Iguazu recovers attractions

After meeting all the demands requested, the destination Iguazú once again has one of its top attractions


In the last week of January the fabulous catamaran rides resumed during full moon nights, with live music and all the attractive surrounding this missionary wonder. It means another advance in Argentine tourism to receive the international community once the pandemic is overcome.

 Puerto Iguazú , on the northeast corner of the Province of Misiones, has the privilege of being 20 minutes from the Iguazu National Park, an area that houses the famous Falls, declared in 2011 as one of the New Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

However, beyond how remarkable it is to contemplate this authentic beauty of nature, the missionary city has excellent options to complete a fascinating stay.

Precisely, one of these possibilities is the catamaran ride along the Iguazu and Paraná rivers on the five monthly full moon nights. In another advance of Argentine tourism in pursuit of the best preparation to return to international tourism once the pandemic has overcome the pandemic, the catamaran of maximum comfort resumed its activities on January 15 and 26, the aforementioned night trips.

“Both in Iguazu, and in the rest of the country, we see the daily effort of all workers to recover tourism activity. The revival of the catamaran is another example that Argentina does not stop and continues to work from sun to sun to, once sanitary conditions permit, be ready to receive the international community,” said the executive secretary of the National Institute for Tourism Promotion ( INPROTUR), Ricardo Sosa.

The ship, called Victoria Austral, which can accommodate 300 passengers - for the time being, in compliance with the current health protocols, has 50 percent of its coupo-, presents night navigation on full moon nights with two and a half hours of service on board and a musical show included.

The tour of the boat is through the iconic mouth of the Iguazu River in the Paraná where you can see at the same time the Milestone of the Triple Border of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, the Tancredo Neves Bridge linking Puerto Iguazu with Foz do Iguaçu, in Brazil, and the Iryapu Forest riverside.

In addition to the full moon program, the catamaran can be boarded daily at its sunset, with a guided tour and live music show. On weekends in the morning presents a shorter, guided and no-show walk. On-board dining options include fast meals, cafés and drinks.
