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 is a MUST SEE in Argentina. The most impressive water fall anywhere in the world. The power and force of the "Devil's Throat" will make a lasting impression.

It's much better seen from the Argentinian side. You get to the park (take cash, they don't accept credit cards or even dollars!), take. 25-minute-train, get to 'miles' of foitbridges and finally arrive almost in the middle of the fall, on a belvedere. From the Brazilian side, you can take a boat and see from under. Well, as you are... More

Unforgettable and glorious view. Worth however much it costs in airfare and hassle to get here. It was hot and rained off and on the day we were there. Still one of the best days of my life!

You get an amazing view of the falls on the Brazilian side. Very close to this Falls. The Argentina side is closer to more of the falls, but for Garganta Del Diablo, a quite different view from the top. 30% of the Iguazu river goes over this falls.

We did first the Brazilian side and the next day Argentinian. The Brazilian side was a bit less crowded although still - crowded. The view was awesome. After struggling with the crowd we made it to the rim of the pathway at the garganta on the Argentinian side. The view is truly more impressive than on the Brazilian side. But... More

Don't miss this part of the park. A wonder by definition. Lots of falls in a single location. Long walk, but was worth every step.

Too expensive, too much time, too long rides and walks. Many sellers and scammers in the way, *sight.... Just... no. If it's empty, cloudy, raining, not high season, and you can go and back with transfer, do it. Otherwise save yourself
