Macuco Trail and surroundings The panoramic bus will take you 10 kilometers into the jungle. It's not just an ordinary bus!

During the first part of the tour, the guide will explain everything about Iguazú and tell you some fun facts that you probably didn't know. You'll also see waterfall jumps that are on the Argentinean side, but with a great panoramic view because you'll be in front of them, on the Brazilian side.

Senda Das Cataratas It's the third stop and the busiest one. Here begins the path that will take you to the Garganta del Diablo. On the way, we will pass by three viewpoints that will show us the waterfalls in all their glory.

When the end is near, you will reach two platforms that will allow you to be very close to the Garganta del Diablo. The path is "above" the water: pure emotion! Be ready and willing to get soaked. Also, if you have a camera, don't forget to protect it from the water. The experience will be 100% worth it.

Macuco Jungle Safari Buckle up, the adventure begins. You'll get on board a small electric car that will take you a mile into the jungle. The Iguazu River is waiting for you... But how will you get there?

You will descend to the port by a curious escalator in the middle of the jungle. They'll remind you a lot of the Indiana Jones movies. Once you are there, you'll have two navigation options: the "wet" and "dry" one. In the dry option you will stop about 20 meters away from the jumps so you don't get wet. In the wet option you will literally pass under the Three Musketeers jump and get soaked from head to toe. It's a thrill!

Macuco Safari Navigation For an additional cost, you can leave your belongings in a locker at the port. You will embark on a semi-rigid boat to start the 5 km journey along the river to the Falls.

The boat will take you to the famous Macuco fall, a 20-meter high waterfall that emerges among the millenary rocks. It will be a ride of pure adrenaline, where you will feel totally connected to nature. The tour ends on a deck where there's a bar and a craft shop. There are also changing rooms, so you can change your clothes if you want to.

Rodrigo y su equipo gestionaron todo el tour como un reloj ¡un trabajo impresionante! Y todos en Macuco fueron acogedores, y divertidos con nosotros. Fue realmente un día que nunca olvidaremos!

Steve · 23 de noviembre de 2019
The Macuco Safari should be a mandatory activity when visiting the falls on the Brazilian side.You have the option of choosing the "wet" or "dry" option; the first one is the one that approaches one of the falls and where you get totally wet (pure adrenaline!). The guide recommended it to us and we are very happy to have selected this option!
