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.

El Diablo is the most powerful waterfall in Iguazu and the best place and closes place to see the power of the falls. Get on the first train headed to the observatory when the park opens at 0800.

The place is amazing! You are surrounded by falling water, the mist and the noise of it all. You can get rain coats before you enter the place if you want but most of the folks just go there. Totally worth it :)

Taking the walking tour around the falls is a definite must. It is not strenuous so anyone can do it.

Started by visiting the Brazilian side of the Iguacu falls which is a truly amazing experience which made us craving more of the amazing place so we arrived early morning at the Argentinian park with sky high expectations and even then this place was better than expected. Be prepared to walk quite a lot throughout the day as every single... More

This set of waterfalls was remarkable. It was a sight not to be missed and well worth the effort of taking the time to visit. There was a train that took us up to the top of the falls and then a walkway which we followed which had it's own set of beautiful views to look at.

Fantastic view when we were there, in a mist of spray and whirling winds that destroyed our umbrella. Photos didn't come out so well either from the end of the very long path at the top. The boat ride was great though, very exciting; expensive but you only live once.

The visit to the falls had been on our ,, to do list '' since many years. The brasilian side had been already breathtaking and we were looking forward to the Argentine experience. This turned out to be a disappointment. After having to wait for more than 1 hour for the first leg of the extremely slow moving train ride... More
