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 have never seen such gigantic falls ! This is a unique experience for thousands of visitors. The short walk from the railway station to the falls takes you across a very wide river, with beautiful wildlife: birds of all kinds , a caiman , fish ..;

Unbelievable! The best natural site I have ever seen! Unreal power and majesty. Not much more to say except you really have to see it, to believe it.

There are not enough words to describe this place. One feels privileged to be able to witness such a wonder of nature. There is only one word to describe it, MAGNIFICENT and awe inspiring.

All of the falls in the park are beautiful, but this one seems powerful because you are so close. If you go later in the afternoon, the walk to El Diablo will be less crowded and more peaceful.

Best seen from the Argentinian side where you can look across to it, but it is a train trip inside the national park and a 1km walk across metal bridges to reach it. However once you get there it is amazing to see the volume of water that passes over it and to hear the thunderous noise. There is a... More

Did I say "wow?" Aside from being overcrowded and somewhat difficult to get the money shot without having to bump your way to the rail, the trek out to the falls after the train ride is spectacular. We did both sides of the falls. The Argentine side has more to do, but was more crowded. The Brazilian side had fewer... More

The noise is thunderous. The spray reaches out to dampen you but you will be amazed at the power of the water as it thunders down. Words really cannot do justice to this place

A long trek to get there put worth the walk. The shear power of the water and the sound is truly amazing.
