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.

“Something especial”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

This part of the park is something especial, this is a beauty of nature, I enjoy every minute in the Garganta del Diablo, the only thing that bothers is that there are a lot of tourist, so is difficult to take a nice picture, but the long walk and everything is worth it when you see the waterfalls.

We got the two trains up to the falls. Very crowded changeover at half way. We were at the falls by 08-45. Seemed like half of the world was there at the changeover. We waited for 45 mins. We should have walked. The walkways around the falls are very well done.
We were mightily impressed by the whole experience.

“One of the world top cites for visit”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Garganta del Diablo looks from a balcony in Argentinian side as not only one of the wonders of the World. You can close your eyes and only hear the voice of that fall. Try to find good time for stay there without swarm of tourists. It's not so easy, but you will be rewarded. Only here it's possible to understand our Planet like a living creature. Billions tons of water waiting for their turn to throw down with a roar and came back as clouds, reins and slow moving river.
For good meeting, be ready to change your shoes and clothing. Camera could be damaged by moisture. Children must be ready for long walking.

“Throat of The Devil”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Well, what can I say? This is nature at its best, or worse, depending on whether you took the plunge and died. One cannot see the bottom for all of the mist rising from below. One can see Brazil on the other side. And, one can see the parade of swallows, who make their nests on the cliff face, and sail in the sky with the thundering cataracts beneath and below them.

“The best!”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Just be prepared for long walks. Good opportunity to buy Havana alfajores and argentinian sweaters before leaving the park.
