Is it enough time to see the falls ?
Save

Hi Trying to squeeze in a trip to Iguazu in between Salta and Rio . If we land at IGR at 10 :55 am ( begining of July) and staying at Sheraton, do we have enough time to see the falls on Argentinian side ( inc boat ride etc) ? Next day we will have to go BR side and catch a flight to Rio at 14:10.Many thanks.

Yes staying in the National park makes easier. CI and drop your bags. Right out the door are the Falls.

Be sure to stop at the BR immigration's office to have passport stamped at the border. Thy check at the airport for entry stamps. If not stamped you will be sent upstairs in the airport to the Policia Federal's office. Many times lines are long and it is first come first served. By law they have the right to FINE you $400 reals pp, but depending on the agent they may waive such. So a few minutes at the border saves you the wrries.

HI Could you please tell me if we are staying at the Sheraton hotel , can we enter park before 8am? We arrive at Peurto Iguazu at about 8:40 pm. So we are thinking instead of staying at sheraton for the first night we can stay outside the park and next morning we can start early, go to Sheraton 7- 7:30 ish drop the baggage at the reception and by 8 am go to the falls. However, can't find any info on if we are allowed to enter the park ( being Sheraton guest) before 8 or not. After spending so much money ( 2 rooms !!) we would rather stay second night and enjoy evening there and may be go for moonlight walk. ( Do we need to book for this in advance ? any idea on price ?) We are there 3 days before full moon. Thanks.
