  • Argentina: Iguazu Falls Extension
Overview

Witness the largest waterfall system in the world

Located on the border of Argentina and Brazil, Iguazu Falls is the largest waterfall system in the world. Crossing from one side to the other is not difficult, and is actually recommended; while the Argentine side immerses you in the falls, the Brazilian side offers the best panoramic views. Our journey allows you to do both, and fully experience the beauty of this natural wonder. You’ll walk along Iguazu’s impressive collection of waterfalls and feel the mist from the stunning Garganta del Diablo. Surrounded by tropical jungle and home to incredible biodiversity, Iguazu Falls offers a sense of perfect harmony with nature.

Itinerary & Accommodations

Day 1

Puerto Iguazu

Welcome to Iguazu! The small and relaxing town is the gateway to visit the impressive Iguazu Falls, recently named as one of the New Seven Natural Wonders of the World and a must-see destination for any traveler visiting Argentina. Upon arrival, you will be met at the airport by your guide and provided a private transfer to your hotel inside Iguazu Falls to check in.

This afternoon, you enjoy a private, half day excursion to the Brazilian side of the Iguazu Falls. Here, vast panoramic views allow you to gaze in awe at the falls in their entirety, and begin to understand their sheer size and power from a distance. Please note, if your flight arrives later in the day, this activity may be rescheduled for the morning of Day 3.

Accommodations
Meliá Iguazú Hotel

Meliá Iguazú Hotel
Misiones, Argentina

Located inside Iguazu National Park and only a 10-minute walk from the falls, the Meliá Iguazú offers clean and modern decor, an onsite bar and restaurant, and a seasonal outdoor swimming pool.

Day 2

Iguazu National Park

Your guide will meet you in the lobby after breakfast, and from there you explore the hidden gems of this unique National Park on foot. Lower and upper walkways along the falls offer up-close and personal experiences with this magnificent sight. Trails throughout the reserve provide visitors with various views of Iguazu Falls, especially the largest one, Devil's Throat. The Ecological Jungle Train is included for all those visiting the park, and will allow you to move from one area to the next.

Please note that once inside the park, additional excursions are available for an additional cost. The most popular option is "Gran Aventura," which begins with a short overland drive through the rainforest, learning about the flora and fauna. Upon arrival at a dock, you board a boat which takes you right up to the base of the falls! This exciting excursion is highly recommended in order to experience the true power of Iguazu Falls, and costs $50 per person. Please note you will get wet! We recommend bringing a change of clothes if you would like to join this adventure.

This evening you will be transferred back to your hotel, where you can relax and dine at your leisure.

Today you will be transferred to the airport in time for your flight to Buenos Aires, where a driver will meet you to transfer either to the international airport for your flight home or to your hotel in Buenos Aires as you embark on your Patagonia adventure.

Additionally, those who have not already done so will visit the Brazilian side of the falls this morning if it was rescheduled from Day 1.

Please note that this is a typical itinerary, and actual activities may vary due to weather conditions, local events, and to allow serendipity to play a hand in your experience. Accommodations are as outlined in the itinerary, although we reserve the right to change these or the order visited should the need arise.
