Took a boat trip up the Iguassu river after crossing from Brazil to Argentina. Great views. Wonderful experience. Got to sode the rapids and get soaked under a waterfall or two ! Wonderful scenery.

We enthusiastically signed up for the Macuco boat and river rafting tour. The boat trip was great, however the river rafting was a total bust. The guides were disorganized and kept changing guides. A trip for 2 people tuned into a trip for 12 and we waited for over an hour in the hot sun until the raft was full. When we finally set off, we rafted through small rapids for the first 10% of the river and then our guide told us to get out of the boat and float. What he didn’t tell us was that we would float for the rest of the trip! This trip was not “as advertised” and we should have been told the river was so far down that there was only one set of rapids. We floated for over an hour. We asked for a refund and were told that this is a normal trip! Do not even think about doing this tour!

Along the Iguazú river there are the famous falls, a spectacular natural wonder. The Devil´s Throat and the many other falls are perfectly visible from the Brasilian part during a pleasant walk of 2-3 hours. The river continues until Puerto Iguazú where it merges into the Paraná, marking the spot where three counties are visible (Argentina, Brasil, Paraguay)

The river runs for some 1,300 KM from Serra da Baitac in Brazil and essentially ends as it flows over the Iguazu Fall on the border of the three countries.It is a massive water flow and quite interesting to se although there are few points above the falls where you can actually get a good view of the river.

As with the Iguazu Falls, the Iguazu River is a nust see destination. The sheer volume of water flowing towards the falls is awe inspiring. However, a word of warning, the area is a haven for Coatis. They may look cute but they are not as adorable as they look. If they smell food, they will go for it so watch your backpack and a picnic is out of the question.

We have done a lot of white water rafting but taking a powerful boat up the rapids was a first. We got very wet when the skilled captain put us directly under the Falls. The river is simply amazing and the jungle pristine.

Go from the Argentine side to the devils throat to get an idea of how big this river is! I guess given the size of the falls, it was never going to be a stream!

You will like it differently if you see it from different points. It may seem like an ordinary river first. But when you go close to the Iguacu Falls in a boat, you will get amazed. The falls and the river go hand in hand embracing each other and the wonderful nature of Brazil.

If you seen the waterfall before you will not be impressed here. If you will see them after - you will forget the rest of the river.

Seen this river from a few different spots and rode it on a boat it is fast in some spots creating white water and clam in others but either way it’s the falls which is the main draw
