The most powerful waterfall in the natural cascade of Iguazu is called the Devil's Throat.
How to look into the Devil's Throat in Iguazu
Local old-timers believe that the Devil's Throat was created by the god of the Iguazu River, when he was angry with a young girl who escaped from the sacrifice - he brought down the river, and the boat with the girl fell into the abyss. But geologists assume that the waterfall was formed after the eruption of the volcano 150 million years ago.

The height of the waterfall is almost 90 meters, and water flows at a speed of 750 meters per second - faster than Niagara (5800 meters per second)! The roar of falling water is heard a few kilometers away, and the spray reaches the suspension bridges to a height of 100 meters.
