Devil's Throat

The roar is deafening. The wind shifts and a new sheet of mist covers me and my camera. I am standing above Devil's Throat and it feels like one wrong step might send me straight to hell.

It's easy to see why it's called Devil's throat. The 250 ft drop separates the upper and lower Iguazu Rivers along the border of Brazil and Argentina is not something you want to take a ride down. But it is something you want to see.

Viewed from the Argentina side, you are able to take a series of metal catwalks over the wide river and eventually you will hear the roar coming out of seemed to be a pleasant little river.

Take a camera but make sure you take a plastic bag or casing to protect it when the wind shifts and covers you in spray which happens quite often.

National park entry ticket required - 130 pesos.

I just went there last week. Absolutely AMAZING!! I was speechless, and I have to confess I almost cry by witnessing this natural wonder. Definitely worth every cent spent to get there, and couldn't agree more with Alfonso Ricciutto's sonnet:
"Let your soul be sated
with the odd beauty of this landscape
that although you wander the world in your travels
you'll never find, like this, nothing”
