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 you are in Argentina, Iguazu National Park should be in top of your visit list for its "Garganta del Diablo" aka "The Devil's Throat", the widest waterfall in the world. One look at this, you will be stunned and impressed by the sheer display of Nature's Power and Glory. The way the whole park is setup is quite impressive... More

We visited the Falls and took the small tour train back to the throat of the devil. Its not to be missed if you are touring the Falls. There is a relatively long hike back to the top of the falls along a metal walk way, but it is worth the walk. The view from the top of this awesome... More

I been there some days ago and honestly, it is truly one of the best 7 Natural Wonders of the World. The noise, the powerful fall roaring in front of you is difficult to describe. You have to be there and will understand!!

The national park where the falls are located is fairly well organized with signposts. The signs need to be improved a little but fairly easy to follow. The falls are beautiful from all locations.

Very busy but expected as it was an event of a lifetime.Expect lines to take train to the falls area. Even for the winter time the jungle is very warm and humid. But it is a jungle. Spectacular view.

We visited Iguazu falls on 2014. We have been lucky enough to arrive in a full moon night, so we met the Garganta del Diablo (the throat of the devil) at mid-night, in a tour under the moon light. You walk on the wooden bridges over the waters and from far away you can start hearing the humble of the... More

Garganta del Diablo is certainly the most dramatic part of the falls, but I found seeing the falls from both Brazil and Argentina made the experience more meaningful. The falls are more diverse and unique than any other I have seen.
