Overview

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.

This fall is the biggest in Iguazu National Park! It’s gorgeous! You can stay there for hours! No picture will show you how majestic and powerful this place really is. One must live it in person to appreciate its beauty.

This waterfall is incredible. If you can - see it from both sides! You don't need to spend money on a raincoat / poncho on the Brazilian side, it's not that wet!

Summary: incredible park, superb infrastructure, easily accesible for baby strollers or wheelchairs. It’s a real wonder of the world. If you’ve been to Niagara Falls don’t think it’s like that, it’s way better and considerably more nature oriented. I went to visit the park during...More

Stunning experience with the falls. The Iguazu is a much wider, more spread out waterfall than the Niagara or the Victoria Falls, so while arguably more beautiful, perhaps seem less powerful than the other two, at least, at some places. The Garganta del Diabolo is...More
