This is how we did it today: From the Puerto Iguazu (Argentina) bus station a bus of the travel company "Crucero del Norte" goes directly to the Waterfall Park on the Brazilian side. This bus leaves every 2 hours. The last bus going back again starts at 5 pm. It cost 50 pesos per person going there and back. The ride took about 45 minutes. The bus departs ...

Buses are great - in Argentina, they're comfortable, serve food, and reliable. Pick one going overnight, sleep on the bus (get full-cama, not semi-cama - your seat will become a bed!) and be there in the next day! Head to Retiro bus station in Buenos Aires, they all go from there, go upstairs to the 2nd floor and to the area for north-bound buses. There ...

There is a bus station in Puerto Iguazu and buses leave every hour or so for the Argentinian side of the falls and were fairly cheap. You have to pay an entrance fee for the park and can get optional boat tours of the river below the falls and above them. I did both and it was worth it. The Argentinian side has walkways and bridges that take you right out ...

You could take a bus, which will take around 18 hours and cost about 500 pesos. One recommended company is Via Bariloche http://www.viabariloche.com.ar/ You might be able to make reservations on their website (usually difficult or impossible with a foreign credit card), but for buses buying the ticket a day or two in advance is usually sufficient. Your ...

On Brazilian side it is possible (unlike the Argentinian side) to pay with credit cards, so you don't really need to have Reals in cash. There is a bus between Puerto Iguazu (city on Argentinian side) and Foz do Iguacu (Brazilian city), and when you're in Brazil, you can take another bus to the entry to the park. It is bus No. 120 to 'Parque Nacional'.

~15 hours is not that long to be on the road in Argentina. ;-) You can indeed save time by flying, but if you're not in a hurry, buses are comfortable and a lot cheaper. (Especially since foreigners have to pay more than locals on AerolĂ­neas Argentinas, or so I've heard/read). A site called Plataforma 10* is great for checking Argentine bus timetables ...

I recently came back from a 6 month trip to Argentina where I also visited Iguazu falls. I only stayed on the Argentine side instead of crossing over to the Brazilian side. I will tell you one thing that I didn't see mentioned in the comments. You should add way more time to whatever you plan on doing because it is currently summer in the Southern ...

As long as you have a valid passport and you are allowed to enter into Brazil from Argentina, yes, you can do that. When I went to the Iguazu waterfalls I was staying in a Hotel in Brazil, but I spent a couple of days on the Brazilian side and a couple of days on the Argentinian side. I passed the border a couple of times per day without any issue. Just ...

Have you looked at the map? That's a long ways away. I don't know exactly but it's going to take a few days to get from Uyuni to Iguazu. What's going to take you longest is having to stop at destinations while waiting for the next busy. I recommend not trying to go straight through and instead make a few stops and enjoy the local places where very few people ...

It's entirely possible, cheap, and simple. Go to the main bus terminal in Puerto Iguazu. Get on a bus going to Cuidad de Este (it'll likely just say 'Paraguay'), and it travels across into Brazil to Foz Iguacu, and then across another bridge into Cuidad de Este. You'll go through customs/border at Argentina/Brazil, and then...probably again going into ...

There are hardly any lines at the border. But when I was going by bus from Brazilian to Argentinian side, and had to step off the bus to get my passport stamped (which took maybe 5 minutes for 10 people), the bus driver did not wait for us. We had to wait for the next bus, which go every 30 minutes. Then, going from Argentine to Brazilian airport by bus, ...
