Boca da Onca Falls, Bodoquena

4.7
#4 of 24 in Nature in State of Mato Grosso do Sul
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.

    Paradise waterfalls (I think 7 in total, and may enter in 3), very well preserved and with excellent infrastructure. Geladissima water. The value of the entry also includes the lunch is a natural pool.

    It's a ride worth, make the track with the 09 waterfalls is the best fantasístico waterfalls in the region of Bonito (the location is 60 km from the Bodoquena beautiful, but is sold in all Agency) ... the waterfall from the mouth of the Jaguar's stunning, breathtaking, dive into the Monkey's great falls, the trail is challenging but beautiful at the same time ... the best of Beautiful ... the seat of receptive is very beautiful and you have a lovely view of the Valley. Rappelling is something that draws attention, never had done and decided to face it, it's not cheap (R $210.00) per person ... the guides/instructors are friendly kind. However, there is a MAJOR FLAW, the descent is made on 02 people and the schema of a platform people looking down into the Valley (an incredible view) and another comes down looking at the wall of stones (something regrettable) for the price paid, could make the individual, descent was only our family down ... of course this goes d air much more work for instructors then if you decide to do the rappelling insist on do it yourself, even if you're in a group, and get off looking at the Valley.

    Did the abseiling and it was the worst experience I've had in Nice, and gave very bad luck in the first restaurant that I went ... UNFORTUNATE down in double for a people stand back to landscape with a view of all the way down a huge stone wall while the other side has a beautiful view of the Valley (who is overwhelmed by a person in front of her) lack of OVERALL planning, easily correctable problem just by rotating the position of descent , so both of the duo would have a pretty sight the fall not to mention that I am a person without fitness and I was sore for the rest of the track, completely ruining the rest of my experience in the waterfalls and stops for swimming. I don't know if the Chair was misplaced or if I wasn't instructed properly what position be, just know that after 2 minutes of descent that lasted 15 already started to feel the pain and with 4 minutes I had not, but had to hold back the pain because my double was very light and I couldn't go down faster because there wasn't much BAD weight ACTIVITY , BAD
