I was on a work trip in Posadas but definitely wanted to see the ruins. It was difficult to find a connecting coach that arrived before closing time, but fortunately an acquaintance gave me a ride to San Ignacio's bus terminal and I caught a...More
As a historic place, this is a fascinating mix of European religious tradition mixed with local indigenous cultural tradition. And as a UNESCO site, it is well-preserved and restored. The grounds are attractive as well. And there are interactive elements that could provide a lot...More
The ruins of the former monastry are already extremely fascinating during day light - the area is huge and gives a little impression how much energy and investment have been spent there. But the real highlight is the light show at night, telling the history...More
Very interesting history and beautiful ruins. But not enough time spent on the more gruesome details of the Guaranies' lives in the Mission, and how they came to live and work there. After prompting the tour guide I received a very vague and neutral answer....More
Writing this here as this is the most famous mission, arguably. We stayed in Puerto de Iguazu and hired a driver (Darío) to pick us up from our Air BnB at 6:30am. We arrived in the mission area about 10am. We started at a park...More
We visited in the late morning and bought tickets at the entrance for 200 pesos (this is the price for non-Argentinian residents). They run guided tours regularly which is included in the ticket price. We needed an English guide and as they don't get loads...More
We called here on a hot March day, and visited the ruins at about 5pm. Tickets were 160ARS per person, and include access to this site, as well as several other Jesuit sites within about 50km.
The ticket does not include the sound and light...More
It's a gorgious place - and it says somehow as much about present as about past: How complicated the administration, how poor the installations and informations!? It's a risk of World Heritages all over the world that they take the money but do not use...More
It is an amazing experiment the one done by Jesuits in this area of Southern America. Communism driven by religion. And it worked. I recommend everyone to read all about the experience and to seethe movie on this.

Hi Walter. We did this in February, and it's not too tricky to do on a bus. We actually travelled from Resistencia, and caught a bus up to San Ignacio which we used as a base (San Ignacio Mini is excellent, especially the evening S&L show). It's about an hour from Posades to SI.
From there you can get busses to the other two local sites on the same ticket as Mini, or hire a bike from the little place in-between the foot bridge and the bus station on the high way.
There are a few busses from San Ignacio to Puerto Iguazu, which is about 5 hours (buy tickets in SI bus station).
We got an early bus (8.30) as it gave us an extra afternoon in Iguazu - in case it rained (which it did!)
Also consider, from Posadas, taking a day trip into Encarnacion and visiting the Paraguayan missions. We didn't, but they are supposed to be fabulous.
Try the rome2rio web site for good info on public transport.
Have a fab trip - we did!
