Boca da Onca Falls, Bodoquena

Eleven waterfalls with three stops for swimming and a chance to rappel make the Boca da Onca Falls a must see for the nature lover in you. You'll climb up 800 stairs to the top of waterfalls that descend like veils over the craggy rocks. Once there, you will rappel in a pair over the ledge down 90 m (295 ft) into a gorge. This is a good option for a beginner to the outdoors, as you will be guided through the area by a trained professional and a maintained wooden walkway make up the trail. Before arriving, brush up on your Portuguese because not all the guides speak English. However, language skill won't be needed around the delicious meal they will lay before you at the end of your tour.

  • The ride in the mouth of the Jaguar is very worthwhile! It's a 4 km trail with several stops for contemplation of waterfalls and trees of the region, in addition to enter of fact to swim in 4 waterfalls. The place also serves lunch.

  • The waterfalls are beautiful, especially the boca da onça. Due to the rains, few waterfalls were to enter. The famous hole in the monkey unfortunately was closed, only to get up. Other smaller waterfalls were also closed. Nevertheless gave it to enjoy the view. The waters were not so clear, but it was nice anyway. 886 staircase stairs can be very difficult for the elderly or for those who have some physical limitation. Good lunch.

  • Although some points for bath were closed due to recent rains, the attraction is wonderful. A very nice and cosy place with refreshing bath and points you brought tranquillity. The guide was very friendly and was explaining many curiosities for the trail. The staircase (of 886 steps) is well drawn, but that doesn't hinder the rest of the tour. The restaurant food was tasty, but I think they could have more options.
