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.

View it from the platform below and get soaked by the spray from the Brazilian side or check out the platform above on the Argentine side, I recommend both! Iguazu Falls is breathtaking, probably the most amazing act of nature I have ever seen. Its a must on your bucketlist!

This is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and is absolutely a must to see from both the Argentine as well as the Brazilian sides. THe walk on the Argentine side is about 1100 meters and much less on the Brazilian side.

אחת החוויות העוצמתיות שבהן בקרתי ,כמות המים הנשפכים לתוך האגן היא עצומה ומיוחדת, המים היו קרים אבל לא ביטל את הנאה כשהסירה נכנסה בכל המהירות לתוך המפל , מומלץ בכל גיל . One of the amazing experiences that I visited, the amount of water pouring into the basin is immense and unique, water was cold but not canceled when the... More

fabulous, awe-inspiring, tourist-packed, soaking wet, glorious, powerful, beautiful waterfalls. ... and how would you feel if you were the one asked to build those observation platforms?!

Mother natures full force needs to be seen, there is no other way to explain this wonder. Can get wet, so plan in advance and take a poncho with you. Can get crowded so arrive early. We arrived there around 9am and it was fine.

This breathtaking. It's on the top long walk and is worth doing last so the other walks are not a disappointment. The length of the bridges to get to it are as jaw-dropping as the fall itself - nearly.

Outstanding, not to be missed. The videos and pictures that you may have seen are not even close to what you are going to experience by visiting "La Garganta del Diablo". Reasonable waiting times, excellent pathways and elevated viewing areas, in short this is going to be a "once in your lifetime experience". Come prepared to get "a little wet"... More

Just go. Don't ask questions. There aren't words to describe the majesty. Yes there are crowds. Yes it's far away from everything and seems like a huge trek to get there and back... but it is worth every penny, every hour on the bus, and you will NOT regret this experience. It's phenomenal.

You will not see a waterfall view like this elsewhere. First of all, there are not many falls like this, and, secondly, many of them are in places more worried about liability. Yes, you could leap off this walkway to your demise, easily. Control your kids. But you will have views you will remember forever. Bring a poncho or get... More

Breathtaking experience. Easy to get to from Puerto Iguassu using public bus. Park is very well signposted and laid out and the train gets you around from one area to the next.
