About
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.

It's amazing to get up so close and personal to such a powerful force of nature. We did get wet here but not drenched. We got the first train of the day and managed to beat a lot of the tour groups so it wasn't too busy but does get very crowded.

The good news is that the Garganta del Diablo (Devil's Throat) is open again - it reopened on 1st March 2023.

We got one of the first trains there and that would be by advice as it gets very busy in the afternoons.

You have to walk around 5-10 mins to get to it - it's a flat walkway. The sight that greets you is astonishing - so much water power!

Not to be missed!!

This is without a doubt one of the wonders of our world today. Stay at Belmont la Caratas hotel and you can see the falls several hours before the crowds com. Actually from tour room. We saw toucans, a snake, deer,over 30 acosta or raccoon type animal.
Even if handicapped in wheelchair there are elevators to get your clear under the mist and get soaked. You just miss the trail walk. I even thanked God for such a masterpiece for us to enjoy.

most beautiful place on the planet. The people of Puerto Igauzu definitely take pride and take care of this park. The park is well planned with plenty of hiking trails that are accessible, food is available at convenience, and there are many maps to help guide oneself. I think this is the best waterfall on Earth right now.

Once in a lifetime experience. The falls and the paths into the falls are incredible. We also saw several toucans and an alligator. A highlight of our trip to Argentina.

If you only experience one viewpoint of Iguazu Falls (and why would you), this one would have to be it. Devil’s Throat is breathtaking (literally). The roar of the falls, combined with the cool mist and gushing flows of whitewater, send you into an otherworldly setting.

It can get very, very crowded, so make sure you come at non-peak times of both the day and the year. Bring comfy shoes for walking almost a mile from the national park’s train station across the boardwalk to the overlook. The walk is worth it. I’ll do it again and again!

Highly, highly recommended.
