I would like to visit the Itaipu Dam on Dec.8th, with the limitation that my friend's plane leaves the Foz do Iguacu International Airport at 3:10 pm. We will be staying at a downtown hotel that is close to McDonalds. Apparently I can pre-book the special circuit tour at the visitor's center for 8:30 am. We can take the public transit to get to the visitors center for about 7:45 am. I'm wondering if I can get a taxi from the Visitor's Center at about 11:30 am to take us back to our hotel (close to Mcdonalds) to get our bags and then to the airport. My friend is flying Azul. My Questions are as follows:
1. Would 8:00 am to 11:30 am be enough time to see the Special Circuit tour (2.5 hours) ?
2. Could we pre-book the taxi? What company would you recommend? Is there a taxi stand at the Itaipu Dam Visitor's Center?
3. How early should we get to the airport?
