  • The place has a waterfall, dammed area around bath, and some artificial pools. The pools have dark water, I don't know if it's used the cahoeira or if it was dirt anyway. Too crowded and messy, people smoking marijuana freely. I'm glad that the entry is not expensive. I walked in, I was about 30 minutes and left.
