I am flying into AGT but going to hotel on Argentina side. How will I get there from AGT, Paraguay? Will I need to get a Brazilian visa if the only option is through Brazil.
It's possible to go direct from Paraguay to Argentina. There are ferries across the Parana River from Puerto Franco, Paraguay, to Puerto Iguazu, Argentina.
Otherwise, check with your Argentine hotel for info. The hotel should know whether taxis are able to get transit passengers across the bridge into Brazil for the purpose of transit to Argentina. When we visited, we found that there are special rules for the Iguasu Falls region that don't appear on embassy websites. For instance, despite what the websites say, we were not asked for Paraguayan visas to make a two-hour visit to Cidade de Leste, Paraguay, in the company of our registered guide.
Consult knowledgable local people in the hotel and transportation industry for up-to-the-minute information as to exactly what happens at the border.
Happy travels, and let me know if I can help further.
