    Play Slap Hands!

    by ATXtraveler Written May 27, 2008

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Slap Hands is a popular game for kids, and also has alot of adults joining the craze. The object of the game is to continue having your hands below the opponent and keeping this position by turning your hand over and slapping the other player. Here at the park, there is a statue dedicated to the game that is very interesting.

    Enjoy your time in the park, and be careful not to lose to the statue!

    Macuco Safari

    Do you see the boats?

    Macuco Safari is an "adventure" which includes a 3 Km trail in an electric vehicle inside the jungle, a 600 m walking trail, and finally, an upstream boat tour towards the Devil's Throat...
    This experience coasts about 30 dollars, and it is just amazing!

    (I did not take this safari, because I did a similar one on the Argentinian side.)

    Macuco Safari es una "aventura" que incluye un sendero de 3 Km por la selva en vehículos eléctricos, una caminata de 600 m, y finalmente una navegación contracorriente en dirección a la Garganta del Diablo...
    Esta experiencia cuesta alrededor de 30 dólares, y es simplemente impactante!

    (Yo no realicé este safari, porque hice uno similar del lado argentino.)

    Equipment: A plastic bag to protect your camera.

    Una bolsa de nylon para proteger la cámara.

    Not extreme, but fun

    by swakopgirl Written Jan 20, 2004

    Several new activities are now available in the National Park.

    Abseiling: opposite San Martin Island, with a beautiful view of the Falls on the way down.

    White Water Rafting: level 3, the rapids don't go on for long, but you swim in the river afterwards, which is lovely.

    Tree climbing: you climb up to the canopy of the Atlantic Rain Forest and walk along from tree to tree while attached to a safety harness. Death slide or climb down again.

    There are hiking trails throughout the park. You'll also find birdwatching at the bird park located just outside of the entrance to the Parque Nacional. Of course, you can speed up the river on one of the Macuco Company's speed boats. You can also go repelling off of the cliffs along the river. For information on all of these activities, ask at the tourist information booth at the Welcome Center.
