Macuco Safari Adventure - Foz do Iguaçu Falls - Unforgettable Experience
Macuco Safari has its script divided into three stages. It begins with a three-kilometer trail inland, in open cart coupled to an electric vehicle. In the second stage there is an optional walk on a 600 meter suspended trail. Bilingual guides accompany the whole course and report curiosities about local fauna and flora. The trail ends on a deck endowed with lockers, restrooms, snack bar and souvenir shop. Finally, an electric tram allows access to the dock and the twin boats of the Macuco Safari.

I'm not one for the contrived tourist experience but this was a perfect balance of respect for the environment and fun. Go for the 'wet' ride' and dress appropriately, although they do provide ponchos, nothing will stop the Falls getting down your back. The boats...More
