Sendero Macuco, Puerto Iguazu

4.3
#1 of 8 in Outdoors in Puerto Iguazu
Immerse yourself in Argentinian wildlife at Sendero Macuco. Take a hike for 7 km (4.3 mi) roundtrip to experience the waterfalls. Along the way keep an eye out for local animal life, especially the Cai monkeys. These monkeys are indigenous to the area and can be seen in the trees and on the path. The path itself can be challenging, so be sure to wear proper shoes. Also, you may want to take swimming gear so you can plunge into the cooling pool at the waterfall. You can plan Puerto Iguazu trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

    I recommend go prepared for a hike along a path between the jungle, very pleasant, easy traffic, surrounded by species, birds singing, colors, first reaching the top of the waterfall and then round it and go down the stairs from stones and surprised finding a clearing where a bathroom is can occur. We enjoyed a picnic, Sun, butterflies, the cool breeze caused by the proximity of the waterfall. An experience of several hours.

    We opted for experience wet! We went in a group and it was fun... I recommend a day of Sun and heat! Account with lockers to leave the backpack and clothes to change... don't forget to go in swimsuit, sandals and carry a towel with clothes dry for the return! What if I thought it was a lot of people waiting... and I imagine that they can not get more of one rubber raft for the time so that must be patience... to us took us in total 3 hours since we got the entrance until the return.

    The Macuco is very very cute, takes you two hours making it quiet, also ends in a very pretty waterfall. It is worth
