Don't be afraid. It is fun, but not dangerous. They know what they are doing. Don't leave Foz do Iguacu without experiencing Macuco Safari. We were at the last boat of the day, otherwise we would love to do it again. It is not something you can try everyday, don't miss it.

This is a boat trip that takes people very near the falls. It's great fun!!! For those who are afraid of water, it's better take a look before decide going. I suggest wear light clothes, because everybody gets wet during the trip. Or better, take with you clothes to change after the trip. But it's worthwhile!!!

We did this tour for what it was, a chance to see the falls from below and got more than expected. We started with a ride through the forest towards the river in an open trailer, we then walked through the forest down a few stairs (if not up to the walk the Jeep can take you closer to the... More

While I think the emphasis on Safari is overdone as it really is just transport to the river the boat ride is worth doing to see the falls from the river level. We brought extra shorts and t shirts to change into as there is no doubt that you will get wet (drenched). The person sitting alongside us purchased a... More

Below my expectations, after many recommendations we decided to experience "breathtaking adventure" of Safari Macuco. What a dissapointment. Changing rooms and bathrooms are small, dirty and insufficient. Boat ride takes max 20 min including photo sessions, waterfall shower and "thrilling" boat ride. Not worth the price of 179 reais. If you decide to do it: take flipflops and extra clothes... More

It has to be in your list to do in iguazu, first in the car roaming through the jungle and then enjoying the freshness in the wonderfull Iguazu falls. Wear a rainjacket? bahh! don't bother you will get wet even using a rainjacket but bring spare clothes to change afterwards. Camera/phone will get wet so bring a plastic bag if... More

The focus on this well oiled money making machine is to extract as much cash as possible from you. Every boat has a camera man that shouts for you to pose for him , scream loudly and act outrageously for the benefit of the DVD video they later try to sell you. The whole purpose is to race up and... More

It is a good place to go in foz do iguacu. although very funny the whole macuco Safari tour goes even more expensive when you include in you calculation that you also have to pay the entrance tickets to the park. BRL 170,00

This was an experience of a life time and something you have to add to your to do list. Spectacular in all there glory these powerful waterfalls. Long walks to get to the best locations but well worth the effort. Not to be missed if visiting Brazil or Argentina.
