Iguassu Falls 2-night / 3-day Pre or Post Eclipse 2020 Stopover Package

***This is an estimate quotation based on 2019 rates***

 Day 1: Arrival in Iguassu Falls                                                                                                                  

Pre Tour: 8th Dec 2020
Post Tour: 16th Dec 2020

On arrival in Iguassu Falls, transfer to your hotel for your 2-night stay with breakfast included.

We recommend arriving by early afternoon to allow the afternoon visit of the Brazilian side of the Falls.  Alternatively, we can arrange a full day tour the following day to include both sides of the Falls.

Afternoon visit of the Brazilian side (about 2½ /3hrs)

From the Brazilian side you will be able to enjoy the panoramic view of the falls only seen from here.  It is a 1½ km walk which runs part of the way down the cliff near the rim of the falls, giving a stupendous view of the whole Argentine side of the Falls. There are walkways along the banks which take you almost under the powerful Floriano Falls.  From here an elevator carries visitors to the top of the Floriano Falls and to a path leading to Puerto Canoas. There are also smaller access paths for those who prefer to walk. This whole area is now a Unesco World Heritage Site and the incredible humidity generated by the falls creates the perfect environment in which the lush vegetation and fauna thrive in this subtropical rainforest.
