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.

Who ever designed the railroad in the park needed to move it closer to the falls. We did the lower(to get to boat) and part of upper trail. Very hard walking and at 70, had a hard time, developed some nasty blisters on feet and was beat at the end of day. Railroad could have been designed a lot closer.... More

Wonderful even trails lead to the scenic lookout for Garganta del Diablo, the most impressive waterfall at Iguazzu Falls. After the train ride, take your time to enjoy sights along the trail. From the bridges, watch for catfish, alligators and other aquatic animals. Coatis may pop up anywhere.

This was a shocking experience! We visited "Devil's Throat" (what a name) in a devilishly rainy day and walked all the way to this spot to witness the most outrageous flow of water one could possibly see! A life-time experience!

No one can believe you when you tell them how large this waterfall is and how much water actually goes over it. This makes Niagara Falls seem like a dripping faucet. This should be on everyone's bucket list to see. If you don't like hot steamy weather and large crowds, I recommend going in November of May.

Walk to the top circuit can be hot in the heat, but plenty of birds/turtles, coyotes etc to see and the view of the falls is stunning.

The park is well organized with paved walkways and signage. There are several falls to see and experience, each one more spectacular than the last. The viewpoints are up close and personal.

What can you say about the widest series of falls in the world? The guides are fantastic. We took the train to the Devils Throat then walked the middle trail. After lunch head to the boat for a drenching under the San Martin falls. An experience not to be missed. You can wander around yourself and just book the boat... More

The Devil's Throat is the most concentrated flow of water at this amazing place. We took the boat ride and were thoroughly drenched by the spray

Iguazu National Park has many delights. The Garganta del Diablo is not one of them. This is the most crowded and least pleasant site in the park. There is little to see. It is only accessible by train. The upper and lower circuits and the path to the Island are all much more interesting. Somehow this is considered the "must... More

This series of falls are just stunning. Various walkways to see the levels and many falls. Do the Jungle Explorer last and end of visit as includes boat trip into the falls and just expect to get drenched and come out laughing and happy. It is warm as tropical which helps.
