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.

Worth waiting in line for the train that goes at a snail's pace, or the long trek, this is one of the most phenomenal parts of the falls to stare at. The quantity of water is unimaginable, and the setting is incredible. A must see while you're here, but make sure to go in the afternoon for better lighting for... More

We took a taxi from downtown Foz Do Iguacu, Brazil, to Iguazu National park, Argentina. With bargain we got paid $R 90. Could go by bus and cost you for 2 people 5-6 times less, but you have to change the bus at Iguazu terminal and will get to the park in around 2 hours compare to taxi which is... More

You definitely want to take all the trails, but especially the Devil's throat one. You take a ride up on the train, walk a long bridge and see the massive amounts of water that just overflows at the Devil's throat. It's amazing to see! You will definitely get wet so bring a raincoat or buy a poncho.

A must see at the park. Make sure to plan as to not miss the last train out to the garganta. Breathtaking volumes of water.

Spent an incredible day at the Falls. Truly spectacular. Hire a private guide to take you through the Park. Highly recommend Maria - her English was perfect and she fit right in with our family. The day would not have been the same without her.

Standing on the edge of the platform was amazing. Looking around at the giant waterfalls reminds you of the power of nature. WOW

Don't miss this attraction. It's once in a lifetime. And do the Argentinian and Brazilian sides. Both are amazing and offer different aspects of the falls. Also, take the short helicopter ride. Very fun!

This is one of the best views I have seen on my travels. My advice is to make sure you are able to appreciate the view; everyone here was focusing on getting pictures and leaving once they had them. The more you look at the falls here, the more detail you will notice and get out of the trip. It... More

If paradise exist, this is must be a part of it. These incredible falls are by far the best in the worlds. The national park of iguazu is very well maintained with excellent infrastructure. The best side is the Argentina's one, you don't need any guide, and the full round trip including the boat trip need around 5hs. All signs... More
