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.

If your heart is completely healthy, no chance of a heart attack, then you should go to the Argentinian side of the Iguazu Waterfalls to become astonished at the sight of the Brazilian side of the waterfalls

The Grandeur of Mother Nature is beyond words. Niagara Falls is a drop in the bucket compared to Iguazu. The train ride and catwalk to the edge of the falls is an absolute must. You will spend and entire day on the Argentinian Park alone. Be prepared to get wet, there is a reason it's called the rainforest...

If you want to see something truly amazing that is an absolute wonder of the world this is something to see- having lived near Niagara Falls, Canada most of my life the thought of a waterfall didn't seem that exciting but then I came to the Garganta del Diablo and I was left speechless! The Iguassu Falls and The Garganta... More

The power of nature is self evident at the largest of the 200 plus waterfalls that form Iguazu. The sheer volume of water that thunders over the basalt rock precipice is breathtaking. Do not hesitate to take the boat trip into the Falls, certainly an experience that will long be remembered.

10 out of 10 for a fabulous place. Well done for looking after it so well. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get around and expect nothing from the restaurants and you won't be disappointed

Awesome highlight of the park. You have to get on the train from the intermediate station. They have 2 trains going back and forth to the devils throat at 15 minute intervals. If the lines are too long you can also walk on the maintenance road that runs parallel to the tracks. At a brisk pace it takes 25 minutes... More

Impressive to see but this is true for all of Iguazu falls. If you visit Iguazu falls for sure don't miss this stop!

It is an awsome experience, it is nature at its best. I visited Rio de Janeiro, Iguazu Falls, Buenos Aires and Santiago Chile with Gate 1, an unforgettable experience.
