BUENOS AIRES, IGUAZU FALLS & RIO – 9 Days

Visit Iguazu Falls, Christ the Reedemer in Rio & Buenos Aires

 

Discover Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, where culture, art and gastronomy are ever-present. Fly to Iguazu Falls to explore the rainforest and meet one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world. End your travel adventure in Rio de Janeiro, the most popular city in the heavenly country of Brazil; feel the welcoming spirit of the city where people dance samba all year-round, and visit the colossal Christ the Redeemer.

Day 1 – Travel to Argentina: Discover Buenos Aires

 

Upon arrival, you’ll be transferred to the city and you’ll have the rest of the day to enjoy Buenos Aires at your own pace. Buenos Aires is a marvelous, energetic, cosmopolitan city, full of color and different styles of architecture. 

 

The capital of Argentina, and described as the Paris of South America, Buenos Aires proudly embraces its title, and also shows off plenty of its own culture! Argentinians 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 just our spirit! 

 

So, for this first day, feel free to wander the cobblestone streets lined with outdoor cafes, enjoy the mouthwatering aroma of world-famous Argentine beef sizzling on an open parrilla (barbeque), and browse the local antique and artisan markets that offer plenty of bargain shopping.

Day 2 – Buenos Aires City Tour & Tango Show

 

In the morning we’ll pick you up to enjoy our 5-hour Buenos Aires city tour—you will be swept away by the highlights of our beloved Buenos Aires. Over the course of a half-day you will have the chance to visit the historical and political center of the city; Plaza de Mayo and the Pink House (the presidential house).

 

Next, we’ll move on to San Telmo, with its cobblestone streets and the oldest residential neighborhood, and then to La Boca where Buenos Aires turns colorful and tango is ever-present. Come walk Caminito Street and dance with the locals. The next stop is the chic and aristocratic Recoleta, where the big palaces remind us why Buenos Aires is called the “Paris of the South”.

 

In the evening we’ll pick you up from your hotel to take you to a mystical place where you’ll discover one of our most ancient traditions. Tango is more than our national dance tango is our immigrant origins, the talent of our local artists, the sensuality of Argentine women and our way to deal with a broken heart; dancing our way through tragic, and yet eternal, love stories.

 

Tonight you will enjoy a 3-hour professional display of tango and music with a group of local 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 back in time for a night.

 

This spectacular demonstration of the finest local dancing will be accompanied by delicious Argentine and international cuisine. Dinner is all-inclusive, 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, fully in love with the bohemian spirit of our incredible city.

Day 3 – From Buenos Aires, fly to Iguazu Falls

 

This is the end of your Buenos Aires trip, but the beginning of your jungle exploration of Puerto Iguazú, home to the world-famous Iguazú Falls. At the appropriate time, we’ll pick you up from your hotel and drive you to the airport to take your flight. Upon arrival to Puerto Iguazú, you will have a transfer to your hotel.

 

You will have the afternoon to relax and enjoy the tropical climate and jungle setting. 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. 

 

Say Hueque Tips

 

For the adventure-seekers, we recommend taking a bike tour through the rainforest with a specialized guide.

Day 4 – Iguazu Falls Tours: Argentine Side

 

Today our driver and bilingual guide will pick you up from your hotel and drive you to Iguazú National Park, to enjoy a private tour to the Argentine side of Iguazú Falls.

 

The falls are surrounded by a humid subtropical forest where the exuberant vegetation is home to many different species of wildlife. Our guide will help you spot some of them: toucans, parrots and coatis, just to name a few.

 

Lower and upper walkways weave in and around the 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, walkways and stairways which allow you to have an experience from many different perspectives. 

 

You will also have the chance to visit the “Devil’s Throat”; the largest of the falls and for many, the most spellbinding. To get to the Devil’s Throat, you’ll take the ecological train and then walk out along boardwalks. 

 

After walking around and taking pictures of waterfalls, animals and plants, you will have some free time to eat lunch in this amazing environment. This exciting, 7-hour excursion is highly recommended in order to experience the true power of Iguazú Falls. 

 

Say Hueque Tips 

 

Would you love to have a “Great Adventure” in Iguazu? The Great Adventure (“Gran Aventura”) is an optional tour you can add on to this day. You will take an open-air jeep through the rainforest, and then a zodiac open-air boat 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!).

 

Enjoy the wildlife you can spot in Iguazu Tours!

Day 5 – Iguazu Falls Tours: Brazilian Side

 

After breakfast, enjoy a 4-hour excursion to the Brazilian side of Iguazú Falls. You’ll be crossing borders today so please, don’t forget your passport! 

 

While Argentina has 80% of the falls on its side, Brazil has the best panoramic view. On the Argentine side you will have the sensation of being right inside the falls, but only by visiting the Brazilian side will you fully appreciate the immensity of Iguazú Falls.

 

This is a private tour, so 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 experience the power of the falls! Although you’ll be looking into Argentina, your feet will be on the ground in Brazil! Where does Argentina start and Brazil end? Well, it’s time to walk the line.

 

Back from the footbridge, you’ll have some free time to use the restrooms, visit the gift shop and take a special elevator to an especially high viewpoint. At the end of the tour, we’ll drive you back to your hotel.

Day 6 – Leaving Iguazu Falls, to travel to Rio de Janeiro

 

We’ll pick you up from your hotel and drive you to Foz de Iguaçu airport to take your flight to Rio de Janeiro. Upon arrival to Rio’s airport, we’ll be waiting to provide transportation to your hotel. Enjoy your leisure time today exploring this vibrant city — you have just arrived in one of the powerhouses of South America!

 

Rio de Janeiro (‘River of January’ in Portuguese), which was classified as a Cultural Landscape by UNESCO, is a metropolitan gem tucked between the mountains and the sea. Rio is best-known for its bossanova (sultry Brazilian music genre), mouth-watering feijoada (a traditional bean and pork stew), refreshing caipirinhas (classic Brazilian cocktail), and the beaming smiles of its people.

 

An exotic mix of beach and mountains, with its colorful colonial neighborhoods and modernist big-city style, Rio is a must-see destination to add to your bucket list. This is the cariocas’ land, as locals call themselves, where the pass of time is synonymous with the rhythm of samba

 

Many people think of Brazil as merely an amazing paradise beach… and they are not entirely wrong. But, this mysterious and passionate corner of the globe is much more than just a pristine sandy utopia…

  

In the fifth-largest country of the world, centuries of immigration from all kinds of ethnic backgrounds have created a rich culture whose main language is Portuguese (the local version is called brasilero) — it is the only country on the continent where people don’t speak Spanish!

 

Say Hueque Tips

 

The perfect place to explore is the bohemian Lapa neighborhood which sits at the edge of the historical downtown hub. Enjoy the day mingling with locals in this incredible part of the city — stop by the Aqueduto da Carioca to take a picture with its magnificent white arches, and visit the Escalera de Selaron (Selaron’s stairway), a 215-step stairway decorated with tiles from all around the world. Find the beautiful images and messages hidden throughout its multicolored steps! Discover even more ideas on how to spend your time in the city in our Rio de Janeiro Travel Guide.

Day 7 – Rio de Janeiro Tours: Corcovado & Tijuca Forest by Jeep

 

Today you will travel to the spellbinding Corcovado Hill, home to the famous Christ the Redeemer statue, which has achieved celebrity status around the world through each postcard sent by visitors from Rio.

 

After breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel in a jeep and take you on a 4-hour tour of Corcovado Hill, the rocky, 2329-foot guardian of Guanabara Bay. We’ll pass by Cosme Velho neighborhood, one of the most elegant places in Rio, and take the red cog train up to Corcovado Hill, crossing the dense vegetation of Tijuca forest. From here you’ll start having your first taste of incredible views of the bay and the city! At the end of the railway, the granite giant awaits. Christ the Redeemer stands on the top of Corcovado Hill with arms wide open, praying for the wellbeing of Rio de Janeiro.

 

From this privileged spot you will also see Sugarloaf Mountain (another classic destination for travelers), the beautiful Southern beaches, and the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, whose waters support a gigantic floating Christmas tree during the holiday season.

 

At the end of this day trip, you’ll return in the cog train through the forest and back down the mountain. On our way back to your hotel, we’ll stop to discover the traditional Santa Teresa district, with its artisanal galleries and historic bondinho (an old-school trolley car).

 

Afterwards, we’ll leave you at your hotel to enjoy the rest of your leisurely evening. It’s the perfect opportunity to go mingle with some carioca beachgoers on the famous Copacabana Beach, or relax in the ethereal Playa Vermelha.

Today you will discover the other side of Rio de Janeiro̶ — nicknamed Cidade Maravilhosa or “Marvelous City”.

After traveling through verdant Flamengo Park (Aterro do Flamengo), you will be taken to the neighborhood of Urca, which is home to Sugarloaf Mountain (Pão de Açúcar). You are in for a special treat, as the only way to the top is by taking a gondola.

 

The first cable car transports passengers up Urca Hill, which is more than 700 feet high and overlooks Guanabara Bay and its islands, the Rio-Niterói bridge and Corcovado Hill. From this point, a second cable car will be taken up to the very top, reaching a height of approximately 1,300 feet. At the end, we’ll take you back to your hotel.

All the guides were good but Agostina, you are a star

Agostina
Hope all is well.
Will try and remember to go on Trip Advisor. Think of you often you special one.
We choose you because Responsible Travel in the U.K. found you for me. The booking process was very good. I don´t think we have a favourite excursion but the Iguazú Falls will I think be the most memorable. All the guides were good but Agostina, you are a star. You will be a greater star. Hope there’s a next time
All the very best

Hello Agustin.

I don't t think that I contacted you to thank you for the wonderful trip you planned for us (if I have already thanked you, here is a 2nd note). Everything went smoothly and all arrangements were met perfectly and on time. Lesa and I stopped into your office in Rio, to meet personally, but you were on holiday that week.

Thanks again for helping us make all of those arrangements for our trip. If we every want to plan another trip to South America, we will certainly contact you.

Fantastic job showing us around BA and introducing us to empanadas

I researched Say Hueque on Trip Advisor and read the reviews on your website and decided to make contact. The booking process was excellent. Our travel advisor was Agustin and he gave us some great advice about where to go and what to do. He also helped us with advice on flight times and airlines to use.

Our favorite hotel was Arena Ipanema in Rio. Great location, excellent room and service. Least favorite was La Cantera in Iguasu Falls. Huge room but no tea/coffee facilities in the room. Staff were great but no room service and we had some noise from surrounding rooms.

I think the 2 day at Iguasu Falls was our favorite tour. Just seeing the magnitude of the falls and being able to get so close to them was amazing. Favorite memory (and photo) was at Ipanema Beach and the Christ Redeemer statue.
