Una cosa mas:
I know that a visa is now required for US citizens to visit Brazil (which costs US$100). However, I read recently that a visa is NOT required for short visits across the border to the Brazilian side of the falls ... and that all US citizens had to do was pay an entrance fee at the border. Verdad? O no? Hay que obtener una visa o no? Si es que se necisita una visa para visitar a Brasil, vale la pena pagar US$100??? , GRACIAS por tu ayuda!

Ron, as far as we know, a visa is required.

We have also heard stories that you can cross the border by 'bribing' an official. I highly discourage this. Unless you are 20, backpacking and are looking for some adventure I would not risk a trip. Just consider that you will be spending anywhere from $700 to $1200 in your international ticket and then another $350 to $500 for your visit to Iguazu. At the high end you are into $1700 or so. Why risk the entire vacation for $150/$175? You may end up having an enormous headache in a country you can't even communicate. To our passengers, we either recommend not to get the visa because it is costly (and NOT cross the border) or if they insist, pay the full price... Anything in between you are talking risk. There is a reason why Brazilian require a visa from US citizens and it is probably not nice.
