Although it is expensive, I recommend to do it. That is a great experience. Keep in mind that you will become completely wet.

It is very nice to be under the falls and splashed on this tour. Not sure it is really worth the money you pay for it. I would not do it again if I were to come back to the falls

We really wanted to go on a boat ride at the falls and read that the Brazilian side's boats were subject to more stringent checks so chose to do it there. However, when we got to the park, we were informed that you can only do the boat ride as part of a bigger package with Macuco. This meant that... More

The boat ride is worth experiencing. Getting wet under the falls is real fun. Should carry camera or can buy the pictures taken by the Seaman for 50 reals. on a CD. The botanical trail is avoidable. The guide was quite impressive. Spoke English. Little better pricing may attract more tourists to this tour.

Taking this safari is a must in order to get a close up experience with the falls. The boats are comfortable without taking away the feeling of adventure. Plan to get wet! They have lockers to store your belongings so wearing a bathing suit and bringing a change of clothes is a great idea. We are very happy we bought... More

The activities last 45mn. And that includes only 15-20mn max on the boat. What takes longer is the waiting time (for the bus to be full and leave, in both directions) You’re driven into the "jungle" which has strictly no interest as it’s a road constantly used, so there are no animals to be seen. It’s definitely not the “wild... More

I went at the beginning of October to the Brazil side of Iguazu falls, and did the Macuco safari late in the day. The trip takes about 2 hours round trip (though it'll feel like 2 minutes!), so plan accordingly! The park closes after 5, so the Safari tours stop leaving a little after 3 I believe. The safari begins... More
