Day 1

Welcome to Your Day Tour to Iguazú Falls From Buenos Aires

Iguazu Falls waterfalls

 

  • Transfer from Puerto Iguazú airport to Iguazú Falls National Park, Argentine side.

Upon arrival, you will be met at the airport (or bus station) by our driver and bilingual local guide. We will pick you up and drive you to the National Park, on the Argentinian side,  a 7-hour excursion where you will experience the true power of Iguazú falls. We highly recommend that you don’t take any luggage with you, in order to be able to leave the airport more quickly.

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.

 

  • Wander Iguazú Falls National Park

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 Argentinian 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 to take a memory of your day-trip to Iguazú Falls from Buenos Aires, you will have some free time to eat lunch in this amazing environment.

Say Hueque Tips

  •  Where to eat lunch?

If you want to eat during the Iguazú Falls day tour we recommend the area called “Patio de servicios”, in every station of the ecological train and in the bar “Dos hermanas” (Two sisters). There are also two restaurants: “La selva” (The jungle) and “Fortin Cataratas” (Bunker Cataratas) which close around 3 pm. We recommend to grab a quick meal, take the time and find a peaceful spot to enjoy your first meal in the jungle.

 

  • Would you love to have a “Great Adventure”?

If you feel really adventurous, we recommend that you add on the “Gran Aventura” tour. 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, the falls provide a refreshing “natural shower”. Be sure to take some extra clothes if you want to do this excursion, although each person will be provided with a dry bag once on the boat. There is also approximately a 150 mts. staircase down and then back up to get to/from the boat dock).

 

  • Am I close to the airport?

Yes, indeed, so don’t be worried about timing! Check out the map to get an overall idea of distances in Iguazú.

 

  • What should I wear?

Comfortable is the word you’re looking for! Comfortable walking shoes, a hat, sunscreen and insect repellent.

FAQs
Where is Iguazu National Park located?

Iguazú National Park is located in the northeastern part of Argentina, near the border with Brazil and Paraguay. Specifically, the park is situated in the province of Misiones. The iconic Iguazú Falls, one of the most impressive waterfalls in the world, is the main attraction within the national park.

The Iguazú River, which forms the falls, serves as a natural border between Argentina and Brazil in this region. The park is easily accessible from the town of Puerto Iguazú, which is the gateway to the falls and a common base for visitors exploring the area.

The Iguazú National Park is renowned for its rich biodiversity, lush rainforest, and of course, the spectacular Iguazú Falls, making it a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most visited natural attractions in South America.

How long is the trip from Buenos Aries to Iguazu?

The Flight Duration is approximately 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on the specific flight and airport conditions.

I have time to visit the falls and bird park?

Yes, it is possible to visit both Iguazú Falls and the Parque Das Aves (Bird Park) in the same day, as they are located in close proximity to each other near Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil. The amount of time needed to explore Iguazú Falls can vary based on your chosen trails and viewpoints. A comprehensive visit to the falls, including both the Argentine and Brazilian sides, can take a full day. The bird park is smaller in comparison, and a visit typically takes around 1 to 2 hours, depending on your pace and interest in birdwatching.

If you are crossing the border between Argentina and Brazil, ensure that you have the necessary documentation (such as visas, if required) and plan for potential wait times at border crossings.

Should I take extra clothes?

Yes, you will likely get wet during a visit to Iguazú Falls, especially if you take certain boat tours or explore certain viewpoints. The sheer power of the falls creates a mist and spray that can be felt at various points throughout the park.

Even if you choose to stay on the drier viewing platforms, you may still feel some mist depending on weather conditions. Embrace the experience, and be prepared to enjoy the breathtaking views and the refreshing feeling of being close to the powerful Iguazú Falls.

Is the airport close to Iguazu Falls?

The main airport serving the Iguazú Falls area is the Cataratas del Iguazú International Airport (IGR). While the airport is relatively close to the falls, there is still a distance that needs to be covered to reach the town of Puerto Iguazú, the gateway to the falls. The airport is situated approximately 9 miles (15 kilometers) from the town of Puerto Iguazú, where most visitors stay when exploring Iguazú Falls. Taxis, shuttle services, and car rentals are available at the airport, providing transportation to Puerto Iguazú. The journey from the airport to Puerto Iguazú typically takes around 15 to 20 minutes, depending on traffic conditions. Once you reach Puerto Iguazú, the entrance to Iguazú National Park is approximately 8 miles (13 kilometers) away from the town. Travelers usually take additional transportation, such as buses or guided tours, to reach the entrance of the national park and access the falls.

Sunscreen and insect repellent are essential?

Yes, sunscreen and insect repellent are highly recommended when visiting Iguazú Falls, especially considering the tropical climate and the natural environment of the surrounding rainforest.
