Yacaratia Trail : detailed info requested

We are confirmed to visit Iquazu Falls early Spring with the Yacaratia Trail as an afternoon tour. Due to a low level disability and discomfort with reptiles ie snakes etc. we need to know in detail what to expect in terrain re walking the trail, and the possibility of reptiles.

We might be better to chose another tour before payment is due and will make the decision based on feedback from travellers...and thank you for the info re taxis who take tourists in/out of Brazil side....

The trail can be done with a 4WD drive vehicle. I did not see any wildlife on this trail. The trail is like a large unpaved road with forest on both sides. I would imagine if you went at night then it might be a different story. Most all the other trails(walkways) at Iguazu are cement or metal with railings to prevent you from going into the rainforest area. It's posssible to use wheelchairs on many of these walkways. A small train will take you near the Devil's Throat. Even though this area is rainforest, it is quite developed and organized

My only suggestion to you would be that you wait to book your tours until you arrive at Iguazu. All of the tours are readily available at a moment's notice. You will not have a problem being accomodated. This will give you an opportunity to access the areas;chat with some of the other tourists and workers in the park;then decide on which tours which you would like to do.

By Brazilian law US and Canadian citizens are required to have a Brazilian Visa to cross the border. However, there are taxi/remise drivers who will take you there without a visa;stay with you and focus your day on the Brazilian park tourist areas.

These can be arranged at any of the hotels in the area. The drivers all congregate in the lobby/reception areas and are easy to recognize.
