Description

Be collected at your accommodation and go to the currency exchange office with your guide to get Argentine currency, which you need to enter the Argentine National Park. Make two custom stops, one for foreigners at the Brazilian Customs and one for everyone at the Argentine Customs.  A train leaves every 30 minutes to the superior part of the falls. Here, is the beginning of the trails and walkways. At the end of the trail, you will find the Garganta do Diabo or Devil's Throat, which is the biggest waterfall in the park. Devil's Throat has a 2080 meter footbridge that leads to one of the most beautiful natural spectacles on earth. Make a stop to behold and absorb all the nature and landscape around. Then begin the second part of the tour, the Circuito Superior or Superior Circuit. When you reach the top, you will be able to see all the high points of the park. There you can visit six observatories with space to relax and appreciate the view. Then begin the Lower Circuit of the Cataratas. This time you will see everything from below, with eight observatories really close to the falls. The Gran Aventura combines the jungle and the waterfalls, which are the essence of the National Park of the lguazú.  From the Operations Center (at the bottom) or from the Visitors Center (at the top), you will enter the forest along the narrow Yacaratiá path into units designed for that particular environment. Guides who speak Spanish and English will help you to interpret the natural and cultural riches of the place. This 5-kilometer vehicular route culminates at the base of the Macuco Port jungle. After descending to 100 meters you will reach the pier, where you can board the boat. It will travel 6 kilometers from the falls and descend the Iguassu River towards the area of fast flowing waterfalls.  Reach the base of the Three Musketeers Jumping and see the set of Brazilian and Argentine jumps, with the Devil's Throat crowning the view of the canyon. Later is the peak of excitement, at the incomparable San Martin falls, which are the second largest and too large for a boat to approach. After visiting these jumps, you will sail downstream 6 kilometers, which includes 2 kilometers of rapids, to dock at the Porto Macuco pier. From there, climb 150 feet of steep stairs to the Macuco stop. Travel in a vehicle on the Yacaratiá trail to the offices near the Old Cataratas Hotel where the tour will end. Return to the bus and be dropped off at your accommodation.
