The safari is fun as you get all wet but they could do a bit of an effort to show you a bit more of the falls. What basically happens is that you get in, they put the boat underneath or very close to a...More

We decided we wanted to see the Igauçu Falls up close and what better way than a boat ride. Didn't realize we would go right underneath and get drenched, but a lot of fun was had. Enough speed and rapids to be adventurous and thrill...More

Great history about the local fauna and flora but the highlight is riding a boat up to the falls. You can choose wet or dry ride. Pic the wet one!

Response from Janet D | Reviewed this property |
First of all, it's not really a trip. It's a boat ride along a short stretch of the river and then in and out under a couple of waterfalls. It's great fun, and getting soaking wet in the frigid water felt fabulous after a... More
It looks like Macuco has docks on both the Brazilian and Argentinian sides. Do I have this right? Is there a reason to prefer the launch from one side over the other? Or launches from both side follow the same route?

Aside from the fact that you need a visa to see the Brazilian side, all attractions can be purchased locally. Being from Canada I needed a visa for Argentina $97 US. Too much to spend for a half day!
