Starting very early, from 7:30 a.m., a van will pick you up at your hotel in Puerto Iguazu or Foz de Iguazu to start on the way to the first stop that will be the Wanda Mines, just over 50km from Puerto Iguazu (Argentina).
There an English speaking guide will be waiting to tell you about the history of the mines, how they work, the importance of the place for the community, and ending in the precious stones store where you can buy some souvenirs of the place.
Then we begin the trip to the Ruins of San Ignacio, in a distance of approximately 200 kilometers. This trip can be a bit long, so we recommend taking the opportunity to see the view and landscape of the province of Misiones and rest a bit.

Fabulous Iguazu Falls Tour with ripioturusmo.com
"My wife and I have just returned from an excellent trip to Iguazu Falls with ripioturismo.com. From initial contact before Covid in 2020, through several iterations, the final trip (10/01/23 to 12/01/23) from Rio de Janeiro, organised by Ramiro from ripioturismo.com was fabulous. Last minute changes forced by Latam Air’s poor service, was rapidly accommodated, and the resulting tours were first class, and good value for money. Collection from Foz, transfers to and from the hotel, tours of both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides of the falls, together with a Tango Evening, border crossings, 4x4 Forest tour and spectacular boat trip under the falls, all achieved with professional, knowledgeable and helpful tour guides. I cannot praise the whole team enough. We would definitely recommend both ripioturismo.com and Iguazu Falls to anyone wanting a spectacular experience.

3 for 1 in a single day
"The tour was AMAZING! I loved our tour guide. He was professional, friendly, and also flexible & accommodating. We actually managed to fit in a lot into one day within a short amount of time, yet seemed to still move at a leisurely pace. We visited the Brazil side of the falls, walking tour of Ciudad del Este, and the Triple Frontier. Could not be happier with my experience. Thank you!

Wonderful trip to the Falls
"Wonderful trip to the Falls. Beautiful place and had very knowledgable tour guides. We visited Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro as well but the consensus was the Falls were the highlight of the trip!

Delivered on EVERYTHING! Bretter than hoped for
"I booked multiple tranfers (airport, hotels, tours, etc) almost TWO years ago and had to keep pushing things out due to Covid. First Maqui then Ramiro worked with me in early 2021, early 2022 and finally late 2022 with every logistic of our Iguazu Falls vacation. Every single promise was kept, every driver, shuttle, tour guide, etc showed up as promised, on time, and with a great attitude. They were a pleasure to work with and would use them again in a heartbreat! Made everything stress-free!
