It can be a little expensive for just 10 minutes in a boat. You get really wet. You can use your phone, but it’s at your own risk. You can by a plastic coat but you get wet with it.

Aside from the fact that you need a visa to see the Brazilian side, all attractions can be purchased locally. Being from Canada I needed a visa for Argentina $97 US. Too much to spend for a half day!
