  • Fantastic landscape and a great place to relax. The waterfall is easily accessible. May be an option for different ages.

  • Waterfall with a well, great for swimming, easy access with a very light trail. Ice water but that's just a detail. Super recommend lunch at the restaurant of the place with an incredible view.

  • The arrival to the restaurant which is the basis of access to this waterfall already offers a beautiful look of fall d ´ water. The small trail that leads to the waterfall offers the crossing of a river by a bridge that makes beautiful photos. Upon arriving in bath area we came across a large swath of sand that leads us to a beach and a large well, dark and deep water on most of the points, but also with shallow locations where children and people who can't swim, enjoy your site.
