Sendero Macuco, Puerto Iguazu

4.3
#1 of 9 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.

  • Required walking and direct and full contact with the jungle. Safety pin! bring water and food as there is in all the way and gets very hot!

  • Beautiful place, the walk is very long, bring enough water and keep in mind that it can be very heavy to walk with children or elderly people. At the end it is Arrechea jump that is truly a paradise. 100% recommended. It is to devote a full day to this walking and being in that jump.
