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.

Wow!

I found the Garganta del Diablo quite overwhelming - such power in the water. Not to be missed. Do all 3 walks and start at the bottom.

This is the center piece of the park. Take the boat ride.. but be ready to get soaked! The park is lovely and well organized.

This is the main reason for coming to Puerto Igauzu. I spent a day on the Argentinian side as well as a day on the BRazilian side. You could easily do both sides in half a day each... But why not take your time seeing as you've travelled this far?

This is on the Argentinian side. If you are driving from immigrations from Brazil, you literally stay in the same road and go straight for about 15 minutes until you see the "catarata" (waterfall) signs then turn left. There is parking which you will have to pay for at time of entrance. You will be walking if all you are... More

The Devil's Throat was amazing. We got wet but the sight was worth it. Along the way you could see butterflies, turtles and coaties. The water coming down was strong and powerful and much nicer than Niagara falls.

Minimum stay is three days First day walk the upper and lower walkways leisurely Second day take the minitrain to reach the walkway that takes you to Garganta del Diablo,(Devil´s Throat) unforgettable. Then walk in areas allowed in the jungle. Third day, visit the brazilian side of the falls. Impresive. Of course, there are many other options for a longer... More

Garganta Del Diablo is by far the highlight of the Iguazu falls park on the Argentinian side. The park has a few trails- green (nothing special), upper circuit (beautiful), lower circuit (even better), but nothing prepares you to the powerful breathtaking views of the Diablo. DO NOT MISS IT! Some tips before going- park admissions was 320 pesos per adult... More

The title says it all. Impressive from the top on the Argentinan side (better in the late afternoon, last train is at 16:10), still more from the bottom on the Brazilian side (better in the morning for the rainbow).

I'm a local tour guide from the area and there is no way better to see the Devil's Throat closer being in front of it. Some days people may get wet there in few seconds due the wind direction but anyway this is one of my favorite view points on the argentine side of the waterfalls. Many days we can... More
