I am planning a two night visit to the Falls in mid-December. I need help with the following: where to stay? how to maximize what I see? with a US passport do I need a VISA to briefly visit the Brazilian side? restaurant recommendations.

All help greatly appreciated.

In Feb 2006 I went to Iguazu for two night. My friends and I stayed at the Iguazu Sheraton. Staying there was not a pleasant experience. The service was extremely slow, my friends room smelt very bad and it was far more expensive than staying in the town of Puerto Iguazu. The front desk staff were quite pleasant and staying right in the park was convenient, but the hotel not a pleasant experience. We ate in a restaurant in the town, got a taxi from the hotel who picked us up when we were ready to go home. The meal in the town was excellent. I can't lay my hands on my diary and don't remember the name of the restaurant, but it was recommended by the taxi drive. He, and our Iguazu guide both told us that the hotels in the town were cheaper and the service was better. You do need a visa to visit the Brazilian side( if your from North America, it was about $120 Canadian when we were there. The most dramatic falls are in Argentina, likely the best view from Brazil. There are several restaurants in the town, the taxi driver recommended two, the one we chose had live music. One evening we ate at the hotel, the service was painfully slow. We had to go and ask a waiter to come and take our order and then it took over 1/2 hour to get the meal and we finally had to get up and ask for a bill.

Tom,

Thanks for the heads up. I had heard similar things about the Iguazu Sheraton. We are looking for an hotel in town on the Argentine side. I am investigating Hotel Cataratas as an alternative.
