Iguazu National Park, one of the most spectacular natural reserves in the world, is set to welcome visitors back to its iconic Devil’s Throat circuit on July 14. This long-awaited reopening marks the end of significant renovations aimed at enhancing the visitor experience while preserving the natural beauty of this breathtaking site.

About Devil’s Throat

The Devil’s Throat, or Garganta del Diablo, is the most impressive section of the Iguazu Falls, straddling the border between Argentina and Brazil. This U-shaped cascade boasts a height of 80 meters and a width of 150 meters, creating a thundering spectacle that captivates over a million visitors each year. The sheer volume and power of the water crashing down make it one of the most photographed and admired natural wonders on the planet.

Closure and Renovation Details

In November 2023, the Devil’s Throat circuit was closed due to severe damage to the walkway caused by a dramatic rise in water levels. This unexpected surge in water flow resulted in significant structural damage, necessitating immediate closure for repairs to ensure the safety of visitors.

The decision to renovate the Devil’s Throat circuit was driven by the need to restore and enhance the overall visitor experience. Over the last months, a dedicated team of workers has been meticulously repairing walkways, installing new viewing platforms, and implementing state-of-the-art safety measures. These improvements not only provide a more comfortable and secure visit but also offer new perspectives and vantage points to enjoy the falls.
