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.

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

Must do, amazing walk to Iguazu Falls. Get ready to be soaked by the mist. Wear comfortable shoes to walk a lot.

The only way to understand its magnitude is to visit it. Words can never describe it, just like the Gran Canyon.

Simply just one of the most amazing places I have ever been to. Beautiful. Do both the yellow lower trail and the blue upper trail before you catch the train to Devils Throat. Try and do the Argentinian side on a nice weather day.

What else can one say. It has to be one of the major sites of the world so there is not much more to say.

This fall is the biggest in Iguazu National Park! It’s gorgeous! You can stay there for hours! No picture will show you how majestic and powerful this place really is. One must live it in person to appreciate its beauty.

This waterfall is incredible. If you can - see it from both sides! You don't need to spend money on a raincoat / poncho on the Brazilian side, it's not that wet!

Ignore the people who said it doesn’t get windy. It all depends on what time of year and time of day you are visiting. When we went in January around midday it got fairly windy and lots of spray all over. This was on the... More
