I’ll be staying in São Paulo for 2 weeks this month. I’ll be staying with a local family.
I’m thinking of flying to see Iguassu Falls (both sides) but I will be by myself. (I’m a 40-something year old female.) Should I be concerned about traveling alone?
Some questions I have:
1) I haven’t booked a flight yet but I’ll be coming from CGH. (My return flight home to the US is out of GRU.) So I’m planning on purchasing one-way tickets. To get to the falls: CGH-IGU. Then from IGU-GRU to catch my evening flight home. Make sense?
2) My tentative plan is to fly to the falls on Sunday morning & spend that evening looking at the falls from the BR side.
3) Is it ok to cross the border (via taxi) in the evening so that I can stay on the AR side and explore the falls first thing in the morning? Or should I stay on the BR side & cross the border in the morning to visit the falls on the AR side?
4) Then cross the border in the afternoon to catch an afternoon flight out of BR so I can then arrive in GRU to catch my evening flight home?
Does this plan sound doable? I can also fly in to the falls on Saturday, if necessary. Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I’d love to see the falls but I keep wondering if it’s actually worth the extra $500+ USD it’s going to cost. Thanks for any help you can give!
