  • Everything I say here does not describe what is the enchanted well. It's enchanting! Is a freshwater Beach, my favorite cachu in the world! You can still order know lunch in the restaurant at the top and have there all kinds of consumption to get through the day without worrying.

  • Visit Alto Paraíso on the last weekend of January/18 and we chose places easily accessible by the fact of being with child of 5 years. The enchanted well was a pleasant surprise, very beautiful! There's a little beach that pleases kids and adults because there are varying depth for swimming. The trail is easy to access, but there's a bridge that can be uncomfortable for some. Anyway, it was no problem for us that we had a good time at the crossing. So, like most of the waterfalls, is charged a fee of R $20.00 to enjoy the waterfall/local structure. There is a restaurant that sells meals, drinks and snacks. If you choose to have lunch there, must order it when I get there. Do not accept credit cards, only cash. Children do not pay

  • The waterfall is beautiful, as well as easy access. Some 200 meters is enough to get to the sand at the base of the prainha, waterfall. There is a restaurant on the edge of the highway. If lunch in the waterfall it is advisable to ask for the dish on arrival and schedule an appointment for return. I took the kids and I had no problems with the short walk. It's worth it.
