Scheduling Tips

The following tips are for people with limited time in Iguazu

 

Tip 1 – Save time by combining airport transfers with a visit to the falls – if you don´t have 2 full days to see both sides of the falls, then save time by combining an airport transfer with a visit to one side of the falls.  For example, we can pick you up and take you straight to the falls, and later pick you up again and take you to your hotel.   Alternatively, on the day you depart, we can first take you to the falls, and then pick you up later to take you to the airport.

Tip 2 – Transfer to both side of the falls on the same day – Although we believe you will have a better experience seeing each side of the falls on separate day’s, we understand that sometimes your travel plans and flight schedules do not allow this. In these cases, you may program your visit to both sides of the falls on the same day.

Brazil Side of the Falls

Brazilian Side of the Falls (Private Round Trip Transfer)

Your visit to the Brazilian Side of the falls is made in a private vehicle, which allows us to schedule your pickup time to suit your plans. You will be collected from your hotel in Foz do Iguaçu and driven across the border to Brazil stopping at the immigration controls. You will be dropped off at the entrance to the national park where you set the time and place for your return transfer directly with your driver.  Once you enter the park, there are free buses that take you to the start of the trail to the falls.  These same buses will later return you to the entrance.

Scheduling the Brazil Side of the Falls.
While making your reservation, you will be asked which day you want to visit the Brazilian falls, and it is possible to do it the day you arrive, or the day you depart if time allows. Or do it on a free day.

The day you arrive – if you choose this day, your flight needs to arrive before 13:00 pm to have enough time to cross the border and see the falls before they close.
