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

you ride almost directly into the falls - scary and really incredible. don´t miss this boat ride you´ll regret! protect you camera well from all the mist + water (very high humidity as one could imagine) - it is essential if you wanna use the camera again! surely you´ll get soaked.

If you go to the park this is a must-see. I would recommend getting there early because it definitely gets crowded. You will get wet, but you're in the rainforest! You'll dry. I have a special attachment to this part of the park because my boyfriend proposed to me here :) Traveled April 2014.

You will get wet, but it's worth it. Surrounded by water, on a walkway over the river, you experience the true force of nature.

Garaganta del Diablo (Devil's Throat) is the most intense part of the much larger Iguazu Falls. We began our visit to the Argentinian side at Garaganta del Diablo. The national park train gets you close and then a half mile walk on metal catwalks about 6 feet above the river level gets you to the Devil's Throat. The observation area... More

Much better from the Argentinan side. Unforgetable and impressive. Sublime rather than beautiful. Touristy but the water makes you ignore everything else.

We did La Garganta del Diablo as part of our Iguazu tour. What a amazing view. Nature has been generous with this section of the world.

When visiting the falls, the walk to Garganta del Diablo is a must. To experience the massive falls up close and personal, there is nothing else like it. Don't skip this path.

My title says it all. I have never felt such reverence with nature. It is simply a must for anyone, just stay quiet and be amazed by nature.
