Has anyone on DDF booked an intra-Argentina fare intended for locals only?
No but being limited to hand luggage only, and ruling out the AArgentinas flights plus the possibility of being 'asked' for extra payment at the airport, doesn't appeal that much.

Could certainly be useful for hikers/those on a strict budget though.

I've read FT reports of people checking luggage without issue.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

3. You now have an opportunity to visit both sides of the falls without any visas or reciprocity fees.
us citizens don't need to pay  reciprocity fees to see the brazilian side?

When Brazil waived the visa fee for the summer Olympics last year you didn't. Now you have to pay to go to the Brazilian side.

You do, plus need to apply for visa before.

Thanks
Once at it
Is the Sheraton on the falls worth the extra $$$$?
also, are there perks by staying in the falls? like free second day, night tours etc?

You can access the falls outside of the Park's hours if that's what you mean by perks.

As many in that thread noted, it's probably just to grab the routes while available. But still welcome news.

anyone have any suggestions for grocery stores that sell frozen travel meals in BA?  Also looking for private guide, driver?  Likely staying in Recoleta and going to Chabad for shabbat- is this still my best option?
