Cachoeira do Simao, Goncalves

(4.4/5 based on 120 reviews on the web)
Located just 3 kilometers (less than 2 mi) from the city center, Cachoeira do Simao is known for its crystal clear waters cascading into a large natural swimming pool. You can hire a local guide to take you to this waterfall, which can be accessed by a well-maintained rustic road. A guide can also indicate safe swimming spots in the area. If you choose to do so, keep in mind that the water here can be icy cold and unpredictable. Visitors travelling with small children prefer to picnic near the water or hike around the waterfall, which is surrounded by lush vegetation virtually unspoiled by man. Make Cachoeira do Simao a part of your Goncalves vacation plans using our Goncalves tourist route planner.

  • Beautiful waterfall with a good natural pool. Watch out for the slippery stones and the depth of the pool with the waterfall!

  • Beautiful place, nice, with a beautiful landscape of calm waters. One of the few waterfalls with easy access and outside of private properties where it is necessary to enter with authorization or guide.

  • I didn't like and very small and fit little ladies and there you have no where to park. And on the side of the road so I couldn't stop to view the waterfall, as had other cars stopped.
