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.

The Iguazu Falls are stunningly beautiful & totally worth the trouble to get there. Both the Argentine & Brasilian sides of the falls should be viewed for the total experience.

An incredible sight, justifying 13 hours in a plane ... Awe-inspiring. Be prepared to get wet, rather a pleasant feeling on a hot day!

This is one stop on the Argentinian side of the falls. We were with a tour group that took the train from the entrance to the Cataras station and changed trains to get to The Devil's Throat. Be advised that it is still a long walk to the fall (probably a half mile to a km. each way) but it... More

You really should visit there!! Take a walk to Cataratas station first in the morning (NOT the central station!!). Be fast to be the first ones in the line, 'cos it is very crowded there all the time. Amazing wiev! After seeing Machu Picchu and Salar de Uyuni during our trip, the waterfalls still made a huge impression.

La Garganta del Diablo is both a terrifying and fascinating hypnotic place. It's a black hole where all the water of an entire river is swallowed. No wonder why it has that name.

We've done it all; Victoria Falls has height and beauty. Niagara Falls has beauty and power. Iguazu has volumes of beauty and power. The epicenter is the throat of the devil ...
