Help to Plan My Flights PlsHello
I need advice to plan my flights.
Want to give a visit to Brazil and Argentina. I will fly from Istanbul to Sao Paulo.
But want to give a visit to Rio, Foz De Iguacu and Buenos Aires too.
Don't know which order should I plan my flights.
Need to fly back from Saou Pulo too.
2 days in Sao Paulo
Fly to Buenos Aires, stay there 3 days, and fly to Foz De iguacu,
Spend 2 days in Foz de Iguacu,
Then fly back to Rio
and back to Sao Paulo.
Don't know if it is possible to fly between these destinations:
- Buenos Aires-Foz De Iguacu
- Foz De Iguacu -Rio

I would suggest you book an open jawed flight flying in to Sao Paulo and out of Buenos Aires. This will probably cost less than a return to SP and a single flight to BsAs and it will save you a days travel.
If you do that it becomes a simple case of flying SP-Rio then Rio-Foz, cross over the border and fly Iguazu - BsAs.

5I think I have found the best deal for you.
I am going to work in British £ as that is the currency I found them in.
Take-off Fri 9:30 IST Istanbul, Turkey
Landing Fri 18:10 GRU São Paulo, Brazil
TAM – Flights 8015 2h 40m
Take-off Fri 22:10 AEP Buenos Aires, Argentina
Landing Sat 0:50 GRU São Paulo, Brazil
Connect in airport
Turkish Airlines – Flights 16 12h 20m
Take-off Sat 4:15 GRU São Paulo, Brazil
Landing Sat 21:35 IST Istanbul, Turkey
Total price £572 on lastminute.com.
This saves about £70 on booking separately and saves time and effort. I hope you can book these from Turkey.

There you go. 1634 Lira.
As my Turkish is not perfect (!!!!!!!) I can't tell if this includes taxes, but it looks like it is.

7Don't know if it is possible to fly between these destinations:
Buenos Aires-Foz De Iguacu
You can't fly from Buenos Aires to Foz De Iguaçu (on the Brazilian side of the border) but you can fly to Puerto Iguazú (on the Argentinian side of the border).
Foz De Iguacu -Rio
Yes, there are direct flights between both destinations. Several airlines make that route.

8Thanks for answers.
I don't know which side is better to see for Foz de Iguacu, May be I need to decide after this information. As I searched before Argentinian side has far better view.
And actual plan should be like this:
Sao Paulo-Buenos Aires
Buenos Aire-FozDeIguacu (Argentinian Side)
Foz De Iguacu-Rio De Janeiro

9which side has better view of Iguacu?
Argentinian Side or Brazilian Side?
Which side should I stay ? Cheaper and better accomodation?

10The Argentinian side is more spectacular but the Brazilian side gives a better overall view. It is definately best to view the Brazilian side first.
I still think you should go with the flights in to Sao Paulo and out of Buenos Aires. Your route just isn't the most logical. Is there a reason you have to do the places in the order you say?
IST - Sao Paulo
Sao Paulo - Rio De Janeiro
Rio De Janeiro - Foz De Iguacu
Iguazu (Argentinian side) - Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires - IST (via Sao Paulo)
My itinerary just makes more sense.
