One of the highlights of our trip through South America was the Helisul Helicopter Tour over Foz Do Iguacu (Iguazu Falls) in Brazil.

The Helisul Taxi Aereo (air taxi) tour office and helicopter pad is located on Avenida Das Cataratas (Falls Avenue) at KM 16.5 in the city of Foz Do Iguacu, Brazil.

To reach the Helisul staff by phone, dial (Country Code) +55  (Area Code) 045 (Telephone Number) 3529-7474.

To get to Helisul we took a short taxi ride from the Hotel Saint George in Puerto Iguazu, Argentina over the border to the city of Foz Do Iguacu in Brazil.

Once we arrived at Helisul, we paid about $75 USD per person for the 10 minute flight over Iguazu Falls (A.K.A. "Iguassu") and waited a few minutes for two other tourists to arrive.

In preparation for our one day tour of Parque Nacional Do Iguacu (Iguacu Falls National Park) and the Helisul tour in Brazil, we purchased Brazilian tourist visas for a "reciprocity" fee of $100 USD each at the Embassy of Brazil in Miami, Florida.

I've read that some people have been able to cross over from Argentina into Brazil to view the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls without having a Brazilian Visa, but we didn't want to risk it. The Brazilian tourist visa in our passports is good for five years, so at least we can visit Brazil in the near future without having to pay the $100 fee again.

Luckily, I was first to the helicopter and was able to jump in the front passenger seat. The three rear seats of the helicopter have excellent views as well from the large side windows. The front seat's slight advantage is that you can also see the falls beneath your feet through the windows on the floor.
