Want more days? Fewer days? Fewer waterfalls? More nightlife? Let us know! We do the planning just to make it easy on you, but the trip is all yours – we’ll add or subtract based on what matters most to you.

Days 1-3

Iguazu Falls

  • Private, up-close tours of Iguazu Falls in both Argentina and Brazil.

Don’t let the name fool you; it’s paradise!
