Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Crowds are really big here since its such a cool place, however there is a way around em. When u get off the train make a break for it. You must be ahead of all the crowds. Or ot will take ages to walk there. then go again in the evening when everyone is headed out of the park. The thing is, that the park was built with these silly narrow walkways so anyone with a cooler and stroller blocks the way. So it takes 1/10the time to walk there in the evening when no one is there.

The noise, the spray, the sights - a treat for all the senses. Who cares about getting wet and having to walk some distance - DO NOT MISS

“Awesome !!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Having been previously to Nagara falls we were "blown away" by these falls. They must be one of the wonders of the world. Words cannot describe their beauty and shere length at over 2.5 kilometers they are the longest falls in the world.

“Fantastic sight”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Truly an awe-inspiring site, and not to be missed. We viewed from the Brazilian side one day and the Argentinian side the next. Both are well worth doing, but the Argentinian side gets you up close and personal with not only the Garganta del Diablo, but also many other impressive waterfalls. There is much to enjoy in the park as well, including the rainforest and wildlife. Both sides are well organised, and the walkways well constructed, such that you don't feel too overwhelmed by the large number of visitors.
