Bob,
I'm a newbie on this blog but I have gained a TON of knowledge from your posts, as I am about to embark on my first South America visit on August 4. I'll be in BA for a few days, then have a similar arrangement to yours, in that I found a very reasonable flight on Pluna Air to Asuncion, allowing my buddy and I to stay a night in Montevideo, and then fly on to Asuncion. We still need to arrange transportation to Iguazu from Asuncion (thank goodness we already have multiple entry visas where we hope to stay for a couple of nights. We then need to get back to Asuncion (probably taking one of those luxurious buses I hear about) for our flight back to BA. All that (flights with over nights in Montevideo and Asuncion) for $220 US. Amazing. The RT from BA to Puerto Iguazo was $350 US. Thanks again for all the great and appropriate tips! The only difference is that we're going the hostal route. We're only in on mid-50s - just kids - hehehe,
Dan

Daniel, Maybe you could share who you may be booking the Pluna flights with if you are from the USA. I saw very reasonable flights on the Pluna website, but when I went to pay for them on line, my credit card was rejected because it wasn't from Uruguay. It might just be that the deals are for those who live down there. So, now I am looking for a travel agent or website that could help me with my plans.

Rhkkmk: I just found your great report and the wonderful photos, which brought me very nice memories of my trip to Argentina.

You put a lot of work in to the report and I can't even imagine how to upload the photos.
Many thanks for the "re-run" of my trip in 2007.

What an excellent trip report! I'm hoping to go to Argentina in December and will use this report as a reference. Many thanks for taking the time to post and to include your references.

I just started reading this. Saw the reference to "terrorists" that Juliet made. Your description of her as "conservative" might be accurate but am wondering if "fascist" might be more appropriate.

mrwunrfl, exactly, and actually most of the 30.000 people killed weren't "terrorists"; this is a very sad chapter in Argentinian history that people are not trying to forget but to bring the culprits to justice.

thanks, very helpful info on Paraguay, especially Iguazu (I'm also thinking of overlanding from Asuncion, but would then like to visit the Argentine missions from the falls). I may try to visit in May 2011 (all vacations booked or planned up 'til then).

How did you get in touch with avrooster. I also like his comments on fodors. We'd love to have dinner with him.

Bob, you were such a great help to me in planning my southeast Asia trip last year, and now you're back again, helping with my upcoming visit to Argentina.

Just finished reading this through, and to no surprise I love it!
Off to check out your fantastic photos.
