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. « less

The power of the falls just leaves you breathless. You will get wet but it's very welcome because of the heat. The huge groups of butterflies are really cool.

This enormous rush of water is fascinating and overpowering. You walk out on a wooden pier for a kilometre or so, over a quieter but still powerful river, cross the tail of a jungle island and then progress towards a rushing noise and great plume of what looks like steam. Finally you come to a platform looking from which you... More

This is the best scenery to the falls and an amazing walk to Garganta del Diablo. The most beautiful butterflies, turtles and wild alligator.

Iguassu was in flood while we were there so the walkway out to the Devil's Throat was closed on the Argentinian side as it had been washed away. The elevator on the Brazil side was open but pretty wild and wet! Such fun.

The Garganta could only be seen from the Brazilian side of the falls because the Argentinian side is closed due to floods in June. Now maybe I am too demanding, but is 2,5 months not enough to get that fixed? As your number one attraction I would have had all hands on deck to get this repaired asap. Big fail... More

Be prepared to get wet, wear clothes that are fast drying and bring rain gear. It was a lot more than we expected.
