    Delicious for a bath in the waterfall. You can stretch the rocks and enjoy. Well good. Worth the visit.

    Beautiful easy to access clear, clean water. Great to bring kids on a hot day and spend the day there's room for a picnic.

    Hidden amid lush vegetation, but easily accessible, this waterfall way some good falls and pools of crystal clear water. There are several rocks where you can sit and enjoy the scenery.

Where to stay in Goncalves

Characterful, rustic lodges and pousadas (guesthouses) represent the most popular accommodation styles in Goncalves, with little price differentiation between them. A couple lodgings located on the outskirts of town offer larger grounds, while some include additional services, such as breakfast and tour booking. Due to the relatively small number of options available, you'll need to reserve your accommodations in Goncalves in advance. Campsites offer a good choice for getting directly out into the surrounding landscape.
