  • Bus from Sao Paulo to Foz do Iguacu, Brazil

    by Hanames Online Now Apr 20, 2014 at 4:53 AM

    Hello, is there a way to book a bus ticket instead of flying from Sao Paulo to Foz do Iguacu, Brazil side. I would be coming from the Paulista area and staying in Parana of Foz do Iguacu. If i can buy a ticket online how far in advance can I purchase it? What is the approximate cost? If not, how far in advance should I buy it in person and where is the terminal located? I don't mind about travel time since I am not in a hurry.

    Hi all,

    I am planning to head to see the falls either tomorrow or Sunday from Asuncion. Can anyone advise with the following please?

    1) Info on getting to Foz from Asuncion by bus? According to my guidebook it takes 5 hours. Any recommended tips on making that journey? I prefer to avoid overnight bus travel if possible.

    2) Any recommendations on where to stay when I get there? Somewhere mid ranged is fine, ideally no more than 80 usd.

    3) Whats the best means of getting from there to either of Buenos Aires or Montevideo? I am ware there´s a daily flight from Asuncion to Buenos Aires but if there is a direct flight to BA or Montevideo that doesnt cost the earth then I'd be delighted to consider it.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    by santanesia Online Now Jun 4, 2010 at 7:12 AM

    Thank you all your answer to the other questions that I have been reading for a couple days. Great tips.
    I would like to stay at the mentioned hotel but the price is almost prohibitive for me .We are going to stay 3 nigths arriving at 1:30am in the first one.
    I know that is just Sheraton and Cataratas but does anyone know another choice that would be in Av Cataratas where we would be able to see some trees in the morning ? I read about San Martin and Carima( would like to stay there but got very bad reviews).
    Because we just have 2 full days , I thougth if we stay near the 'fork'we could go easyly to both side of the falls in one day and see any decorations for the Soccer Word Cup in Argentina and Paraguai strees if possible.
    I'm from Brazil but have been living in US for 20yrs and want to take but hubby there who was born in a city next to Niagara Falls.
    We are thinking about renting a car just to be more functional and flexible, but still wondering. I understand that the public trasportationis very reliable but would like a little more freedom.
    Can we go from Port iguassu to Paraguay by car without going back to Foz?
    Thank you

  • Should I Rent A Car?

    by schnarff Online Now May 7, 2010 at 9:25 AM

    My wife and I are going to be staying at the Sheraton Iguazu on the Argentine side of the falls next week (within the actual park, not downtown). We're flying into the Foz do Iguacu airport, and had initially just planned to take a taxi ride to and from the hotel. However, I've heard it suggested that people staying at the Sheraton often rent a car, because of its relatively remote location, and the fact that the public transit from downtown shuts down around 8:00 p.m.

    Is it worthwhile to rent a car down there, or would it be a waste of money? It'd be about188 for the time we're there, which isn't bad once you account for the money we'd save in taxis to and from the airport; my main concern is whether we'd be likely to actually use the car beyond that time.
