Description: This wonder of nature permits the observation of one of the most unique...
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.

Perfect place to feel nature. I have never seen such a thing in my lifetime, and will never see something like this in the rest of my life.

Unbelievable view and experience. The temperature was nearly 40C but once you walk to the Devil's Throat you get wet by the drizzle that surrounds the fall and shines as rainbows in the sun. Unmissable.

This NEEDS to be on your "bucket list"! The viewing deck allows one to get right above the devil's throat where you can literally feel the power of the falls. The Argentine side isn't run as professionally as the Brazilian side but can nonetheless be navigated fairly painlessly. A couple of short train rides followed by a few beautiful walkway... More

The "Garganta do Diabo" (Devil's Throat) is amazing, unmissable, but, the argentinean organization of the attraction is very poor. People do not respect lines (specially brazilians and argentineans), the interval between the trains that takes you to the path of the attraction is too long. There is no enough guides and orientation. The staff is not polite or friendly.

You have to walk about 3 kms. but it woth every inch you move. When you arrive to de Garganta del Diablo you will feel the irresisteble power of nature. Unforgettable experience even walking with a 2 years old little guy that wants to be loaded all the time :D

It is this real???.. This is one of the MUST VISIT places in the world. You have to walk a lot, but the final view of the fall is just mind blowing.

Wow! Amazing. Worth the walk. Feels like you are actually in a boiling caldron of water. This is much more up close and personal than Niagra Falls. You would never be allowed to get this close to any national park attraction in the USA, let alone something as powerful and potentially dangerous as these falls. As it churns away underneath,...

The train, the people, the landscape, the maintenance in general. It's just breathtaking My 9 year old son cried all the time he spent in front of it, thanking me for having taken him there. For me.... it's just priceless
