Attraction details
Type: Waterfalls, Outdoors
Owner description: 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.

This was just unbelievable. The raw power, the beauty, the scale of the place. Makes one feel very insignificant and humble in the face of it. One of my lasting memories of Sur America

The Garganta del Diablo is NOT OPEN. It will not be open until end of December. However, there is still a lot to do without the grand finale. Overall, it was a great experience. If you want to see the Garganta, you have to go to the Brazilian side which means you have to pay a visa fee. It is... More

Once we got to iguazu falls in the Argentinian side we went straight to Garganta del Diablo. And wow! Where we surprised. It was so much more than I anticipated, it was completely breathtaking. And just so you have an idea, we went back to continue visiting the park, but before we left and the end of the day, we... More

This is the part of the falls that has to be seen to be believed. Everything up until this point was WOW, AMAZING, INCREDIBLE...and this part trumps it all.

At present the access to it is closed due to repairing works. You get to this point by the EcoTrain you take in the park. It is the last stop. There are signs telling you if the access is closed or not. If you get to it, the view is awesome.

Went to the falls today, looking forward to the Garganta del Diablo experience. However my sister and I were disappointed to find that the walkway going out to the Devil's Throat was closed. We have since read reviews to say that certain trails are closed but there does not seem to be any official news of the closures. Very disappointed... More

Torrential rains in Brazil along the winter have caused Iguaçu River to almost triple its load, and that ended up literally washing away the bridge towards Devil's Throat, which means it's not going to be possible to get there in the coming 6 months or so!
