We booked the safari through our hotel and they provided us with towels and plastic ponchos which was so necessary especially if you opted for the wet version of the safari trip. When you arrive at the Macuco safari park, a truck takes you through the rainforest and the guide points out things of interest along the way. You can... More

You go on the safari for the boat ride into the falls, everything else is kind of run of the mill. The boat ride is AMAZING!!!! First, the perspective you get from being on the Iguassu river with the rainforest to the right and left of you is simply stunning. You feel IN the jungle. Then, you ride the thrilling... More

My daughter & I donned ponchos bought at the nearby shop & put our valuables in a locker before the trip, so we came out dry!! The boat was navigated skillfully near enough to the falls to avoid filling the boat with water-a fun adventure.

It is essential to wear the right clothes. Tshirt and shorts or 100% waterproofs. Great trip really enjoyed it but not for the faint hearted.They give discounts for seniors! They need a bigger area to change clothes with seating. Considering it is not cheap I would say that the lockers should be included! Not recommended for young children!

You will definitely get wet and there is no option on avoiding it. Wait, there is one other ride in which you do not get close to the falls.. But if you have young children or teenagers you should prepare to get wet. They will enjoy this very short (maybe 10 minutes) ride. It approaches a couple of the small... More

I did this with my 7 year old daughter but there were babies as young as 6 months in the safari. You can chose to get wet or not (lots of fun getting wet- you get completely soaked). If you have travelled from far away to visit the falls you should try this!!!

It's the best way to get as close to the waterfall as you can get. There's a "train" trip inside the forest with a guide telling us about the place and then a boat trip the gets inside one of the falls. It's very exciting and we loved it.

To have the chance of going under the almighty Iguaçu river on a speed boat and be soaked with its waters was by itself an AMAZING experience. The price is fair, they get you pictures and the experience lasts a lifetime!
