IGUAZU FALLS & JESUIT RUINS

Visit stunning Iguazu Falls & ancient Jesuit Ruins - 4 days

Travel to the three most recognized icons of the Misiones province: the Iguazú falls, Jesuit ruins and yerba Mate. Tour the Jesuit ruins from 17th century and then spend a night in a traditional, rural estancia where yerba mate is produced. Discover Argentina’s rural traditions and gaucho culture before a two-day tour to Iguazú falls. Get ready to be surrounded by tropical jungle and incredible biodiversity, and discover why Iguazú falls is one of the true natural wonders of the world.

Day 1 – From Posadas to Oberá: your adventure in Argentina starts now!

Upon arrival in Posadas you will travel approximately 1 and half hours to get to the estancia (ranch) La Chacra, in Oberá. The estancia, a typical gaucho environment, will be the perfect place to relax and experience the local culture of the interior of Argentina. In this family ranch, far from any big cities, you will enjoy homemade prepared meals. It’s your chance to taste local flavors that are generally not served in restaurants.

 

 

In the land of yerba Mate, you will visit the production area, where your guide will tell you about the plantations, the harvest and dryness of the leaves. Get ready to taste our national drink right from it’s producing place and become an expert on how to prepare “un buen mate” (a good mate).

 

 

On the way back you can enjoy the swimming pool, the tennis court or just relax and connect with nature. Hear the whistle of wind running among tree leaves, check out the starlit sky and wake up with the ethereal sound of birds.

Day 2 – From Oberá to Puerto Iguazú: San Ignacio Mini Jesuit ruins

After breakfast, you will take a 4-hour ride to Puerto Iguazú across the province of Misiones.

 

On the way, you will make a stop at San Ignacio Mini Jesuit ruins.  Built in 1632 for the colonization of the natives, these ruins (or “misiones” in Spanish), have been declared a World Heritage Site by the Unesco for its historical importance. The San Ignacio Mini Jesuit ruins are one of the best preserved missions in Argentina. Abandoned by the Jesuits in 1767 when they were forced to leave the continent, today we can still appreciate its original organization: the main square surrounded by the church, the cemetery and other important buildings. Lost in dense vegetation, the remains were found in 1897, but weren’t restored until 1940. Still surrounded by dense vegetation, you can wander between redstone (called “red asperon”, the local stone) wall buildings in this mystic place. Bear witness to the passing of time.

*The guided visits of the ruins are only offered in Spanish.

 

From here you will continue to Puerto 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 taken 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 or visit the Güirá Oga (the house of birds in native Guaraní language), the sanctuary for animals hurt by illegal hunting and trapping.

Day 3 – Iguazú falls tours: Argentine Side of the falls

Today our driver and bilingual guide will pick you up at your hotel and drive you to the National Park, on the Argentinian 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 4 – Iguazú falls tours: Brazilian side

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 will have the sensation of being right inside the falls, but only by visiting the Brazilian side you will 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.

 

If you don’t want to end this adventure, today you can choose to extend your travels adding on any optional activities, touring in Brazil, Patagonia or the Andes area or return back to Buenos Aires. The shared transfer to the Puerto Iguazu (IGR) airport is included.

The full day at the Argentine side of the Iguazu National Park was amazing! Our guide was very friendly, informative, and seemed to have the right balance of giving his group directions for times and places to meet back up and freedom to explore on our own.

Hi Agustina. Yes, we did receive the mini guide and thank you, too, for the recipe and wine list.

POSITIVES about our Say Hueque experience:
1) The full day at the Argentine side of the Iguazu National Park was amazing! Our guide was very friendly, informative, and seemed to have the right balance of giving his group directions for times and places to meet back up and freedom to explore on our own.

2) All the transfers were prompt and the drivers very friendly and polite.

3) The Amerian Hotel was very comfortable, yet a bit of a hike to eat in town.

NEEDS IMPROVEMENT
I would not recommend the trip to the San Ignacio Ruins - at least not for English speaking only travelers. We rode over 3 hours to get there expecting to have a professional guide. There was NO English speaking guide (even though our driver asked for us), and many of the self guided "speaker stations" were broken. So other than to see some of the countryside, we rode over over 6 hours, and saw very little. I don't feel that it was money well spent. Very much a disappointment.

You have been very prompt about responding to all of our emails. We appreciate that.

We are back and rested up after our trip. We had a wonderful time!

We are back and rested up after our trip. We had a wonderful time!

We very much liked the La Cantera hotel in Iguazu. We felt it gave us more of a flavor of being in the jungle which is what we really wanted. The rooms were great. The restaurant very good, and the overall ambience beautiful and relaxing.

The tours through the parks were especially memorable— we’ll have many wonderful memories of seeing the Iguazu Falls as well as hiking the trails. We were so impressed with you (Constanza), and your in depth knowledge of the parks’ flora and fauna. And your infectious enthusiasm. You did a wonderful job and we really enjoyed our time with you!

We can’t think of any improvements… everything worked so well… our bus drivers were great and getting through Brazilian customs went smoothly. The only thing we can think of was that our hotel reservation seemed to have gotten lost when we arrived at La Cantera hotel. But they gave us a very nice upgraded room for the first night. And our room for the remainder of the stay was also quite nice.


All our best!

We had a great time and met a lot of interesting people

Hi Mauro,

Back to reality in cold and freezing Holland.
But I still want to thank you for the advice and arranging our trip to Iguazu the 1st week of January.
(If you can still remember.)

We had a great time and met a lot of interesting people.
Iguazu was marvellous, but we enjoyed the wetlands and the Jesuit ruins very much too.
Back in Buenos Aires I' ve picked up the wine and enjoyed it.
Thanks again and we want to send you our regards.
