Organizing a trip to Iguazu Falls can be daunting. Many people arrange their travel prior to arrival in South America. This may ease worries but it can be a stressful situation for their wallets. Package tours might seem like the perfect answer for perplexed planners but they often offer little more than transportation from a major city. In addition, prices can be exorbitant when compared to an independent exploration.
Iguazu National Park, on the Argentine side of the border, is more popular than its counterpart on the Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls. Puerto Iguazu in Argentina is generally regarded as the best base for the area due to its superior lodging and dining options as well as safety.
The information office at the Puerto Iguazu bus terminal is a crucial first stop for independent travelers. They can help with accommodations and help you create an itinerary based on the local weather forecast.
Information is excellent inside Iguazu National Park as well. There is a kiosk near the front of the park and tour operators for adventure tours will help you purchase additional excursions within the park.
Signage in the park is excellent. Some signs mention hours of operation, other tell you what attractions are closed due to inclement weather, and some wood boards remind visitors DO NOT FEED THE ANIMALS. Seriously people don’t ignore this sign.
