What Our Travelers Says
February 24, 2019
Birding and visiting The Argentina side.
"We wanted to go birding in Iguazu Falls and arranged a half day trip ahead of arrival through Carlos. It was great! We saw Toucans and over 40 different species! After several hours, including a stop for tea or water and a bun, our birding guide, Martin, took us to the park entrance. He showed us the best way to view the park - lower circuit first then the train to the upper circuit. We really appreciated seeing the falls from below before seeing them from the top. Park entrance and transport back to our hotel had been arranged by Carlos so it was a worry free experience. Our Merit Hotel in Iguazu Falls had been booked by Carlos and was reasonably priced and included a decent continental breakfast. It was a long day but well worth it! Carlos had thought of everything! Another day we changed our arrangements to the Brazil side -we visited the Bird Park (Das Aves) and a heli ride after the falls and Carlos was again very helpful on short notice. He arranged our transport back to take us to the airport for a late afternoon flight. Perfect!!
