      Rio to Florianopolis

      Brasília Jun 21, 2014 at 1:04 AM

      In March next year I will be attending a wedding in Florianopolis, Brazil.

      I will be flying into Rio and the total trip should give me 8 full days in the beautiful country.

      I'd like some advice on places to visit (including Iguazu Falls) during my time there, any hidden wonders, beautiful beaches, villages etc etc.

      I'm thinking of hiring a car in Rio and driving down, would that work?

      Any advice would be much appreciated as long as it's in a reachable distance of that stretch of coastline.

      Hi folks

      So my girlfriend and I need to spend a few nights in (or around) Foraleza during the World Cup. BAD TIMING!
      Availability is shy and prices are extreme. So we're thinking of skipping off to another town/village direct after landing there.

      Does anyone have any recommendations that would be:
      1) With possible access from the international airport after landing at 19:00 in the evening.
      2) Cheaper accommodation possibilities.

      Yours hopefully

    • Is it really $160 to see the Argentinian side of the falls when staying on the Brazil side?

      Iguassu Jan 28, 2014 at 12:46 PM

      I've read that as of Jan. 2013 U.S. passport holders must now pay $160 for a transit pass to visit the Argentinian side of Iguazu Falls from the Brazil side. This seems extremely expensive for one day of walking and exploring across the border to then return to lodging on the Brazilian side. Is this correct? Is there a National Park Pass or tour which avoids this?

      Iguazu Falls, Argentina Taxi or Bus?

      We will be arriving at IGR(Argentinian airport) at 09:15 and plan on spending the day seeing the Argentinian side of the falls for most of the day. We will store our luggage at the entrance to the park. We will then travel across the border to Foz do Iguaçu, where our accommodations are. My question is: what is the best way to get from IGR to the park entrance? Then, what is our best way to cross to Brazil at the end of the day? What cost can we expect for any service recommended? We already have our Brazilian Visas.
      Thanks for any responses.

      Help on cost and how to get there!

      Iguassu Oct 26, 2012 at 11:39 AM


      Me and wife landing IGR airport (Argentinian side therefore) at 11.30 am from EZE (BA)

      We are staying two nights.
      We have not booked accommodation yet but will be cheap - maybe a hostel or apartment. We think we should book in Puerto Iguazu (Arg side).

      We wish to see both sides.

      1) So do we stay in Argentina side and find room there first question?

      2) Then can we go from here to see Brazil side on first day after landing straight away because people say it can be seen half day?

      3) How do we get to Brazil side and how much will it cost and how long will it take to get there in taxi or bus?

      4) How much will it cost to enter the park for Brazil side?

      Second day we see Argentina side.

      5) Again how do we get there how much will it cost and how long will it take to get there in taxi or bus?

      6) How much will it cost to enter the park for full day?

      We leave Iguazu from IGU NOT IGR because we go to Rio and flight is 3 times cheaper.

      7) How do we got to IGU from Puerto Iguazu (Arg side) and how much will it cost and how long will it take by bus or taxi. (Flight is 9.30 am and we have to check in 7.30).

      Please help I would love all of your advice.

      Thank you so much.

      Which country to stay in...??

      Iguassu Dec 20, 2011 at 7:52 AM


      I am due to be doing a family trip to South America at the end of Feb 2012 and we are planning to visit the Iguassu Falls area. However, whilst I definitely want to see the falls from both sides and see the Itapu dam, I am wondering if someone could recommend where it would be best to stay?

      I've heard that Ciudad Del Este is not a particularly nice place, but assumed that I'd need to stay here at least one night to make it easy to go and see the dam - but now I believe it is possible to do this from the Brazilian side too (thus meaning there'd be no need to stay in CdE)... is this true?

      Also, is it worth trying to stay in just one place and do all of the sightseeing and waterfall viewing from that place as a base.... or is it worth splitting our time between Foz do Iguazu and Puerto Iguazu just in order to (a) see both places and/or (b) make it easier to visit certain things?

      Finally, can anyone recommend either any places to stay in these towns or any other worthwhile sightseeing activities other than the dam and the falls?

      Thanks in advance,

      How to visit Iguazu Falls, what to see/do in a day, and how?

      Iguassu Dec 14, 2011 at 7:29 AM

      I wish to visit Iguazu Falls, will be arriving IGU airport in the late afternoon, hoping to stay at the Sheraton, and will be there two nights. This leaves one full day for visiting Iguazu Falls.

      1st: I assume it's easy to take a taxi to the Sheraton from IGU? I've read here on FT that it shouldn't be a problem, correct?

      2nd: I'd like to see and do as much as possible in my one full day, what is recommended to see and do it all? I'd like to visit both sides, Brazil and the Argentina sides. Are there recommended tours? Do I pre-book such tours in advance? What should I not miss? I read some say it's best to see the Brazil side in the morning. If I stay at the Sheraton, how do I get to the Brazil side, and can I return to see the Argentina side? Basically, how can I see everything in a day?

      All information is greatly appreciated, thanks!

      Looking to be an English teacher/tutor in Fortaleza

      I'm planning to move to the Fortaleza area to establish some business ventures and marry my Brazilian fiancée. But as a backup plan, I'd like to teach English privately. I would like to find a private school in need of a literate, native English speaker. My fiancée and I have even been talking about starting an English school (she is an English teacher, too).

      I test better than the 99th percentile in competency, and have experience tutoring English to speakers of many languages. I'm doing well at learning Portuguese and became quite popular on for my detailed explanation of English difficulties - in Portuguese. Although I've not obtained an ESL certification, I would certainly do so if really necessary.

      Any advice on where to look?
