If you like the thrill and being close to nature and do not mind getting soaking wet no matter how you try to avoid it then take the MACUCO rafting on the Iguaçu river. Little expensive but great fun

After a really busy visit to Cataratas do Iguacu, we took a drive into the jungle and a boat ride up the river Iguacu, running away from the crowds.

Fantastic natural wonder. The boat ride from the Brazilian side of the falls was amazing, you will get very wet. It is worth visiting the both Brazil and Argentina side of the falls to see the best views

Do not recommend - visiting during rainy season. Very nasty and ugly. The falls are amazing if the river is not high season. During rainy season falls look like a Mud river

We took the zodiac ride to the falls from the Brazilian side. It was great. We started with a nature drive, an interesting walk down to the river--might be a bit challenging for some, then a fun boat ride over small cataracts. The highlight was the boat goes under one of the smaller falls. Bring a dry bag for your... More

Walked the bridges out to the falls on both sides Brazil and Argentina. Watch for turtles in the water we saw three hanging onto stones near the falls one was very small how they were going to get out of that one is anybody's guess.

it is cool to say u were in a river that divides 3 different countries but also there is not an amazing view, so if u don´t have enough time, better to go to other places around

The river is breathtakingly huge! We went on a boat ride on the river and you can see the power of the river by how fast it flows. If you have the chance please take the time to experience the powerful river.

Not so much the river itself, but that wonderful set of waterfalls, Having been to both Victoria and Niagara, I think this place outclasses them both. "Like Niagara on Viagra"
