Iguazu Falls: Garganta del Diablo

The last and the most spectacular thing that we saw today, on the Argentinean side of Iguazu Falls, was the Garganta del Diablo (lit: "Devil's Throat"), the biggest waterfall in the national park, and an absolutely, unbelievably, mind-blowingly massive stream of water. Do yourself a favour, and save this baby for the end of the day: it doesn't get much better than this. You could stand and stare at it for hours. We did. And the catwalk takes you right to the edge of it, where you have a simply phenomenal view of the thing cascading down all around and below you. Enjoy the photos below.

Garganta del Diablo: its f$%#ing huge.

There’s so much mist, you can’t even come close to actually seeing the bottom.

They really do like naming their waterfalls “Something del Diablo” down here in South America. I guess it adds a bit of dramatic effect, eh?

More arty farty: black-and-white this time.

After ye 'ol Garganta, that was about it for the day, at Iguazu. We got the little choo-choo train back to the park entrance, where we were both hungry and in need of some serious time-killing (a very good combination). We addressed these pressing issues, by sitting down at one of the cafés in the park, and devouring a massive pepperoni pizza between the six of us. After that, it was back on our little tour bus, to shuttle us back to the Hostel Inn, and we were done for the day. Very exhausting, but also quite dazzling!
