Full description
Start the tour with pick up from your hotel in Foz do Iguaçu. Travel for 5-km to the Puerto Macuco forest base on the Argentinian side of the Iguazu National Park. From the visitor center, embark on a thrilling hike through the jungle, descending 100 meters until you arrive at the river. 

From here, climb aboard a specially designed boat and sail for another 6 kilometers through the canyon of the Iguaçu Lower River towards the waterfalls. A tip, if you want the best views and picture opportunities, try to sit on the right side of the boat. Enjoying crashing through the rapids, then continue on to the base of the Salto Tres Mosqueteros to see the Brazilian Jumps and Devil's Throat waterfalls. Feel the incredible rush of emotions as you get close to the incomparable Salto San Martin waterfalls, the largest cascade that can be approached by boat.

To finish the tour, disembark at the pier located in front of the island San Martín, from where you can walk along a network of boardwalks through the lower circuit of the falls. The current caused by the waterfalls will provide you with moments of great excitement and adrenaline - as you end this unforgettable tour. Drive back to Foz do Iguaçu where you will be dropped off at your hotel.

We were so sorry that we did not get information that it is forbidden for us deaf and hearing impaired to ride a boat even though we paid for! You want to have rules for all pregnant women before ordering tickets on getyourguide! However, our guide who was from Brazil o recommended taking the boat from there it is for all accessibility! Brazil is better and fine views of Argentina's waterfalls. Go there!

It is the second time I do this boat ride and I am always amazed and this time I could not resist the desire to buy the video where we all got soaked and asking it to be repeated. You can not miss this walk in the visit to the falls. Full adrenaline and excitement!

The transport came to the hotel on time, spoke good English and accompanied you well through the day. If you take the boat tour through the waterfalls you should take change items with you because you are guaranteed to get wet down to your underpants despite the rain cap. It is best to stow your shoes and stockings in the waterproof bags during the boat tour. A waterproof case for the camera / cell phone is also mandatory.
