In the end, I actually didn't raft, much to my disappointment, as the instructors were unable to speak English sufficienly well to clarify the safety instructions that they told me were very important to listen to. Despite hand signals, Spanish and smatterings of Emglish, I didn't feel comfortable getting onto a raft on a wild river in full flow without... More

I was nervous when my husband suggested rafting on the river by the falls. But our guide Chiago made me feel safe. Just note that the raft does not take you close to the falls, so if you're looking for an up close look try the speedboat.

Macuco rafting is a great opportunity to feel the power of the waterfalls and the Iguacu river. If you've never tried rafting before, this can be the perfect time. The track is not very difficult and it only requires a little bit of effort at the beginning. If you're an experienced rafter and you're looking for something advanced or extreme,... More

Not the most thrilling ride, but it's a nice change from walking around all day. Keep your eye out for wildlife.

Great time seeing the falls from the river. They will take you under the falls so wear your swim suit because you will get soaked.

Hi there, I recently did the white water rafting excursion here at the falls and really enjoyed it. From those who are more experienced rafters, it was not as strong as they had expected it to be. Generally between 3 and 2. Takes about 40 minutes, the guide also let us swim in the river iguasu for 15 minutes too... More

Feel the power of nature. Sensational. There are few words to describe the thrill of being a few yards of waterfalls so powerful. The entrance to the boat at Diablo Canyon accelerates the heart and delights the soul.
