Travel from IGR airport to Belmond hotel

Is a taxi the best and least expensive way? Also read about remis private cars that you get at the airport.

Also has anyone taken a taxi from the Brazilian side of the falls to the Argentina side and back again?

Taxis are relatively inexpensive.

Taxis to both sides of the falls.

Cost is around $25 US for a taxi from IGR to the Belmond. Private hires are more expensive. You can ask the driver in advance as to costs. In U$ they lower the price many times.

If you are asking which taxi company, they are lined up at the airport. If talking private hire I am not sure of the company names in IGR.

Yes it is safe for a direct drive. Be sure to stop at the BR border to have your document(s) stamped. The drive up windows are not manned and you need to go inside the office. There are random check points around the area and with an AR taxi, % of chance to be stopped is high. It is a $R400 real fine for illegal entry and a trip to the Policia Federal to pay it. Then pay a taxi to get to hotel.

The taxi cost you saw must be BR Reals ir is about $70 U$ from airport to downtown Foz and the Belmond is near the BR airport so less km.

Ask the driver for an upfront price. Will be in Pesos but some take reals or U$.
