We started the day with a visit to the fields of Misiones Province where we see small plantations of yerba mate, a tree that has leaves and twigs used in the preparation of the most popular tea in Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and south of Brazil. Following we arrive at a mine of geodes, agates and crystals coming from basalt. There we will know all the steps of extraction, selection, work on the gems and display for sale. In return we will pass by an Indian tribe to know their way of life and understand a little more about the first inhabitants of the land of the falls.

Marcelo was the ultimate tour guide! He was always prompt, professional,friendly and eager to share his vast knowledge of his country including plant, animal and bird life. Marcelo was attentive to our personal needs. He navigated customs for us with ease and efficiency. His attention to detail was unsurpassed! He even washed his car every night as part of his high standards. We spent 4 days with Marcelo and could not have asked for a better ambassador for Brazil and Argentina. Thanks for everything!!
