  • It's not too full, the water is really cold but worth swimming in natural waterfall swimming pool. It's very clean in the background, free of stones. You can swim relaxed. The water pipes, tbm are a good option for those who do not know anything. Not to mention several other pools scattered around the Park. Recommend to families, picnics. great ride.

  • I found the Park very well maintained by making maintenance, with camping, swimming (the swimming pools are always being clean), and make up barbecue. What spoils the main attraction is the mining of NSC (national steel company), which somehow takes advantage of the rain to dump waste into the river which flows in the waterfall. Very sad.
