BUENOS AIRES & IGUAZU FALLS

Visit the city of Tango & one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature - 6 days

Have you ever thought about visiting the most romantic city of South America and the jungle during the same trip? In this 6 day journey you will see people dancing true tango (like only Argentines do), discover the real “city that never sleeps” by walking the street of the eclectic and vibrant city of Buenos Aires and stunning yourself by standing just next to one of the 7 wonders of the world: Iguazú falls. Shared by Argentina and Brazil, this UNESCO World Heritage site is a “must-see” during your stay in Argentina.

Day 1 - Travel to Buenos Aires: first day in the city

Upon arrival, you’ll be transferred to the city and you’ll have the rest of the day to enjoy the city at your own pace.

 

Buenos Aires is a marvelous, furious, cosmopolitan city, full of plenty of colours and different kind of architecture. Capital of Argentina and described as the Paris of South America, Buenos Aires proudly embraces this title, as well as showing off plenty of its own culture! Argentines are usually eager to host visitors: if you walk the streets with a map, someone will surely stop and ask if you need directions. That’s our spirit! So, for this first day, be free to wander the cobblestone streets lined with outdoor cafes, enjoy the the mouthwatering aroma  of prized Argentine beef sizzling on an open “parrilla” (barbeque), and browse the local antique and artisan markets that offer plenty of bargain shopping. And to travel deeper and have a firm grip of the Argentine spirit, find the perfect leather jacket or handbag (Buenos Aires is home to some excellent local designers),  enjoy a typical dinner-tango show in the worldwide known home of the tango, and explore the colorful San Telmo and Recoleta neighborhoods.

Day 2 – Discover Buenos Aires: city tour & tango show

In the morning you’ll enjoy our traditional Buenos Aires city tour. Over the course of a half day you’ll be swept away by the highlights of our beloved Buenos Aires. You’ll visit the historical and political center of the city around May square (Plaza de Mayo) and the Pink House (the presidential house). San Telmo with its cobblestone streets and  the oldest residential neighborhood and La Boca where Buenos Aires turns colorful and tango is ever present: come to walk Caminito street and dance with the locals. The next stop: Puerto Madero where the city gets modernized, Retiro where the cutting-edge Kavanagh building rises like the guardian of the neighbourhood. Continue to Palermo, the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, which is divided in 3 main sections (Palermo Viejo, Palermo Soho and Palermo Hollywood). This tour will end at the chic and aristocratic Recoleta, where the big palaces remind us that Buenos Aires was once the “Paris of the South”. Discover the final resting place of Eva Perón, “Evita” and wander through Recoleta Cemetery where she is to be found.

 

In the evening you will be picked up from your hotel to be driven to a mystical place next to the Abasto, the ancient produce market of Buenos Aires. At the corner of the Carlos Gardel alley, stands a two story building constructed exactly where the famous tango singer Carlos Gardel used to sing and the gathering place for many of the most typical characters of the neighbourhood. Tonight you will enjoy a professional display of tango and music with more than 25 artists onstage immersed in an elegant and alluring place. The manners, ambience, clothes and dance steps which tango lovers used to practice  100 years ago will come to life again and you will travel in time for a night. This demonstration of the finest local dancing will be accompanied by delicious Argentine and international cuisine. Dinner is a la carte, beverages included so you can lose yourself in the ethereal taste of Malbec wine. At the end of the evening, around midnight, you will be driven back to your hotel.

Day 3 – From Buenos Aires, travel to Iguazú Falls

It’s time to leave the city and fly to ¡the jungle! At the appropriate time you will be transferred to the domestic airport to take your flight and travel to Iguazú Falls.

 

Welcome to Iguazú!

 

The small border town of Puerto Iguazú is the gateway to visit the impressive Iguazú Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders and a UNESCO World Heritage site, making it a must-see destination for any traveler visiting Argentina.

 

Upon arrival, you will be met at the airport and provided a transfer to your hotel. Answer the call of vacations and take your time to relax at your hotel. If you’re eager to explore, you can visit the “Hito tres fronteras”, a viewpoint west of the town center that stands high above the turbulent reddish-brown junction of the Iguazú and Paraná rivers, which also form the Triple Frontera, or Triple Border between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. Or visit the Güirá Oga (the house of birds in native Guaraní language), the sanctuary for animals hurt by illegal hunting and trapping.

 

Say Hueque tips

 

For the most adventurous, we recommend to take a bike tour through the rainforest with an specialised guide. You will discover the flora and fauna, the sounds of the jungle, the trail of little native mammals and the traditions of the Guaranies. Check out our recommendations on where to eat dinner and take a look at our Iguazú Falls – Travel guide for more practical tips.

Day 4 – Iguazú Falls Tours: Argentine side

Today our bilingual guide will pick you up at your hotel and you’ll visit the National Park, on the Argentine side. The falls are surrounded by a humid subtropical forest where the exuberant vegetation is home to many different animals and birds. Our guide will help you spot some of them: ant birds, toucans, manakins, parrots, coatis, just to name a few of the most common birds. Lower and upper walkways weave in and around falls permitting up close and personal experiences with this magnificent spectacle of nature. The Argentine side of the falls is filled with a myriad of paths and walkways and stairways which allow you to have an experience from many different perspectives. You will have the chance to meet “The Devil’s throat”: the largest of the falls and for many the most spellbinding. To get to the Devil’s Throat you take the ecological train and then walk out along boardwalks. After walking and taking pictures of animals and plants, you will have some free time to eat lunch in this amazing environment. This exciting, 6-7 hour-long excursion is highly recommended in order to experience the true power of Iguazú Falls.

Would you love to have a “Great Adventure”? The Great Adventure (“gran aventura”) is an optional tour you can add on this day. You will take an open air jeep through the rainforest and then a zodiac open air boat ride up the river to the base of the falls (there is a 100% chance that you will get soaking wet on this boat trip, so be sure to take some extra clothes!).

Day 5 – Iguazú Falls Tours: Brazilian side/ Return to Buenos Aires

After breakfast, enjoy a 3-4  hour excursion to the Brazilian side of the Iguazú Falls. Don´t forget your passport! While Argentina has 80% of the falls on its side, Brazil has the best panoramic view. On the Argentinian side you had the sensation of being right inside the falls, but only by visiting the Brazilian side you’ll fully appreciate the immensity of Iguazú Falls. Take your time to enjoy it and feel it, to stroll the different walkways and feel the spray of water in your face. Take the boardwalk over the Salto Santa María, it feels like walking on the water. Get closer to the Devil’s Throat and feel the power of water! We are sure this is a day you will never forget. At the appropriate time in the afternoon you will have a transfer to the airport for your flight to Buenos Aires. Upon arrival you’ll be transferred to your hotel.

Day 6 – Last day in the city! Enjoy Buenos Aires day trips

Welcome back to the city of “porteños” (inhabitants of the port city of Buenos Aires). How you would like to spend your last day of vacation? Here are some ideas: you can explore the cobblestone, tree-lined streets of Palermo Soho in search of one-of-a-kind Porteño fashion store or discover the graffiti circuit. Or you may stop by one of our historic cafés (named “cafés notables”) located all over the city and have a “cortado”, the most popular Argentine coffee choice. If you’re leaving on a Saturday or Sunday, you may have the chance to visit one of the city markets, only open on  weekends. At the appropriate time you will be transferred to the international airport for your flight back home.

 

¡Buen viaje!

We recommend Say Hueque to any one we know that may be interested in going to South America.

Hi Patty,

sorry for the late reply, but since coming home, we have been busy. We had a fabulous trip to South America thanks to Say Hueque.

We found Say Hueque on the internet researching South America/Argentina , reviews were very positive.
The good reviews and the various options, experience since 1999 as well as the good communication made us to choose to work with you.

Our hightlights have been the Iquazu Falls and the P. Moreno Glacier.
We have to favorite hotels - Toss up between the Jasy in Iquazu and the Pudu Lodge in El Chaltan. We liked the size of the rooms, the tranquility and the locations (quiet in the country) were very nice plus the balcony of the Jasy hotel.
Our favorite exucrions have been to Iquazu Falls and the Mendoza wineries. The falls were spectacular, and the wineries were very pleasant out in the country. Winery experience different from wineries in the United States. Also the P. Moreno Glacier.

Besides Patty, we enjoyed our guide in Bariloche (Frederico) and our Mendoza wine guide.. all guides were very knowledgeable. We particularly liked Frederico's enthusiasm for nature and his knowledge of Argentina's history, politics, geography, etc.

A page or two for us "English" speaking tourists, of useful phrases in the countries we visited would be useful. IE Bon Dia (good day) in Brazil, thank you, etc. And a page on paragraphs of common customs. what to expect, etc. in each country (what is polite, nor not polite, etc).

Jay and I give Say Hueque excellent grades for putting together a perfectly paced and interesting itinerary. We felt the amount of time at each place was appropriate. We felt safe the entire time, and understood that it could be a challenge. We thought the locations of the hotels were excellent!!! Close to everything we needed, clean and comfortable. We particularly liked meeting Patty in person and enjoyed sharing WHAT's APP pictures. The gift (bottle of wine) was delicious and thoughtful.

We will post our comments on trip advisor as well, and recommend Say Hueque to any one we know that may be interested in going to South America.

Regards
Jay and Louise Hecht

Really enjoyed our fist trip to Argentina - we´ll be back!

Dear Patty,

We learned about Say Hueque through the Internet as we looked for Argentina travel agents and looked at the comments. Say Hueque seemed like a good fit for 2 people traveling on their own and not speaking any Spanish.

Appreciated the pickup at the airports - that can always be a hassle. But really enjoyed the quality of the guides that we had. ALL were really enjoyable and knowledgeable on the areas we explored.

Our favorite hotel is Casa Sur Bellini Hotel in Buenos Aires - like the location, quality of room and breakfast was really delightful - the front desk and staff were very helpful as well.

All excursions were really good! But would have to say the day at Iguazu Falls was just phenomenal - just could never imagine the amount/strength of THAT MUCH WATER!!! Patty was pretty awesome - felt we could be in contact with her on any of our needs/concerns - but then each of the guides really did a nice job - would use any of them again.

The hotel in Mendoza was really the only disappointment - just wasn’t the quality that the others were - both the location and the facility.
BUT WE’D DO IT AGAIN IN A MINUTE!!! REALLY ENJOYED OUR FIRST TRIP TO ARGENTINA - WE’LL BE BACK!!

(also, Patty - our grandson really appreciated the Argentina coins!! Added to his collection of foreign coins!!)

Thank you ALL again for such a memorable trip!!

Buenos dias -

Mike and Lori
