Formiga Waterfall, Mateiros

A small but powerful cascade with a clear, emerald plunge pool, Formiga Waterfall is an invigorating bathing spot. Dive into the warm, inviting pool and see the minnows darting through the bubbles, or enjoy a soothing massage from mother nature underneath the tumbling falls. Don't be put off by the name, Formiga Waterfall--or 'Ant Waterfall'--is named after the Formiga River, and not an infestation of insects.

  • I haven't seen in my entire life so beautiful a waterfall, water blue or green depending on the sunlight, with pleasant temperatures and abundant nature around.

  • When I was walking along and suddenly I came across the waterfall was a little hypnotized with such natural beauty. Their transparent blue waters amidst the Woods giving a green contrast makes anyone nature lover completely passionate about the environment and the positive energy of the place. I visited in early March/2018 on an expedition to Jalapão and stayed only a few hours, I honestly would be the whole day without blinking. Without a doubt an unforgettable ride as all the Jalapão. #apaixonada

  • Easy access, well-organized, wonderful water temperature. But to get there we must go with a guide to the Jalapão, because distances are large, the hostels have to be booked in advance and there is need for 4 x 4 vehicle. Advise the Jalapa Adventure Ecotur, (see on facebook)
