representing the legend of the indio couple and how the waterfalls came to be and a Carmen Miranda make look a like... Camila looking perfectly like the woman with the fruit hat....

close up

by pepples46

when you wanna take a close up, course a wide lens is ideal, but wrap up your camera anyway, a thin plastic bag will do the trick, or plastic wrap roll, the one you wrap your sandwiches in when at home. the lens will be lightly blurred, but it gives a good effect, have a look, click on the pic

Iguacu Falls - Argentine side

by Willettsworld

Allow yourself a whole day on the Argentine side as there's a lot to get around. After entering the park, there's a small train that takes you up to the boardwalk that goes out right to the lip of Devils Throat. The amount of water that goes over the top is amazing. Then there's an upper trail that takes you right over some of the other waterfalls and a lower trail that takes you right beside one.
