Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Rio Grande do Sul / Canela / Parque Estadual do Caracol
Parque Estadual do Caracol features the world-famous Caracol Waterfall, widely regarded as one of Brazil’s most spectacular falls. The waterfall is formed by the Caracol River and drops from a height of 130 m (426 ft). Situated in the middle of a lush forest, the base of the waterfall can be reached by a steep 927-step trail, which is well-maintained and marked. Nearby you can visit an observation tower, featuring a convenient elevator and offering panoramic views of the area. Cable car rides are also available, providing tourists with a unique opportunity to photograph the waterfall from the air. A top choice for families with small kids, the park includes numerous picnic spots and a small restaurant. To find out how to plan a trip to Canela, use our trip itinerary maker.

Great place to walk and get some fresh air during this pandemic.
Well organized and beautiful park with southern Brazilian nature
It is such beautiful scenery. You can also walk through the forest and see more parts of the fall, get real close with feet in the water. This place offers a beautiful waterfall view, as well as natural garden sections.
Beautiful views from the Observatory. No many options for food or drinks. If you love nature and hiking this is your place.
