Lockers on Brazil side of Falls

We are arriving at Foz do Iguacu airport in December, by a late afternoon flight, which gets in at 2:40pm. We are booked to stay at Hotel Del Rey in downtown. Would like to cover the Brazil side of falls on the arrival day, and leave the next day for the Argentinian side.

There will not be enough time to go from the airport to our hotel, and to come back to see the falls. We will have to leave the luggage either at some left-luggage counter at the airport (do they have one ?), or in a locker at the park entrance (I believe they have some). What would you recommend ?

I have checked in the internet and apparently the airport have lockers (called Guarda-Volumes in Portuguese).

Please bear in mind that the Iguaçu National Park closes at 5pm, therefore it might be a bit tight for you to explore it in a couple of hours.

There are lockers on the Brazil side of the falls. You buy a token for I believe R$7 or $8 in the giftshop, and the lockers are located outside in the patio area.

We were able to put 2 carry on sized suitcases in one locker with some room to spare.

Hope this helps!

Thanks a lot for the information. It appears that the best would be to use the lockers at the Brazilian side of the Falls. We can take a taxi from the airport to the Brazilian side of falls, store our luggage there, visit the Falls, and then retrieve our luggage and go to our hotel.

Would a large holdall suitcase fit in the lockers on the Brazillian side of the falls?

Typical size of a 25Kg suitcase?

Many thanks,

Just wondering if you had done the trip yet and were able to fit large 25kg case in locker. Also were there plenty of lockers available? We would need three and would be arriving in the afternoon.

We used these lockers a couple of weeks ago. We arrived at opening time and there were plenty of lockers available. The biggest hassle was a long queue at the gift shop where you buy the tokens :-). The lockers are pretty big - I had a 100 litre rolling duffle bag and it fitted no problems. We also thought we'd need 3 lockers, but found we could fit 2 of the smaller bags one locker.

I have used these lockers and they are big but not suitcase shaped more a backpack shape ie pretty short but long. From memory maybe just under 2 feet high and a bit shorter across but very deep.
