  • We can't get this fall that appears in the picture. After a bumpy road and with a detour because of sliding, arrived in a private property with gate closed, cattle and no information. On site, there is a "natural pool" and no indication nor visible trail to access the waterfall. Can be recommended for children by the tranquility of the place; Unfortunately need to improve access.

  • The road to the site is terrible! I wouldn't recommend going with stroller common, no signs and no one even close to guide, to get the location of the will to give up because it's a closed property with many cattle at the entrance, not worth the effort, much less damage to the car.

  • Despite being only 11 km of Cunha, spent about 50 minutes to arrive. Not recommend access in rainy periods, because the road despite having pavement in steepest points, is land in your bulk, with a lot of stone and excerpts in which the cars are at risk of becoming bogged down, depending on the amount of rainfall for the period, the waterfall is inside a property and must pass through a gate , without any information, only the request to keep the gate closed, because the cattle will be your visiting fellow. It is possible to park and to get to the waterfall, there is a trail (with potential for a lot of mud) of about 10 min. is a good ride, because there is no infrastructure for visitors, including bathroom. The waterfall is very pretty, with a reasonable height, requiring careful for your visitation. Will render beautiful pictures.

Where to stay in Cunha

A smattering of accommodations exists in the main urban area of the city, with family-run pousadas (guesthouses) and basic hotels the main options for visitors. Because so much of the city's tourism relies on its surrounding areas of green hills and rocky gorges, take a look at the options along the main road, Rod. Paulo Virginio. The north-south road stretches out into the wilder parts of the region and is dotted with interesting and comfortable accommodations, including boutique pousadas, cabins, campsites, and rental villas.
