Iguazu Falls, both sides, starting in Brazil

We are planning to visit Iguazu Falls in October. We are coming from Rio and continuing on to Buenos Aires after seeing both sides of Iguazu. We are arriving at Iguazu in mid afternoon from Rio. What would be the best arrangement as far as where to spend the night to best explore the falls in a 2-day period of time? Thanks.

The Brazilian side of the Falls takes about 4 hours for visitation including the extra bird sanctuary. You can take a taxi from the airport and check your luggage at the visitors center.

After that I would proceed to your hotel accomodations on the Argentine side then continue with your visit the next day at the Argentine park.

We arrived at the Brazil side and got a taxi to the park, it's only about 2 minutes taxi ride but we had luggage and didn't see the bus, we paid 20R we asked at the souvenir shop where the lockers were and the girl sold us the token and accompanied us to the lockers which are just outside the shop. We visited the falls then asked at the info centre the best way to get to the Argentine side, they told us to get the bus outside to the Bourbon hotel, you can't miss it as there are loads of other tourists doing the same journey so everyone gets off at the same time, get off there cross the street then get another bus to Puerto iguazu. Before crossing the street a Spanish couple asked if we would like to split a taxi with them which we did , I think it cost 40R the taxi driver took our passports to the immigration window ad in 5 minutes we were on our way, we arrived in Puerto Iguazu about 20 minutes later, we stayed 2 nights in Puerto Iguazu and visited the Argentine side the next day, we were staying at the hotel St George which is directly across from the bus station which was good because the bus to the park leaves every 30 minutes from there.
