I did this tour 16 years ago and feel like I didn't get as wet...at least not on purpose. The weather and visibility was bad, the water was super high, and we were limited to how far up the river we could go. I feel like last time we didn't purposely drive under falls to purposely get everyone soaked (though... More

We did quite all the activities in Iguacu: helicopter, argentinian park, brazilian park... macuco safari is the activity that will bring you the closest to the fall and to tasting the water :) We simply loved it. Car ride / walk is a slow preparation to the very awaited boat ride. Driver is super good and will navigate you to... More

This is a great tour that takes around 3 hours. The safari at the start isn't that exciting, regardless of whether you stay in the car or do the walk. The boat ride makes up for it though. You will get absolutely soaked during this so don't take anything electronic or valuable! You get to see a lot of the... More

On the Brazilian side you will probably have time to do a tour after doing the main trail that leads to the falls. This is a perfect tour. The first part is a safari tour through the forest. It is a little disappointing because it is very short, but then you get to the boat ride which is the best... More

Prepare to be totally wet - do not forget extra dry clothing or take swimsuit!!! Great experience - to see and feel the falls from absolutely different point of view, but really really overpriced! The staff is great and the tour through the rain-forest is quite interesting. It is not must-do attraction, but if you have enough money why not... More

Very nice to see some of the forest and be on the Parana river with a fast boat. Nice experience, but not necessary to see the impressive Iguassu Falls. Because you have to enter the park (and pay entry) to the Park, which gives you all views on the Brazilian side of the Iguassu Falls. Macuco races you through the... More

I think the ponchos are just a token gesture as they have no impact of keeping out the wet! It was so funny and just a great time. We laughed and laughed. The boat drivers seem to really know what they are doing. Quite a fees steps down the the loading platform. There are lockers and toilets onsite. If I... More

This is a must-do if you are visiting the Falls. The boat ride is really fun. You will get DRENCHED so be prepared :)
