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. « less

I had seen it in movies, but nothing can do it justice. First take your time to walk and enjoy the scenery at the two top levels and then walk down the base to take the boar ride. DO NOT miss the boat ride. The falls are so immense and powerful that might scare you at first. But the ride... More

Displayed at its best, the walkways around the falls give you fantastic views from the Argentinian side and the Brazil side. Best if you can visit both sides. We spent a day on the A side which was wet and rainy, but you will get wet anyway, especially if you take the boat ride up to the falls. This is... More

On the Brazil side. no words will describe it. You must go see. The Brazil side has a short trail that walks you along the river and the other falls. There is a concrete walk out that puts you right next to falls. Be sure to take a rain poncho. At the very least please cover camera.

I just wanted to post an up to date post to confirm that the train and walkway to Garganta del Diablo is closed after being damaged in severe flooding earlier this year. If you are planning you trip specifically to see this impressive element of the falls then maybe hold off...we had booked our trip well before the flooding and... More

There are not enough superlatives to describe the falls. We went to both sides and both are worth it. After going on one of the longer walks we went to the flash hotel that overlooks the falls and had pisco sours; a must do activity. I'm going to visit again as two days there wasn't enough. Watch out for the... More

It can be a long trek for anyone going either the upper or lower part of this attraction, particularly if you missed the train . It can be really hot, and more often than not, you have to deal with the big crowds on a consistent basis. But once you reach your destination , the views simply take your breath... More

I am so glad that we went here. This has been one of the most amazing sights I have ever seen. We saw both sides, the Argentinan side is more in depth as far as different trails to get up close to the falls and view from above and below. On the lower trail you will get wet and if... More

Not to be missed, especially under a full moon when you can take the special night tour. Just take your foul weather gear. You may get wet!
