Know More about this tour

Located a few kilometers from the union of the Iguassu and Paran River, the waterfalls will take your breath away with their size and strength. You will enjoy a panoramic helicopter flight. Thrilling, informative, this helicopter flight gives a completely different and unique perspective of the spectacular waterfalls.
Ecological trails, canyons, wild animals and a spectacular view. Iguassu Falls are some of the things you will encounter during the Macuco safari excursion through the Iguassu National Park.
The adventure begins at the entrance to the Macuco Safari, located 25km (15.5mi) 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 3km (1.8mi) stretch of the jungle, multi-lingual guides will point out flora and fauna in the Park. Orchids, palm trees, bromeliads, centenarian trees, and even wild animals that occasionally cross the trail are pointed out by the guides.
The hike is the second stage of your journey. On a stretch of 600m (1968ft), is a hike on a trail that leads to a waterfall called Macuco Falls (optional). The waterfall is perfect for a refreshing dip on hot days and spills down from a height of approximately 20m (65ft). Access is via a stairway carved into the ancient rock.
The last stop is the Macuco Safari docks on the Brazilian side of the Iguassu River. In the water, inflatable bi-motor boats await you. They are constructed to withstand the rigors of the excursion, as well as be secure and efficient vessels. Before embarkation, passengers 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. Rainbows, blue sky, mist and water in abundance, punctuate the spectacle whose high-point is the The Three Musketeers. Here the captain maneuvers the boat in order to get close enough to provide the passengers with a quick and refreshing shower.
The bird park is conveniently located at the entrance of the Iguassu National Park, and fully integrated into its natural surroundings. Mingle with and photograph hundreds of different native and exotic birds, reptiles, caimans, marmosets and butterflies in spacious walk-through aviaries and trails that wind through the jungle.

    I was led to believe this was an English tour. It was all Portuguese. The hike is worthless and a big waste of time. So is the journey through the trails. You don't see any wildlife. And the hordes of people have destroyed most all of the natural aspect. The boat tour under the falls is cool. The bird park is nice. I love nature. But I had to skip the picture with the macau to do my helicopter ride. Turns out, they wouldn't let me do it, because they only fly groups of three. Even though they flew with two while I was standing there. My guide couldn't handle the situation. I had already paid for the whole thing. This whole tour is just a cluster of disorganized junk.

    They don't pick up from Argentinian hotels, so you have to buy a taxi ride to meet them. They tell you a time to meet, but it is in the wrong time zone. The big perk is that you skip the long lines at the Brazil border.... but then they leave you at some tourist trap souvenir shop with rocks for 45 minutes.
