Your Iguassu Falls From Both Sides 2-Day Package enables you to experience the awesome spectacle of the Iguassu from both sides of the river – Brazilian and Argentinean. It also includes 2 overnight stays and airport transfers. The exact timing of the tour, as well as the order in which the different activities are done, depends on the time of your flights and your personal preference. The itinerary given below is just a suggestion and can be altered to suit your needs.
You will be met at Cataratas International Airport and taken directly to your hotel. English-speaking staff will greet you when you clear the airport luggage area – just look for the local representative holding a sign with your name on it. You can discuss the precise details of your tour with the representative who collects you from the hotel.
Check in at your hotel. If it is evening, you might like to just rest and relax. Alternatively, if you arrive early in the day, you may like to start sightseeing immediately.
You will stay the night in a comfortable 3-star hotel. Dinner is available at the hotel (payable direct) or you might like to go out to a restaurant in town.
After breakfast in your hotel (included in your tour) you will be picked up driven to the Iguassu National Park. An English-speaking guide will accompany you.
Located on the Iguazú River, on the border between Brazil and Argentina, Iguassu Falls is one of world’s most impressive cataracts – 60 feet higher than Niagara and about 1 ½ times as wide.
The name Iguassu comes from the Guaraní Indian word meaning ‘great water’. The Falls consists of 275 separate waterfalls plunging 300 feet over a precipice more than 1 ½ miles across.
From the Visitor Center on the Argentinean side you can head down trails or ride a picturesque train (included in the entrance fee). There are two basic circuits: an upper path and a lower path.
The lower path (Paseo Inferior) leads to the base of the Falls where the headlong crash of the torrent releases a thick mist into the air. The upper path (Paseo Superior) leads you around the top rim of the precipice and affords breathtaking views from a strategically placed catwalk.
During the day you will enjoy a buffet lunch at a restaurant (included in your tour price).
At the end of the day you will return to your hotel in Foz do Iguassu. Dinner is not included.
After breakfast (included in tour price) you will be taken to the Brazilian side of the Falls. The Brazilian side is famous for the magnificent panoramas of spectacular Iguassu.
You will see stunning views of the famous feature known as The Devil´s Throat (or ‘Garganta del Diablo’). Here, 14 falls drop 350 feet with such force that a 100-foot tall cloud of mist is permanently suspended overhead. Watch for the rainbow!
For a close-up look, walk through the subtropical forest of Iguassu National Park to the base of Salto Floriano and take the elevator to the top of the Falls, or walk out over the Falls at Salto Union.
A buffet lunch in a restaurant is included in the tour.
At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel. At the appropriate time, a vehicle will meet you at your hotel and take you directly to the airport for your flight home.
