What to expect

Are you ready for a wet adventure? Your day begins at the entrance to the Macuco Safari, located 25 kilometers down Cataratas Highway inside Iguassu National Park. Board open jeep-towed wagons that allow for an unobstructed view of the scenery along the trail. During the stretch of three kilometers through the jungle, your guide will point out examples of the flora and fauna of the park. Don't miss the opportunity to admire orchids, palm trees, bromeliads, centenarian trees, and wild animals.

The hike is the second stage of your day. On a stretch of 600 meters, is a hike on a trail that leads to a waterfall called "Macuco Falls" (optional). The waterfall spills down from a height of approximately 20 meters. Access is via a stairway carved into the ancient rock. Make your way down on a short drive on an open-top jeep to reach the last stop, the Macuco Safari docks on the Brazilian side of the Iguassu River. In the water, inflatable bi-motor boats await you. Before embarkation, you receive life-vests and plastic containers in which to protect photographic and filming equipment. The boat travels up-river passing the canyon facing the rapids at a speed that allows for scenic viewing. Rocks, animals and ample amounts of greenery complete the scenery until the base of the Falls is reached, next to the "great horseshoe" know as the "Devils Throat". Enjoy a waterfall shower. Rainbows, blue sky, mist and water in abundance, punctuate the spectacle whose high-point is the "The Three Musketeers".
