Three travelers arrive into the Brasil side airport on a Sunday in the afternoon and will go straight to our hostel. We plan to tour the Brazilian side on Monday and then the Argentine side on Tuesday. We depart Wednesday. I would like to get information on costs and if it is worth it to pre-book through tours or just wing it ourselves. Also, does anyone recommend hopping over to the Paraguay side? I am a planner and my husband is a wing-it traveler... so I am trying to find the happy medium by knowing options.
1) Taxi cost from Brasil airport to downtown (Che Lagarto Hostel...near the zoo)? Or bus?
2) Getting to the Brazilian Falls ... easy? Taxi/bus? Get in line and pay (i heard you can use a credit card) Book boat rides from inside the park? Any chance of things selling out if you don't pre-book?
3) How do you get to the Argentine side...taxi ($?), bus ($ and frequency?) or tour (any added value?) and then from the Argentine side to the Falls?
4) book boat tours once inside the park?
5) go to Paraguay?
Thanks in advance! Cheers.
