  • I have visited the enchanted well in various periods of the year, and is always beautiful! The infrastructure is a very good reception and cafeteria, restaurant and accessible toilets. Access to the waterfall is a little steep, but nothing hard, and the wooden bridge for tourists (which crosses the river of souls) gives an air of adventure on the trail to the falls. Valley to shame! Family inclusive!

  • For those who do not like to do track and stop the car practically next to the waterfall, the enchanted well is the best option. Lots of space with sand and shade to tourists, a huge pit where everyone can swim, a very beautiful waterfall. However by the easy access it gets too full, don't nominate for anyone who wants quiet.

  • Is a river beach, with a beautiful waterfall in the background. Fish share the bathroom with the tourists, which leads to believe that the water is clean. Very good place for children to play, although there are parts of the pit with 8 meters deep. There's a life preserver. Easily accessible location, just 200 metres walk, which includes stairs and a bridge pêncil. Before going down the track, it is possible to order the lunch. Food very good, but a little pricey. Downside: only takes cash. Nothing more. And they didn't warn you. You pretty much know it's time to collect, which generates an embarrassment.
