Devil's Throat

Devil's Throat

It is your obligation, your promise, your responsibility towards, us when you go to the Falls, to go to the “Devil's Throat”. It is the largest jump in the Iguassu Falls, 150 meters wide and 80 meters high. If you go along the trails, you cannot miss the Devil's Throat. But if it's such a special place, why that name? It is a reference to the legend of the Falls. In short, it is said that for many years the Indigenous people who inhabited the region believed in a snake-shaped God. The chief's daughter, named Naipi, was considered the most beautiful of all women and her beauty was capable of stopping the waters of the Iguaçu River. To prove his devotion and faithfulness, Cacique, Naipi's father, offered her to God M'boy. In the meantime, the girl meets a young warrior named Tarobá. They fell in love, but upon learning of the Cacique's offering, they fled across the river in a canoe. When God M'boy realized what was happening, he furiously opened huge cracks in the earth, which originated the Falls. Legend has it that Naipi has turned into a central rock in the Falls and Tarobá into a palm tree that stands at the edge of an abyss near Naipi and a rainbow connects the two. The Devil's Throat takes its name because, according to legend, it is the exact place where God M'boy watches to this day Naipi and Tarobá.
