Macuco Safari and Boat Trip
click to enlargeThe Safari starts with a drive of 3 km along a forest trail in a cart pulled by a electrical vehicle. Several stops are made for bilingual guides to provide information about the flora and fauna of the park. At the 3 km point, an optional 600 meter walking trail leads to a small waterfall called Salto do Macuco. From there, the trail continues to the banks of the Iguassu River, where an upstream zodiac boat tour to Devil´s Throat begins. The exhilarating rafting expedition is made in a large, sturdy, double engine rubber launch and affords the visitor a unique and breathtakingly beautiful view of the Falls. People get wet in this tour. First tour starts at 9:30 a.m. and the last tour departs at 4:00 p.m.
Location: Iguassu National Park, 3 km (2 miles) before the Brazilian side of the Falls
Approximate time: 2 to 3 hours plus travel time
Travel distance: 24 km (15 mi) from Iguassu Falls city center
