GREAT NEWS!-ARGENTINA OPENS BORDERS FROM 1ST NOV
Today we’ll take you to the bus station. Get ready to depart to Puerto Iguazú in a fully equipped bus with a bathroom, heating and air conditioning (box dinner and breakfast are also provided on board). Hit the road like Argentinians do: Relax and enjoy the view, this is your chance to see a sunset on the road! Sleep well and wake up surrounded by green landscape and red soil.
“So you want to take a bus to Iguazú falls?”. You need to be prepared to travel all night and sleep over in the bus. Wear comfortable clothing, take an extra pair of socks or a blanket in case it gets colder at night. If you want to make this trip a truly local experience, take your “mate” equipment with you. This teatype beverage is our national drink, a time-honored tradition and a must-bring item on any road trip you will do in Argentina.
Upon arrival, we will meet at the bus station and we will drive you to your hotel.
You have just arrived to Iguazú! The small border town of Puerto Iguazú is the gateway to visit the impressive Iguazú Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders and a UNESCO World Heritage site, making it a must-see destination for any traveler visiting Argentina.Answer the call of vacations and take your time to relax at your hotel (most of them have a pool) or enjoy your free day by taking any of the optional tours to discover Iguazú.
Our recommended activities to explore and learn about Puerto Iguazú:
Today our driver and bilingual guide will pick you up from your hotel and drive you to the National Park, on the Argentinian side. Enjoy a 7-hour tour wandering through the rainforest!
The falls are surrounded by a humid subtropical forest where the exuberant vegetation is home to many different animals and birds. Our guide will help you spot some of them: ant birds, toucans, manakins, parrots, coatis, just to name a few of the most common birds. Lower and upper walkways weave in and around falls permitting up close and personal experiences with this magnificent spectacle of nature.
The Argentine side of the falls is filled with a myriad of paths and walkways and stairways which allow you to have an experience from many different perspectives. You will have the chance to meet “The Devil’s throat”: the largest of the falls and for many the most spellbinding. To get to the “Devil’s throat” you take the ecological train and then walk out along boardwalks. After walking and taking pictures of animals and plants, you will have some free time to eat lunch in this amazing environment. At the end of the experience, we will drive you back to your hotel.
The “Great Adventure” (gran aventura) is an optional tour you can add on this day. You will take an open air jeep through the rainforest and then a zodiac open air boat ride up the river to the base of the falls (there is a 100% chance that you will get soaking wet on this boat trip, so be sure to take some extra clothes!).
After breakfast, enjoy a 3-4 hour excursion to the Brazilian side of the Iguazú Falls. While Argentina has 80% of the falls on its side, Brazil has the best panoramic view. On the Argentinian side you will have the sensation of being right inside the falls, but only by visiting the Brazilian side you will fully appreciate the immensity of Iguazú falls. Take your time to enjoy it and feel it, to stroll the different walkways and feel the spray of water in your face. Take the boardwalk over the Salto Santa María, it feels like walking on the water. Get closer to the “Devil’s Throat” and feel the power of water! We are sure this is a day you will never forget. At the end of the day we will drive you back to your hotel.
At the appropriate time we will drive you to the bus station where your jungle journey will end.
If you don’t want to end this 4-day tour in Iguazú Falls, today you can choose to extend your travels adding on any optional activities, touring in Brazil, Patagonia or the Andes area or return back to Buenos Aires.
For the tour to the Brazilian side of the Iguazú Falls, don’t forget your passport! You will be crossing the border. If you are required to have a visa to enter Brazil, take it with you during the excursion. A good repellent and sun blocking is always a must when you visit the rainforest.
