1) I have a Canadian passport with Brazilian visa. If I go to Argentinian side, do I need anything? I read the checks are not very strict and Brazilian/Argentinian officials will not stamp the passports in order to have any single entry visas still valid. One person in our group has a Russian and a Canadian passport. So entering Brazil is on Russian passport (no visa requirements). Not sure about what to do with Argentinian visit. Use Canadian passport to enter and Russian pasport to leave back to Brazil?
2) Canadian citizens need to pay an entrance fee when flying in to Argentina, is this the case when crossing on foot/by bus?
3) We have a full day (7am-7am next morning) on the Brazilian side, would this be enough to see both sides of the falls, or should I extend the trip by a day in that area (doing so would take away from time in other places, so if it's doable in a day, I'd rather not prolong the stay at Iguasu)
4) I'm in the process of booking the hotel - where should I aim for? Closer to the airport and hence the Brazilian falls, or closer to the town of Iguasu and hence easier access to Argentina?
5) If we do decide to see both sides, how is it best done? Argentina first, Brazil second? What are the steps? (i.e. take bus from Iguasu town to Argentina, take bus back to Brazil, take a 3rd bus from Iguasu town to Brazilian falls?) Perhaps we should rent a car instead? Or take a taxi (cross border taxis exist?)
any other tips or precautions would be appreciated.I read several travel guides and they all say different things and none give exact routes/steps on how to see both sides
brazilian site for the park doesn't have a version in english, so it's very difficult to navigate. not sure if this information is covered on there. http://www.cataratasdoiguacu.com.br/
