First off, sorry if this thread has been done a million times already.

So, I am doing a study abroad trip in Argentina, and will really only have one chance to get to the falls. I will be travelling with a friend and we are both on tight tight tight budgets. Can someone help me with the following info:

1. Cheapest way to get there. Im assuming its a micro (bus), but is it worth taking a train or plane to have more time there?

2. Where do I go? I can get to Posadas, but how to I get to the falls from there. Isnt there a town called El Dorado near by?

3. What is a good website to find hostels? Is it safe to pitch a tent in a random place to save some cash?

Thanks for much guys. Im loving Buenos Aires so far, and tonight Im leaving for Salta and Jujuy for a few weeks.

Yes, I do appreciate the help. It is a start.

How should I get from the falls from Wanda?

I found a few trip packages in the Clarin, but they are all about 300 US. I was hoping to use less than 200 US the entire trip. Do you think its possible.

I am in Salta now. Completely different world from Buenos Aires. I am excited to take the uplift tomorrow after class and explore the city. I wonder if there is a place to rent un moto.

Keep that advice coming people.

Hi Roberto,

Do you know a travel company in B.As. named Argentina Outdoors-Lan & Kramer? Would you use their services?

Many thanks

Kirill, if you are in Salta now contact the bus terminal. Easy. They will tell you right away which companies go to Puerto Iguazu. That is where you want to go for the falls. Aside from considering Wanda mines and CSC advice and lodge, you should also talk to the bus drivers who make this route. They will know for SURE the cheapest places to sleep in while in Iguazu, places a travel agent will never know, of course. Good luck with your visit.

Here is the page for the bus terminal in Salta

Huy, no, I don't know them but that doesn't mean anything. There are a lot of travel agencies in Buenos Aires that I do not know and are reputable. If you contact them and are happy with their responses and if their services suit your needs, then why not?

Carlos, I think I may have been misunderstood...

My response to Huy was in regards to a company named Outdoors-Lan & Kramer and I meant that there are a lot of service providers -and I now include yourself- that I do not know and are reputable. In other words, asking me about someone is a moot point because I do not have an answer.

I am also sorry my message was interpreted this way as we are not a big travel agency nor a large company. Furthermore, like yourself, we do personalized work and focus on very few clients so that we can serve them well. You don't have to be big business to provide great service. At least, that is how Travelsur and Erna feels.

Also, please note that here (Aside from considering Wanda mines and CSC advice and lodge...) I was reinforcing/validating your suggestions.

I agree that big is not necessarily better in all seriousness.

La razon por la que me gusta participar en este foro es por la calidad de personas que hacen de el, uno de los mejores. Mucha gente ha escuchado hablar de las mundialmente famosas Piedras Preciosas de Wanda,justamente en estos dias, se realizo uno de los mas grandes hallazgos, una amatista de mas de 200kg, en uno de los emplazamientos mineros. aqui tenemos 4 emplazamientos, 2 de calidad internacional y 2 que son mas ecologicos y mas vistosos, sin caer en el puro marketing.A pocos kilometros tenemos Secaderos de Yerba Mate, de mas de 50 aos de existencia, algo unico en la zona, fabrica de ladrillos artesanales, granjas educativas, y ahora sumandose los servicios de Buceo y paseos por la selva en las reservas locales.
Me encantaria entrar en contacto con gente a que les apasione este tipo de actividades, sepan que Misiones no es solo Cataratas, es calidez,emocion y mucha accion, todo el ao.
Espero sus consultas. Gracias Roberto por la aclaracion.

Atentamente

Just for those who can't read spanish, Carlos was suggesting to also consider Wanda as a destination in Misiones. Iguazu Falls have acquired worldwide reputation, however, Carlos informs us that Wanda has many other attractions that are worth the visit such as, very large gems reservoirs (recently found a 440 Lbs amatista), old and original yerba mate farms, hand-made brick factories, educational farms, diving and walking trips into the jungle...

Carlos!

My friend and I are thinking about doing two days at the falls and then in Wanda.

This is all helping a great deal.
