About
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.

It is a wonder of nature and the most impressive spot in one of the most unique landscapes. It comes at the end of a 30-minute walk on a flat walkway from the train station, which you will have reached after a 20-minute ride on a toy train from the park entrance. We went in summer and needed sun protection and sunglasses. We got wet when we reached the end point due to the potency of the fall that creates a dense clouds of vapor. It was refreshing due to the heat (35 Celsius and 90% humidity). You can see birds around the waterfall. Be prepared for a busy walk, there are a lot of people and need to be patient to wait for your turn to take pictures in the best spots.

The guy in my hotel said to visit the Devil’s throat in the afternoon because the sunrise come from the falls’ side and it will be against the light in photos. I didn’t listen and went there first thing in the morning. Lo and behold what he said was true. It was still beautiful nevertheless. And coming back to see it in the afternoon was worth it!

Amazing. The amount of water going over this area is "wow", especially since you can get so close.
It is quite a walk on the boardwalk to get there , and it was very crowded at the viewing point, but the crowd moves - so be patient. We did the Argentnia side the first day and Brazil side the second day. I think we did it the "proper" way. If you do both I think you will "get it".
The weather was very hot and humid, and it cancan at any time ( at least in the summer). Clouds were building as we were finishing up for the day. We did everything and were there about 6 hours. Lots and lots of walking - but well worth it. We had a guide and I know that made things smoother for us.

If you are already going to the parque you absolutely must go to the main attraction! If you walk instead of ride the train (long line) it will take 25-40 min depending on how fast you walk and it's hot and the trail is mostly gravel.once at the platform take the long walkway out and then be prepared to get damp! Totally worth any effort to get here, this is definitely the highlight of the park and no matter how crowded it is, being that close to these massive falls is still a really cool experience.
*domt forget to go to the Brazil side to see them from across! The view from there is as good as being close up*

If you only experience one viewpoint of Iguazu Falls (and why would you), this one would have to be it. Devil’s Throat is breathtaking (literally). The roar of the falls, combined with the cool mist and gushing flows of whitewater, send you into an otherworldly setting.

It can get very, very crowded, so make sure you come at non-peak times of both the day and the year. Bring comfy shoes for walking almost a mile from the national park’s train station across the boardwalk to the overlook. The walk is worth it. I’ll do it again and again!

Highly, highly recommended.

The experience is breathtaking, but be aware you will get soaked. If your visit is in summer ( december/January) it is so hot that you will apreciate getting wet, but you will dry on your walk back. If not you should take a rain poncho just in case.
Try to do the tour on your own or with a small group. We had a bad experience with Cuenca del Plata Tours

This is an easily accessed wonder of the world. Don’t miss it. To be able to observe it so close is awesome. It is crowded for sure on each of the balconies but the photo takers were great about moving on to let others in. Great experience.

It truly is a sight to behold, even though it is a little touristy. Go either early in the morning or in the late afternoon to avoid the crowds. You may not have the platform to yourself, but you'll be able to move around and get some photos without others in it.

Breathtaking waterfalls well worth the trip. A bit of a walk but you c an take it steadily. Can be seen from several places, get the early train from the park entrance to get good views without the crowds

This is without a doubt one of the wonders of our world today. Stay at Belmont la Caratas hotel and you can see the falls several hours before the crowds com. Actually from tour room. We saw toucans, a snake, deer,over 30 acosta or raccoon type animal.
Even if handicapped in wheelchair there are elevators to get your clear under the mist and get soaked. You just miss the trail walk. I even thanked God for such a masterpiece for us to enjoy.
