The Macuco Safari - a 2 km hike through the forest and a boat ride into the canyon and under the waterfall. The girls really loved the boat ride part, we got totally wet.

The UNESCO World Heritage listed Iguaçu Falls have been on our list ever since we arrived in Brazil.

Flying in from São Paulo gives you the first glimpse of the falls. No photo does this place any justice - it is vast in every way - size, sound, length.

The Park is extremely well setup, no private vehicles are allowed entry and everything is done by bus. The result is clear views uncluttered by car parks and visitor centers.

We stayed at the Hotel das Cataratas right on the falls, and after checking in we immediately hit the trail to the Falls, just across the road.

The walk was spectacular and runs for about 2 kms along the top of the canyon on the Brazil side giving an ever changing view of the falls. The walk ends near the "Devils Throat" and a platform that takes you right out the very edge of the falls.

Simply breathtaking place. Go there man.
