Attraction details
Type: Waterfalls, Nature & Parks
Owner description: 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.

A great way to define it is as impressive. The amount of water let us staring at it for hours. I totally recommend this trip and also taking the boat as near as possible from the Garganta del Diablo.

Eight years ago, we visited Iguazu spending 2 full days in January at the Falls, both Brazilian and Argentinian. The sights, sounds, and weather throughout this period combined to make them the most ravishing 2 days in our travel experience to that point, since when they have not been surpassed. This January (2015), we flew from BA to spend 2... More

We visited the Devil's throat from both Brazilian and Argentinian sides. The first one is more relaxed and easy to access the second one is more adventurous, both highly recommended. This section is the highlight of both trips and the most photographed part of the falls. In both parks my recommendation is to start here, especially in Argentina as the... More

It's very hard to get good, dry photos here because the force of the water falls are so strong that the splash back feels just like rain. Bring a rain coat and a water proof camera so you don't have to angst about your camera dying from the water (like my father's did.) But boy is it worth a visit... More

There are 3 trails to the falls - two which are handicapped accessible and free wheelchairs are also provided. The lower trail is the most difficult. If you stay at the wonderful Sheraton hotel in the park you can start hiking at 8 am a good hour before everyone else on day trips can catch up with you so there... More

We visited recently and there was so much water going over the falls. It was fantastic from both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides and one of the best natural wonders we have ever seen. Will never forget the power of the water, the thunderous noise it makes and the mist rising above the lower falls. The force of the water... More

Don't miss this view! While you are already traversing all over Iguazu, make sure you take the train up to Devil's Throat to look down over the falls from above. This is the view with the rainbow almost everyday there is sunshine. You can get your photo take by a professional for a fee, don't know how much it was.... More

Maintenance of the walkways is to blame - we could not get to it because the path was unavailable. Having been there on a previous visit, we told our friends in advance, and they were doubly disappointed.

I have been to niagara falls in Canada and I have to admit that Iguazú falls are much nicer. Firstly the falls are in the middle of a natural Park. So it does no look as commercial as in niagara. Secondly there is much more things to see in the park in top of the falls It is a bit... More

Seeing the power of the water cascading down was amazing!! Go see it for yourself! Easy access once in the park, walkable, but there is a train, as well. Take the boat ride and drive through the jungle - it was great!!
