Overview

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.

Go early so you can board the first train (8.30) and you can also avoid too many tourists. The falls are simply overwhelming. Good visible from the platforms.

We visited the Argentinian mirador of the Garganta del Diablo first thing in the morning. It is certainly worth the walk. Hint: walk instead of taking the train to the viewpoint. It is almost as fast and not so crowded.

As Eleanor Roosevelt said "Poor poor Niagra", or something along those lines. She was spot on! A must see.

Amazing nature, I went there April 2014. You should spend 2-3 days there to absorb it all. Try the boats, but know that it can be cold.

Watching this heaving mass of water flow over the falls from the walkway on the Argentinian side of the falls is truly awesome.

This part of the park is definitely worth the walk (we figured more than 1.5 miles round trip). Here you are "up close and personal" with the water coming over the brink(s)--there are several "pour offs". I was more impressed by the Devil's Throat than...More

Go early in the morning to avoid the crowds...we were on the first train out to the boardwalk for our first view of Iguazu. It was stunning, and the volume of water going over Devils Throat is stunning.

Iguazu falls are spectacular! We spent the whole day at the park. First did the upper circuit, then the Iguazu Jungle cruise, and finally took the train to the lower circuit and walked to Garganta Diablo. Nothing prepares you for the size of the falls...More
