    • Fiancé visa

      Brazil Jan 31, 2016 at 6:50 PM

      Hi, would anyone have some good information on the best way to get my fiancé here to the US so that we can get married. I know there is a fiancé visa but there's also something called the k3. Reading the site it appears they require meeting in person before granting a fiancé visa. Idk if that's the case or not. Thanks

      Hello everyone. I will be in Rio for only two days at the end of May. Because my time is limited I think it's best to go with a guide. There are several forums/websites with recommendations but I'd like to see what everyone here has to say. Thanks!

      Hi, we are living in Ireland, but currently in Belo Horizonte but hope to move to Florianopolis for a few months in Feb. My husband is from Brasil and our children are 15 and 11. They love the sea and surfing. Can anyone offer advise as to where might be the best area to find accomadation there and the nicest and safest part to live in? We would ideally like to be within walking distance from the beach or skate board/basketball/soccer parks as we won't have a car. But we can take the bus too. Thanks a million for any tips. Alice

      Do I have to pay USD160 for an Argentina visa for a one day trip to see the Iguazu Falls?

      by Stroller Online Now Sep 13, 2015 at 11:47 PM

      I've read that you now have to pay USD160 for an Argentina visa for a one day trip to see the Iguazu Falls on the Argentina size. Is that true? I visited the Argentina size of the falls in 2002 and my taxi driver took my passport and got the visa for me at the border. I don't think it costed that much at all. Many thanks for your advice!

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

      by LynetteMarie Online Now 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?

      by Naramata Online Now Jan 6, 2014 at 5:45 PM

      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!

      by gambit187 Online Now Oct 26, 2012 at 11:39 AM

      Hi

      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...??

      by darrensunley Online Now Dec 20, 2011 at 7:52 AM

      Hi,

      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,
      Darren

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

      by swdke Online Now 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!

      HI all,
      my wife and I and a colleague are looking for a comfortable hotel ($50 to80 a night) near (within a couple of kilometers) the Mabu Thermas and Resort in Foz do Iguassu. We'll be there the first week of August for 6 days (is this high season for tourists within Brazil?).

      While there we want to spend a day or two traveling in Paraguay. How long is the trip by bus to Asuncion from Foz do Iguasssu?
