MAGICAL ARGENTINA: Tango, Culture & IGUAZU FALLS Full Moon

Visit Buenos Aires, Jesuit Ruins & Iguazu Falls - 7 days

The trip features a dynamic immersion into Argentina’s culture where you will experience traditional tango music and dance at an iconic “milonga” (neighborhood tango house) with locals, learn about the rural culture of Argentina with an overnight stay at a historic “finca” (farm) in the countryside where you will tray the famous “mate” (herbal drink). Tour the historic Jesuit ruins in the province of Misiones to learn about the religious and cultural history in the region and experience how it feels to see the Iguazú Falls under the full moon.   

Day 1 – Welcome to Argentina: travel to Buenos Aires / Wine tasting

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.

 

We’re really happy to have you here so let’s toast! In the evening you will enjoy your first wine tasting experience in Argentina (palates ready…). In this wine tasting, in the neighborhood of Palermo, some of the country’s best boutique wines are chosen by a panel of local experts and combined with assorted tapas. It’s a great opportunity to learn about the local wine culture and regional Argentine varietals. They don’t skimp on any of the pours so don’t be shy…

Day 2 - Buenos Aires Walking Tour / Tango lesson in a “milonga”

How do locals interact with their city? The best way to figure it out is to walk side by side with them…get prepare to take your first Buenos Aires walking tour.

 

During the morning our guide will take you to see the most alluring places of the city. Depending on your hotel location and your personal interests, you can choose to explore either the Northern area of the city or the Southern area. If you decide to walk through the Northern part of the city, you will discover the aristocratic face of Buenos Aires with its magnificent architecture and green spaces. If you prefer to explore the Southern area, you will learn everything about the streets that surround our historical and political center: May Square (Plaza de Mayo) and the Pink House (the presidential house), San Telmo and La Boca, hometown of immigration and tango. No matter how much research you have done, you always learn something unexpected when taking a walking tour, not just from the official information, but often from the unscripted moments of chitchat with your tour guide…and why not with other locals. After all, we are all lovely people. At the end of this tour you will know how to interact with this spellbinding city like locals do.

 

Your cultural immersion will continue during the evening. Your guide will bring you to one of Buenos Aires’ historic and traditional tango halls (milongas) where you will learn the basic dance steps guided by an accomplished tango professor and then watch the locals strut their stuff. Milonga goes on all night long so we suggest to stay at least two hours after the class to get a real understanding of the cultural codes and the tango universe. Bear witness to the sensual rhythms of tango as you interact with locals and learn the moves. After all, it takes two to tango. Your cultural immersion will be almost complete.

Day 3 - From Buenos Aires to Posadas & Jesuit Ruins/ Oberá

After breakfast, you will have a transfer to the domestic airport to take your flight to the city of Posadas. Before getting to the ranch for the night, you will visit the historically important Jesuit ruins of San Ignacio and learn about the history of the Jesuits in Argentina and their impact on modern day life (Pope Francisco, who also comes from Argentina, is the first Jesuit Pope). 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. Still surrounded by dense vegetation, you can wander between redstone (called “red asperon”, the local stone) wall buildings in this mystic place.

 

After bearing witness to the passing of time you will travel to the estancia (ranch) in Oberá. This 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 (all meals are included). It’s your chance to taste local flavors that are generally not served in restaurants.In the land of yerba Mate (pronounced “Mah-Tay”), 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 its place of production and become an expert on how to prepare “un buen mate” (a good mate). Drinking mate is very important in Argentine culture and any Argentine will tell you that they have shared many  mates with family and friends throughout their lives. 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 through the trees, check out the starlit sky and wake up to the ethereal sound of birds.

Day 4- From Oberá travel to Iguazú Falls / Full moon excursion

After breakfast, it’s time to say goodbye to this jaw-dropping place. You will be driven back to Posadas: you will observe the local, rural lifestyle as we drive through the country. As you approach the town you will be welcomed by the lush green vegetation and rolling hills. Once you arrive at Posadas, you will be dropped at the bus station to take your regular bus to Puerto Iguazú. (This journey takes about 5 hours. If you would prefer to do this part of the trip by private transportation, please just let us know and we will quote it for you.)

 

Upon arrival you will be driven to your hotel. Today is the day that you have been waiting for…visiting Iguazú Falls. Arguably the most impressive of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Iguazú is the crown jewel of South America’s iconic destinations.

 

In the evening, prepare yourself for the highlight of the trip. You will take a guided moonlight tour of Iguazú Falls to experience the natural grandeur of this incredible National Park at night. Hear the nighttime sounds of the native fauna and see the brightness of water under the moonlight. This is a once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon that not many people get to see. All the while, keep an eye out for wildlife as the jungle awakens. You will first take the ecological train through the jungle and then walk through the moonlit paths to reach the incredible Devil´s Throat, the biggest waterfall of the park. At the end of this beautiful evening you will be driven back to your hotel.  

 

*Please note, this activity is weather dependent and your local guide will confirm the conditions upon arrival to Iguazú.

Day 5 - Iguazú Falls Tours: Argentine Side

After breakfast, you will return to Iguazú National Park and explore the walking trails, waterfalls and of course, the wildlife. Keep an eye out for toucans, monkeys or even the ubiquitous (and cute) coatis that scamper about the footpaths.

 

Your guide will take you to the park just before it opens to be the first ones in. Once the entrance is open, instead of taking the ecological train you will walk quickly to arrive even before the first group to Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat), which will permit up-close and personal experiences with this magnificent spectacle of nature. The falls are surrounded by a humid subtropical forest where the exuberant vegetation is home to many different animals and 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 stairways which allow you to have an experience from many different perspectives. 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.

The “Great Adventure” (gran aventura) is an optional tour you can add on to this day.

Day 6 – 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.
