Could anybody let me know what my options to travel from Argentina to Brazil are? I know that there is a flight from BA, but I would like to go to the Iguazu falls, and from there to get to Brazil without returning to BA. Is there a bus or rental car options between Iguazu and Rio de Janeiro? Thank you for your help!

Hello Maia, these bus companies travel to Iguazu and cross the border into Brazil...
CRUCERO DEL NORTE S.R.L. 4315-1652/0478
PLUMA CONFORTO E TURISMO 4313-3880
They have offices in Buenos Aires so very likely they will have an answer for you... This is all the information I could get.

I am at the beginning stages of planning this trip. I am planning to fly into Buenos Aires in March/April, hang out for a few days in B.A., then go up to Corrientes to check out the Yerba Mate growing region and after that up to some surf spots in Brazil (Florionopolis) and then back to B.A. to fly home.
I am not sure of the best ways to get this done. (Maybe its just a bad idea to be so spread out, but I just HAVE to surf!)
It seems that bussing would cheaper than flying around... but the distance between all the spots seems like time-consuming and mind-numbing insanity even though I would like to see some countryside.
I see a couple of phone numbers for bus companies, but will they speak english if I call for a brochure?
What do you think the drawbacks would be to travelling this way?
I am desperate for efficient trip-planning consultation. I know very little Spanish and I only have three and a half weeks in between my flight in and out of B.A.
Also, what do you know about staying in youth hostels in B.A.?

Jacob, not too much knowledge on hostels. Probably a case by case thing but I can't see why not.
I traveled by bus to Brazil in a few ocassions. You will be close to Misiones so if you can make it to Puerto Iguazu it should be fairly easy to get to Florianopolis or cross the border and take a brazilian bus. They too offer a great service.
Flying is only recommended for your return trip. I would explore buying a one way ticket Florianopolis-Buenos Aires to make it in time for your flight back home. In Corrientes, you should find an abundance of bus companies and perhaps one that goes straight to F.
-> Bus to Florianopolis
<- Flight Florianopolis/BA
Some staff may speak a bit of english but if you are planning on having a long distance conversation with them, I'd say not likely. If by brochures you mean a leaflet of schedules, yes, they may have this but it will be a barebone piece of paper with no additional information, *I think*. My suggestion is to secure the one way ticket back and then, when in Corrientes, play it by ear to see which bus company goes where.
