Holidays in Devil's Throat

Holiday Travel Guide
Devil\'s Throat which includes views, a cascade and landscape views

Admire the thundering water of the largest and most spectacular waterfall of Iguaçu Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Devil’s Throat is the largest of about 275 waterfalls making up Iguaçu Falls. At approximately 262 feet (80 meters) high and with constantly rushing water, Devil’s Throat is the highlight of a visit to Iguaçu Falls. The waterfall marks the border between Brazil and Argentina.

Catch a shuttle bus from the entrance of Parque Nacional do Iguaçu to the boardwalk trail, Path of the Falls. The trail leads to viewing platforms on three different levels, offering magnificent views of the front of Devil’s Throat, with water boiling over the rim and hurtling to the river below. Elevators travel to the highest viewpoint. The platforms offer great photography vantage points, especially when sun and mist combine to create rainbows.

Alternatively, experience this huge waterfall on a speedboat tour. Rocks prevent going all the way to the waterfall but you’ll get close enough to witness its power. Keep your camera and valuable items protected since getting wet is a certainty.

To fully appreciate the magnitude of Devil’s Throat, observe it from the Argentine side of Iguaçu Falls too. Here you can catch a train to the start of the Paseo Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat Trail). The path leads to a lookout and a close-up, top-down view of the waterfall. Marvel as the water rushes down into the river below and creates clouds of mist.

Located in Parque Nacional do Iguaçu, Devil’s Throat is a 20-minute drive from Foz do Iguaçu’s city center. Regular public buses travel between the city center and national park. If you drive, use the pay-and-display parking at the park’s entrance. To get to the Argentine side you’ll need to travel by bus from Foz do Iguaçu’s bus terminal; remember to bring your passport. Many hotels also operate day tours from Foz do Iguaçu to the Argentine side of Iguaçu Falls.

You can visit Devil’s Throat during the hours of Parque Nacional do Iguaçu, which is open daily. Check the park’s official website for complete opening hours and admission fees. Separate admission fees are charged on the Brazilian and Argentine sides of the falls.

"The prime reason to stay here is because guests have exclusive access to the Brazilian side of the falls in the late afternoon until about 10:00 am each morning. It's expensive, but worth it for the exclusive access."
