  • ATTENTION: Take money because the entry (when we were 60 RS) could not be paid by card, only money. I went with my girlfriend, we love the ride. Suggestion, get rested (a) because the tracks are a bit heavy. Take clothes to swim if you like bathe in waterfalls. Normal price of food establishments, but out of the weekend with few options, what you would find in a bar.

  • We had a terrible experience, the attendant Thalia received us in a bad mood, unprepared and without any willingness to help. Dirty bathroom without toilet paper (when mentioned she told me I had q warn the younger of bar). We got to the tree climbing, two adults and two children, but one of the boys had a panic in the third obstacle is he and his mother had to come down. We ask to speak to the Manager to see the possibility of a discount since they did not complete or 1/4 activity (our intention was not to discuss but rather ask and accept if they could not offer the discount) but were treated with contempt, ask to get the Manager but we were not satisfied, the Thalia interrupted the conversation and said he had already given. The guides were awesome, super friendly and calm, careful and gentle, but impossible to recommend a place like this. The gateway of a site is the reception was terrible.

  • Beautiful place ... We arrived in the morning and went out in the late afternoon. Many activities, excellent structure, attention and reception of officials note 10. Perfect view. It's worth it.

  • The lovely nature. Who has the opportunity to do the arvomix (rappelling the falls of the rose bushes, and trees) will love, too much adrenaline. The affordable R per person included the day use Park with access to the trails of the waterfalls.

  • I highly recommend! If you have only one day in Brotas, as was my case, I recommend going in the Corner of the Waterfalls. The Park cost 60 reais to visit and this gives access to trails and waterfalls, but if you want to do some activities, pays part. In the description of the activities was written that cost 150 reais to do tree climbing, zip line and rappelling, but you pay the difference of 60 reais already paid for entry into the Park, i.e. 90 reais. I found the restaurant too expensive (50 reais per person), so I decided to eat a lot of fish bait in the cafeteria (Coming too! Can 2-3 people).

  • Wonderful place! The trail, although it is not easy, it's all marked, you can't go wrong. The view is wonderful. The waterfalls are amazing.

  • Beautiful place. Rose spectacular falls. Diner absurd by the amount of that food (tiny and expensive portion). Game room abandoned. Don't get back to you, give preference to other places.
