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.

Absolutely amazing. Breathtaking. Take into account that the ticket entrance to the National Park can only be paid cash, and in pesos.

And that's how my story begins. I love water, but I also love trees and sometimes it can be hard to find the two in perfect tandem. That's where Iguazu Falls comes in. If you find serenity in watching thousands of tonnes of water fall a couple of hundred feet and then continue as if nothing happened then this is... More

Definitely worth the visit! If you only have one day to spend you can probably do both sides if you start early. If you can't start early or don't want a Brazilian visa the Argentian side is better in my opinion (but both are great). There are storage lockers on the AR side that will fit backpacks and smaller suitcases... More

It is amazing, although you can't get to it from the Brazilian side. We had been told to book the hotel on the Brazilian side but I disagreed with my Brazilian partner and booked the Sheraton - we had to pay the park toll and extra for the falls view but it is worth it. Simply opening the curtains and... More

Don't bother with a guide you can see everything by just walking and taking the excellent train service. The park is beautifully maintained and organised and this has to be one of the wonders of the world. Very exciting and beautiful.

Most amazing experience I've had in my travels up until now. I was overwhelmed by the beauty and majesty of these falls ( no really, I must have taken about 100+ photos so even for one who dabbles in amateur scenic photography it was excessive: couldn't help myself though ,every angle was beautiful). Really breathtaking and the boat ride into... More

Amazing extensive waterfalls that can be viewed from Brazil and Argentina. There are walkways that take you over and under the falls. You will get wet.
