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

Una falla geologica producida en el cauce del rio Parana hizo que la desembocadura del rio Iguazu quedara convertida en una abrupta cascada de 80 metros de altura. Desde aquel punto, donde se originaron las Cataratas, hasta donde hoy en dia se encuentra la Garganta del Diablo existen 27 kilometros de distancia, debido al retroceso lento erosivo, pero continuo en la posicion de las Cataratas. Esta gran cascada original, se ha convertido en dos grandes arcos sinuosos de 2700 metros de extension. Siendo el salto mas imponente del conjunto, la Garganta del Diablo, de 80 metros de altura, se encuentra en el curso principal del rio. Segun el rio, posea mas o menos caudal se pueden admirar entre 160 y 260 saltos, que en terminos medios serian unos 1500 metros cubicos de agua por segundo. La violencia de la caida produce una niebla permanente, en la cual los rayos solares conforman multiples arco iris de insuperable belleza. « less
