Foz do Iguaçu is a town, built solely for tourism. There is also the giant Itaipu embankment dam, so there are some electrity workers around – but most people in Foz do Iguaçu are living from tourism. The Hotel Pietro Angelo is in the center of the town.
Maybe the smallest airport I’ve ever landed on. They airport is 17 km away from the city center and also called “Cataratas”, because it is the main entry point to las Cataratas do Iguaçu – the fantastic waterfalls of Iguaçu in Brazil and Argentina. It is tiny, has only one security control point and you can arrive pretty late. And eat some last Pão de Queijo (cheese balls) before entering the plane.
The airport of São Paulo (called Guarulhos) is located 26 km afar from the city center. It is a big airport with long distances to walk and nice restaurants. The airport is connected to the city by busses running from the lower level of the airport. Like on any airport in South America you’ll have to wait some time for immigration control.
