Getting up early, at 5am to get to the Jorge Newbury Airport. Taxi was 150 pesos and domestic flight is checked in fairly quickly and no queues on security. Bought two coffees for 160 pesos in total and had some simple breakfast we prepared yesterday. We flew with LATAM. You can download an app to watch movies on the plane through WiFi for free. But the flight was quite short. We got water on board.
After landing, my checked-in rucksack was very dirty from some liquid soap or shower gel or something which broke in someone else’s luggage. Luckily I use Doldy rucksack cargo bag, so I could clean it very simply.
We waited to get bus tickets to Puerto Iguazu from the Airport. Some Argentinian people skipped us in the queue and a German traveller told them off. Thanks for that! Last two tickets for that bus. 120 pesos per person. As we were buying the tickets, they asked at what hotel we want to drop off. Minibuses stands in front of the exit, fits around 15 people in. Our hotel El Duende was the last stop and we checked in. Payed using dollars.
It was around 1pm and we decided to withdraw some pesos, buy some food in a supermarket (430 pesos), have some empanadas and coffee in El Árbol Real (120 pesos) and walk to the viewpoint where the rivers join and where you can see all three countries - Paraguay, Brasil, Argentina. Then we walked back to the hotel and stopped for an ice drink in Freddo (90 pesos).
It is Christmas Eve, most of the restaurants close early, we asked few about what time they close and decided to have dinner at one of them - Bambú Restobar. It was okay, not bad 2x sirloin steak, nice evening with 4 draught Quilmes beers (1000 pesos).
