We were picked up and dropped off at the stables and left there without warning nobody speaking English. It was my first time on a horse too. We were given a horse but poor thing looked tired and restless. We trotted on for 20 mins along dusty roads with motorcycle and dogs yapping horse was spooked and whinnied and almost chucked me off, we had no helmets either. we arrived at a Guarani village again no English so I used Google translate to communicate. V interesting chat and stroll around village. Then another 20 min horse trek back to stables.....

it's a shared pick up transfer so remember to allow extra time. it took us an hour to get from hotel to airport. a normal taxi would be 20 mins depending on traffic

Transfer went well. You will be taken to Paraguay and then have almost 5 hours to explore the city on your own.

Was blown away by iguazu much better than I expected and defo worth paying the extra to do the speed boat

Arrived on time, very smooth over the boarder and everything arranged for us!
