Things to do in Iguazu Falls

Full Moon Walks

During a full moon (about five days a month) the park opens for guided moonlit viewings of the Devil’s Throat. The jungle’s nightlife can be almost as magical as the main attraction.

Garganta del Diablo (The Devil’s Throat)

As you approach, the almost-still Iguacu River belies the powerful sight ahead: a horseshoe of crashing water and billowing mist, accented by rainbows and sprightly vencejos (an endemic species of swift) darting about.
