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.

Thundering waterfalls amidst the rain forest with tropical birds and animals nearby. Iguazu Falls is truly wonderful!

It's great to see it up close, and it's well worth getting wet! If you want to stay dry, take your poncho or raincoat.

This is a truly stunning place. I would recommend a guided walk so you can get a better understanding of the geography and flora and fauna. There are plenty of facilities so a great day out for all ages.

If you want to see the falls from afar, go to the brazilian side. If you want to "live" the falls go to the argentinean side. And prepare yourself to be amazed. I've read lots of reviews but they all fall short trying to describe this place. It will leave you with your mouth open. It is so hard to... More

Almost certainly the best thing I have ever seen and I'd have to think likely to be the best thing I ever will see, in my opinion. Both sides are great but if I had to pick I'd say the Brazil side is best as you see a lot more.
