Is one day enough to enjoy so much beauty? The rational answer is definitely not. However, we will do our best to show you all the Falls and their unbelievable surroundings.
An early start after breakfast at your hotel. The best option is a walk around Puerto Iguazú city
. Crafts, souvenirs, toucan, guacamayo and Fall T-shirts await. Travel agencies offer a wide range of alternatives of organized outings. 10: 00 hs. La Casa de las Botellas (House of Bottles)
is an ideal way of becoming acquainted with a different view of the world and appreciating the way its founder creates awareness of possible uses of the plastic bottles we consume daily. 11:00 hs.
Close by, Güirá Oga theme park
, also known as ’the bird house’ is an excellent family outing. A guided tour will show you how the jungle is formed and all about the animals and plants which populate it.
Time to think about lunch. In Puerto Iguazú there are many places which pride themselves
on their lunch and dinner menus. You will delight your palate with grilled meat, pasta or the best river fish prepared according to ancestral recipes of this spectacular fall area. 14:00 hs.
No time for a nap. Off we go to the village of San Ignacio
to see its famous Jesuit ruins
. They captivate us the moment we set eyes on them and the tour proposed by the guides enhances their appeal. An amazing history lesson which helps us understand the conquest from all cardinal directions. 15:00 hs.
A few minutes from the Jesuit ruins, the Home of Horacio Quiroga
is the perfect place to visit and understand the life of this great writer. His famous Cuentos de la Selva
(Tales of the Jungle) come to life by walking through his house and unravelling the secrets of the jungle he lived in.
We plan to Access Iguazú National Park
as late as possible to walk along the different trails by the Falls
Our aim is to reach Garganta del Diablo
(Devil’s Throat) in time to watch the sunset at this magnificent waterfall. It is also the ideal moment to see the toucans flocking to their nests to spend the night. 19:00 hs.
As daylight dims, the sounds in the park change while nocturnal animals begin their activities. When the moon is full, the outing known as Full Moon Night
is pure magic. After an unforgettable tour of the walks in the moonlight topped by dinner served in the Park facilities. 21:00 hs.
Time to head back to Puerto Iguazú city and enjoy its gastronomic restaurants. River fish lovers are in for a treat. Local cuisine offers perfect combinations of meat and fish as well as fruit and vegetables grown in the area. There is a wide choice of restaurants offering
auteur, old style and contemporary cuisine. 24:00 hs.
The time has come to return to our hotel or cabin for a well deserved rest. We have come to know one of the most popular destinations in Argentina in under 24 hours. There is no doubt we will come back … ’We did it all. In one day we got to know the Falls in an unforgettable way. We will surely be back.’
