      form to pay reciprocity fee

      Argentina Jul 1, 2015 at 2:38 PM

      Thanks, everyone, for the info about getting to the correct travel site to pay the reciprocity fee. I'm confused!
      I entered the Provincia Pagos website and registered.
      Then I received an email verifying that my account has been created. No entry code was included, as per the directions. The only info in the email was my user name and password. There's an X'ed out picture, so no clue as to what that's about...
      The directions tell me to click "continue" the website to complete the process, however when I click on it I loop back to the same directions page instead of a form described where I input my personal and credit card info.
      Has anybody been through the process that can help? I am beyond frustrated.
      Thank you!

    • Need info to make appropriate airline reservation from Buenos Aires to Iguazu Falls

      Buenos Aires Jul 1, 2015 at 3:04 PM

      We will be overnight in Buenos Aires and only have one day available to go to Iguazu Falls
      Argentina side. So we can take the flight from AEP to IGR at 5:40 AM that gets in at 7:25 or the one that depart Buenos Aires at 9:05 and gets in at 11 AM. My concern is that the later flight we lose 2 hrs of precious sightseeing time since the park opens at 9AM...but then if we take the earlier flight we have to be at the airport at what time????? in order to make the flight. In that case we may lose sleep time. To me the sightseeing is more precious than sleep as we will not have the opportunity to every go again...BUT on the otherhad if we need to be there hours before then loss of sleep can make us too tired to enjoy what we are seeing. Your recommendations will be most helpful!

    • Read the warnings-Now I am scared

      Buenos Aires Yesterday

      I understand "be ware", but reading the "dangers" section has me downright scared. I am not sure if there are certain areas to stay away from...or if this is directed to normal tourist areas...but it sounded like even the nice areas are suspect. We have not made hotel reservations yet so further information will be appreciated. I never wear flashy jewelry and such and I certainly don't look elite, but that being said, if I am a tourist and want to take pictures I usually will have a camera around my neck and that screams tourist!
      We arrive at EZE in the evening and then our flight to Iguazu is early the next morning (probably the 5:40 am flight out of aep) so I was thinking of getting a hotel near aep airport to cut down the travel time in the morning. Is this an okay plan or do I need to rethink it? What hotel or area do you recommend. We will have large suitcases that we will be leaving with the hotel while we are overnight in Iguazu, so the hotel needs to be reputable. Then the next day we will gly back to BA and stop buy the hotel on our way to our cruise and pick up the other that way we only take one with us for the overnight. Otherwise, we will be traveling with two each plus a very small carryon (with the laptop)...and my husband is 72 years old so I really need to make things as easy as possible for us.

      Seeing iguazu Falls

      Puerto Iguazú Oct 29, 2014 at 9:31 AM

      I am planning to spend one night on the Brazil side of the falls and three nights on the Argentina side of the falls.
      Is this the best plan?
      How difficult/costly is it to cross the border from Brazil to Argentina?
      Should I find one hotel for my entire stay and go to both sides?

    • Brazil/Argentina trip

      Puerto Iguazú Apr 21, 2014 at 7:51 AM

      My wife and I are both british citizens. We are travelling to Rio, then planning to travel to Iguazu on our way to Buenos Aires. We would like to visit both sides of the falls, but we're coming from Foz du Iguacu Airport on a Friday and then travelling out from Puerto Iguazu Airport on the Monday (intending a day for each side of the falls). Is it better to stay in a hotel on the Brazilian or Argentinian side (we do not intend to stay at one of the more expensive places near the falls unfortunately). If we have just come from Brazil is it easier to stay there and then travel over just for our day trip to the Argentine side and then our trip to the airport on the Monday, or are we better to cross the border when we arrive on the Friday and nip back into Brazil for the day? We would rather stay in one hotel for the duration.

      Is customs a reasonably straight forward job?

      Does anybody know how I would get from Puerto Iguazu to Iguazu Falls (Argentinian side), and also the next day I will be visiting the Brazilian side, where would the best place be to visit next in Brazil? I am planning to travel through all of Brazil so preferably somewhere close to Iguazu Falls to start off with, also would you recommend visiting other places around here such as Chile, Peru, Paraguay, Bolivia, etc. Thank you!

      I know this is a little bit weird but I'm seeking someone/buscando a una persona

      Puerto Iguazú Jan 2, 2014 at 8:28 AM

      We travelled to Puerto Iguazu from Brazil on 30th of December. We were waiting for the bus to Argentina and a guy came and joined us. Waited together, passed the border, helped each other, chat a little bit. Then at the Argentina office I lost him without saying goodbye or thanks.

      So, if you know someoneo traveled from.Rio de Janeiro to a city in Argentina via Foz de Iguaçu and Puerto Iguazu on 30th of December, please say him I am searching for him. Or thank him for me.

      Any advices to contact him is welcome btw.

      Thanks folks, in advance.

      Planning to be in Iguazu for 2.5 days at the beginning of October, but just discovered that I am not a candidate for yellow fever vaccine and am wondering if reasonable caution (bug repellent, long sleeves/pants) is sufficient or if I must cancel this lap of my trip. Don't want to, but don't want to be frightened all the time either. Are there places within the site to avoid, times of day to stay indoors? Are the hotels "safe"? Grateful for your thoughts.

      Staying in Puerto Iguazu or Foz do Iguacu

      Puerto Iguazú May 1, 2011 at 8:08 PM

      My friend and I are planning to visit Argentina in late August this year. We probably will be staying in the Iguazu Falls area for a couple of days. Based on the comments on VT, it looks like we should visit both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides to get a better perspective of the falls.

      Can you recommend which we should base ourselves in, in terms of safety, price and convenience? We will mostly likely be flying in from Buenos Aires, unless there are direct flights from Salta or Mendoza.

      A related question about Brazilian visas: While I understand from the forum posts that it is possible to get a visa when we get to Puerto Iguazu, or somehow arrange for a driver to get us to Brazil without one, for our peace of mind, we rather get all the proper papers before we leave for S.A. from Canada. I saw on the Brazil Consulate Toronto website that we need to show our travel itinerary before they would grant us the visa. Is that true? If I just have plane tickets to Puerto Iguazu, can I just attach that itinerary and with my visa application and add a note stating that I will be taking the bus to Foz for a day trip?
