Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
After a two hour jeep ride and a forty minute trek through the jungle, you will come upon Gato Waterfall. It is an ideal spot for enjoying the best of Brazil's natural wonders: a beach, a waterfall, and a jungle are grouped together here in a sublime collection of creation. When the waterfall's flow is weak, you can swim under the water and let the pressure massage you, or as the Brazilians say 'let the water wash your soul.' The locals that occupy the area are fishermen that have lived here simply, without electricity or modern amenities, for many years. They take great pride in the falls and are happy to share it with conscientious visitors. For Gato Waterfall and beyond, use our Ilhabela trip builder to get the most from your Ilhabela vacation.
