Cachoeira do Simao, Goncalves
(4.4/5 based on 110+ 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.

  • Easy access, in the way of Gourmet Bistro, just park the car and go. Great for the shower, especially during the week and in the afternoon, when it's empty.

  • To reach, after following the directions of the road, a right indent, before a small wooden bridge. Between by kill donkey, and walk around of 100 meters. Attention to the well, because we understand that it can be dangerous!

  • Good for a swim, but how do you get very close drive (ideal for those who do not want to or can walk), the place gets pretty full. Recommend on days that are not holiday/peak season.
