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.

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

The Iguazu Falls is a spectacular spot on our planet. Being able to go under one of the 270 falls was better than any ride one could imagine at any amusement park...and this was for real, not fake. In 90+ weather, the water was refreshing, the view spectacular and the experience was thrilling.

I've been to over 80 countries and this is one of the top travel experiences. I really recommend visiting the falls on the Argentina side and the Brazil side, they have very different but wonderful experiences. The Brazil side gives an amazing panorama of the falls and you get to walk out on a boardwalk right into the center of... More

It was my second time in Cataratas and second time I saw Garganta del Diablo, but to see is not the correct verb, because you really feel it with all your senses and all your body. This second time I've been here, I knew what I was gonna see, I knew it was beautiful, but when I arrived.... wow! I... More

It is almost impossible to describe the enormity of this natural wonder. The unbelievable power of so much water gushing over the rock face from all sides, sending up spray through which birds fly and condors hover. What a place! If you've never been there, pack your bags and go!
