The famous La Garganta del Diablo or Devil’s Throat waterfall shall be closed until August due to flood damage and the need to conduct repairs to the walkway and viewing platforms.
After a recent aerial survey, the engineers responsible for maintaining the walkways and viewing platforms at Iguazu Falls said it would need a month to replace the damaged metal sections. Thankfully none of the concrete pillars that support the walkways have been damaged, so repairs will be relatively minimal.
Work will begin once the river flow returns to normal levels that will allow work within the area.
Once the river flow levels have returned to normal, it is expected that the rest of the Iguazu Falls park will reopen to tourists with only the Devil’s Throat area remaining shut until repairs are made.
