What an incredible day! We flew from São Paulo to Foz do Iguaçu and took a bus to the national park. We read some blogs that mentioned that we should take a cab, but the bus felt extremely safe and was significantly cheaper! We put our packs in lockers, bought tickets to the falls, and jumped on a double-decker bus to take us to the trail. The views from the trail were breathtaking (and yes, we did wear our matching Two Tiny Travelers shirts.. 🙃).
After seeing the beautiful, panoramic views, we went to the restaurant for a buffet lunch. We had feshuada and other Brazilian dishes! On the trail and at the restaurant we saw these funny animals called coatie. They’re actually really cute, but supposedly they bite if you try to feed them.
After lunch, we went back to the visitor center to catch a bus to Argentina. We waited for a good hour for the “Rio Uruguay” bus to arrive. Again, the bus felt very safe, brought us to the proper checkpoints, waited for us to get our Passports stamped, and dropped us off close to our hostel. We checked into our hostel, exchanged some money nearby, got some groceries for our trek tomorrow, and had a low key dinner. Now it’s time to relax and get to bed early so we are well rested for the Argentinian side of the falls tomorrow!
