Cachoeira Lagoa Azul, Capitolio

4.5
#2 of 6 in Things to do in Capitolio
One of the most beautiful waterfalls in the area, Cachoeira Lagoa Azul is easily accessible by boat, passing by other caves and waterfalls along the way. The climb up a stone path to reach it provides a bit of adventure. The crystal clear water of the falls is very cold, but extremely refreshing and cleansing. There is a floating bar on site where you swim and also order a drink or bite to eat.

  • The Blue Lagoon Waterfall can be accessed from 2 ways: during the tour by boat, there is a stop on the floating bar that gives you access to a stairwell to climb up there ($ 30; negative point: the stop is short and you can't enjoy); or you can go on the highway, stop at km 311 of the MG 050, and down to the waterfall (also at the cost of $30; we chose for this form). Now in November was still dry, so the waterfall was not abundant. But the lagoon that forms is crystal-clear, and the place is very quiet because it has so many people. So we were longer enjoying the shower and the Sun thought it was beautiful!

  • Very quiet waterfall for swimming, crystal clear water, children can swim without concern. I was there until the time of speedboat ride in the Canyons of Furnas.

Where to stay in Capitolio

Given the general focus on outdoor activities, rooms in Capitolio tend to be pretty simple, and services basic. Save on costs by foregoing a room with a view, or avoid the main, purpose-built hotels of the urban area. If you do stay by the reservoir, expect to pay a higher price for some pretty spectacular views across the water. Heading a little farther out of town can also keep prices down, although some resort-style accommodations also lie in the remote areas, occupying big sites with abundant natural charm.
