Travel information

The city of Foz do Iguaçu is located in the Southern Region of Brazil, in Paraná State, right on the border with Argentina and Paraguay. The easiest way is to set your final destination in Brazil as Aeroporto Internacional de Foz do Iguaçu (IGU). This international airport is only a taxi drive from the hotel.

The main airport hub in Brazil is Guarulhos International Airport in São Paulo (GRU). Most international airlines will have daily flights directly to GRU. From GRU, there are daily direct flights to IGU operated by the Brazilian airlines Latam and Gol. The direct flights from GRU to IGU take about 1 hour and 30 minutes. If GRU is your first port of entry in Brazil, you must clear customs at GRU before connecting to IGU.

Please note that there is another city airport in São Paulo, Congonhas Airport (CGH), that also offers direct flights to Iguaçu Falls. If you plan to fly to GRU, it is recommended to avoid transferring from GRU to CGH, as this can take a significant amount of time, depending on traffic.

There are also direct flights to IGU from other international airports in Brazil, including Galeão Airport in Rio de Janeiro (GIG), Porto Alegre (POA), Viracopos Airport in Campinas (VCP), Curitiba (CWB), and Florianópolis (FLN). The IGU airport also receives direct flights from Lima, Montevideo and Santiago de Chile. If you decide to land in Argentina and cross the border to Brazil, the nearest airport in Argentina is Aeropuerto Internacional Cataratas del Iguazu (IGR), which operates flights from Buenos Aires and other cities in Argentina.
