We were picked up and dropped off at the stables and left there without warning nobody speaking English. It was my first time on a horse too. We were given a horse but poor thing looked tired and restless. We trotted on for 20 mins along dusty roads with motorcycle and dogs yapping horse was spooked and whinnied and almost chucked me off, we had no helmets either. we arrived at a Guarani village again no English so I used Google translate to communicate. V interesting chat and stroll around village. Then another 20 min horse trek back to stables.....

Wonderful experience!!! However, I recommend buying the tickets via get your guide for entry into the national park, as they are very expensive on site

Was blown away by iguazu much better than I expected and defo worth paying the extra to do the speed boat

It was amazing, totally loved the experience would recommend anytime

A great experience with friendly and helpful guides!
