hi,

we have about 2-3 days (most likely 2) that we can explore around the argentina side away from the iguazu falls. we are thinking of going to misiones but can't go as far as the san ignacio mini since we are short on time.

anyone knows is there any nice misiones town we can stay closer to iquazu falls?

thanks!

I am there at the moment..... the town is called Peurto Iguaçu - its the nearest town to the falls on the Argentinian side. its a nice little town with shops and restaurants and lots of accomodation. In the bus station there is a little tourist shop and you can buy tickets from there to do the activities in the falls.... we went today and it cost $80 pesos each to do a truck ride through the trees and forest, then a boat trip into the waterfalls, then a bit of a wide water rapids and then an ecological boat tour thing which goes down a river and you can spot some animals. it was good but you can do it cheaper if you do less things and to be honest the truck thing was a bit boring and over really quickly - the rapids thing is alright but only takes about 5 minutes but the other things are great... you could do the other things for about $30 pesos.... entry to the national park is also $30 pesos each. its great there though and the most amazing natural sight i have ever seen... have fun!!
