The safari on the way there and back is a little robotic and felt like an afterthought of the main activity involved, which is the boat ride to the waterfalls and immersing the boat under the falls so you get drenched. I absolutely loved this...More

Response from Janet D | Reviewed this property |
First of all, it's not really a trip. It's a boat ride along a short stretch of the river and then in and out under a couple of waterfalls. It's great fun, and getting soaking wet in the frigid water felt fabulous after a... More
It looks like Macuco has docks on both the Brazilian and Argentinian sides. Do I have this right? Is there a reason to prefer the launch from one side over the other? Or launches from both side follow the same route?

Aside from the fact that you need a visa to see the Brazilian side, all attractions can be purchased locally. Being from Canada I needed a visa for Argentina $97 US. Too much to spend for a half day!
