This wonder of nature permits the observation of one of the most unique landscapes in the World; constituted by the upper Iguazu River and the Subtropical Forest, which frame the incredible Devil's Throat balcony. Three ring-shaped balconies permit a special view of the colossal “throat”, the culmination of the journey: a giant horseshoe-shaped waterfall 150 meters / 492 feet long, and 80 meters / 262 feet high. Here the water falls with such potency that it creates dense clouds of vapor as it pours into the river below. From here you can experience such wonderful sensations, offering you amazing and unforgettable moments:- Just listening to the roar of the waterfalls - Feeling the vapor of waterfalls- Appreciating the rainbows that form amongst the clouds of water and rays of the sun - Admiring the contrasts of colors between the green forest and the blue sky, or the white color of the water foam and the red soil. - A separate spectacle is offered by the “vencejos” - birds unique to the Iguazu Falls that swoop down along the falls, as if they wanted to be confused with the curtains of water.This fabulous place is located 2080 m / 1 mile from the Devil's Station. You arrive by the Ecological Jungle Train, 5 km / 3miles from the Central Station. The Iguazu National Park Waterfalls Area has assorted activities. Along the upper and lower walkways you will be able to admire between 160 and 275 falls, the Devil's Throat being the most impressive one.

Nobody can describe the Iguazu Falls in words, there is only one thing I can say about them "YOU HAVE TO SEE THEM TO BELIEVE"

Visiting the " Devil's Throat" was the perfect conclusion for our visit to Iguazu Falls! This massive waterfall is awe inspiring and with the perfectly placed platforms you get an awesome view! Highly recommend!

Stunning. I visited here on crutches. An incredibly tiring walk but the staff were so kind and pushed us to the front of both train queues and the queue to see the view. Fabulous.

Definitely the highlight of the trip to the Park. The rest of the waterfalls are certainly cool, but they're no where near as breathtaking and impressive as la Garganta del Diablo.

We took a return bus (good value and regular service) from the bus station to the Argentine Falls. Unfortunately we were unable to trek around the area as the walks were closed because Pumas had been spotted. The falls were accessed by a good train service from the entrance and there were cafes at reasonable prices dotted around. The walk... More

I have never felt so small in my life and so in awe of God's miracles. Of course there were big crowds so you have to keep moving but even if you just stand there and take it all in and mute everyone out, it's worth it! The guide that I was with told me stories of the people who... More

It's really really cool! You just have an idea about how massive it is when you see yourself beside it! If you have an opportunity you have to go! I don't give 5 stars cause for pictures, the best angles are from the Brazilian side but from the Argentinan side you get closer to this world wonder!

You cannot experience this incredible place without getting soaked. Deal with it. If you walk the entire length of bridgework to get there, then enjoy it. Umbrella? No. Slicker? Yes (for cowards). Pictures / video cannot capture what you will take away from this wonder of the world. If it matters, you will be dry in under an hour (depending... More
