Iguazu falls tour by moonlightIguazu Falls, straddling the Brazilian and Argentine borders to the north, are an awe-inspiring sight. 270 individual cascades, from serpentine streams to the mammoth Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat) loosely form an arc of plummeting water as the Rio Iguazu drops into the gorge. While the trip to the park was spectacular, including a boat ride that takes you directly into dump zone of a medium sized cascade, our full moon visit to The Devil’s Throat was even more impressive.

An ominous sign of what was to come in our Iguazu boat tour

Do you like to come back from your vacations with bragging rights? Then take this 15 USD tour and you will get more out of your Iguazu Falls experience than the average tourist. The Iguazu Falls are tucked away in the forest at the tri-border between Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay. When it comes to touring the falls, people’s loyalties lie in one of two camps – those who prefer the Brazilian side and those who prefer the Argentine side of the National Park. (Everyone agrees you experience nothing fall-related in Paraguay).

While the view of the Devil’s Throat at Iguazu may be more spectacular from the Brazilian platform reached by elevator, the Argentine side offers extensive foot bridges that pass under and above the lips of some of the giant drops. However, for 15 USD you can take an Iguazu boat ride that will allow you to thumb your nose at the visitors in both countries, as you motor right into the fury of the monstruous falls.

Down the Devil’s Throat – A trip to La Garganta del Diablo in Iguazu Falls Park


Iguazu Falls - La Garganta del Diablo waterfall.

The Throat of the Devil. At first thought, it may not sound like any sort of dream destination. Sounds a little dangerous, and probably very hot…Well I can’t argue with that, but if I went on to tell you that it was the name of one of the world’s largest waterfalls, would that change your perspective? La Garganta del Diablo is the biggest single falls within the biggest waterfalls reserve in the world Iguazu Falls – and it’s absolutely worth the risk.
