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. The ride took about 45 minutes. The bus departs from the same place where it arrives. You can pay ...

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 ...

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'.

I just recently visited both and they are quite different. The Argentinian side is much bigger with many viewpoints on the falls including 3 or 4 pleasant trails that can easily fill a day. The Brazillian side is beautiful too, I wouldn't say it's less beautiful as some say it's more intense and concentrated in one main area and you feel the strength of ...

I've emailed Itaipu at info@turismoitaipu[dot]com.br and it turns out the question is moot: they're canceling the catamaran tour (both the day and sunset tours) after TODAY (Dec 18, 2019). What are the odds. Unfortunately today is the last day of Kattamaram ride, after the ride today will be disabled and no plans to return. May make the tour of the ...

NSA is the main bus operator on the route. At Busbud we usually sell their tickets and had figured out some issues around booking for foreigners. Unfortunately, it looks like our connection to their system is down right now. We'll investigate. Here's a schedule for Asunción to Ciudad del Este from NSA's site. Good news is you would be able to get on a bus ...

To not rush, and to be able to really take in the spectacle, you should consider taking a large part of a day to visit Iguazu Falls, on either side. With this, I'm saying that you shouldn't try to visit both sides on the same day. But, visiting the falls on the other side is very easy. You can take one of the many regular public buses that travel between ...

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, ...

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 Hemisphere....

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 Ciudad del Este (it'll likely just say 'Paraguay'), and it travels across into Brazil to Foz Iguacu, and then across another bridge into Ciudad del Este. You'll go through customs/border at Argentina/Brazil, and then...probably again going into ...

You can't actually cross at the falls, so you would have to backtrack, twice, anyway. The total distance would come down to about 100km. See screenshot of the route. I'm quite sure the ferry between Argentina and Paraguay runs from within the town of Foz to the tri-border point on the Paraguayan side. If you zoom in on the Google Map, you can see what are ...

To address the logistical part of the question, the Wikivoyage page on Ciudad del Este, Paraguay notes the following: The most common way to arrive is across the Puente de la Amistad (Friendship Bridge) which connects Ciudad del Este in Paraguay and Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil. There are frequent bus connections, also to and from Puerto Iguazú in Argentina. ...
