On nights with a full moon, visitors to the Iguaz˙ Falls may take a ride along the footbridge of Garganta del Diablo
(Devil┤s throat) and observe a dazzling and unique spectacle- a clear rainbow formed by the moonlight leaning on the refreshing mist of the Iguazu Falls
Magic really starts when visitors get to the Iguaz˙ National Park
. After being welcomed by the National Parks Administration, they are led to the Devi┤ls Throat on the ecologic train.
During the journey, which lasts 20 minutes, the forest indulges them with its sounds and mysteries. Once the darkness of night covers the sky, many animals start looking for their food.
This special offer is a good proposal to obtain a new perspective of this Natural World Heritage.
There is a limited time to get to and exit from the 1,000-meter-long footbridge. However, it is enough to get enchanted by the unprecedented scene.
Standing in front of the Falls with the full moon added to the view is an unforgettable experience. The created atmosphere is extremely romantic. Many couples, hand in hand, seem to wish to merge into a unique self as they stand before this natural wonder.
Some other people stand alone, in silence; just beholding what is given to the senses, wondering, perhaps, what feelings may have arisen in Alvar N˙˝ez Cabeza de Vaca- discoverer of the Iguaz˙ Falls- when he found himself in front of this majestic profusion, in a night like that.
After a while, visitors leave the balcony to go to the bar of the station to have a natural juice or a caipirinha.
Bear in mind: In order to go on this tour, you must be aware of the Moon┤s phases and make reservations in advance in tourism agencies.
Hotels generally tell the tourist when the Moon is in this phase which can inspire the most daring poets.
Passengers must be at the station 45 minutes beforehand.
You are advised to take a raincoat, a torch and insects repeler.
