After your morning flight to Iguacu your chauffeur-guide meets you and drives you to your hotel. You have the afternoon to settle in and relax. Depending on what time your flight arrives, you could spend the afternoon visiting the Brazilian side of the falls. There are several walking trails, which take you to different panoramic viewpoints over the falls.
Day 7 Iguaçu Falls
Your guide picks you up at your hotel for a private half day guided tour of the Argentinian side of the falls. You'll walk over the jungle boardwalks to different viewpoints, allowing you to get up close to the water, and will also visit the 'Devil's Throat' - the most powerful section of the falls. Your afternoon is free - we suggest visiting the nearby bird park or spend more time exploring the Brazilian side of the falls.
