I'm coming with my girlfriend by night bus from SP on Thu, arriving on Fri at 10 a.m. and leaving on Sun afternoon back.

Could any1 answer a few questions for me, pls?

1] Which bus on Sun is it necessary to take, if we need to arrive around 7a.m. (no later). The bus companies post different length of travel: Kaiowa 14,15->6,10; Pluma 14,30->4,25 or 16->8. Which is realistic and better company? I couldn't find Kaiowa bus to Foz.

2] where to change $ and how much do we need on ARG side? Better to change it in SP?

3] Is the boat tour on ARG side worth it? (on BRA is more expensive)

4] Is it really impossible 2 hike the longer trails in BRA National Park (NP) alone without a guide? Which trails are the best and how long/strenuous they are?

5] Is Itaipu open on Sunday or not? Unless, we have to go there and to Cid. del este on Fri, then on Sat the whole day in ARG and on Sun just half day for BRA side :( How to get on the more detailed longer tour? What's that night show whatever it is on the dam?

6] Regarding our schedule, where would you sleep? Is there no problem to get on buses to Foz and BRA NP from the hostels near the airport? I plan to sleep in ARG on Fri (cheaper), then go 2 ARG NP, on Sat sleep in BRA, go as early as possible 2 BRA NP. Any recommendations? Is camping possible/worth it?

7] or better invitations to a couch;) My gf is Brasilian, we have equipment 4 camping-need just 2x2m2 anywhere on floor:)

8] where is better to go out on Fri, Sat nights? Puerto, FOz or Cid. del Este?

Thanks a lot!

Take care and maybe c u!
