Formiga Waterfall, Mateiros
(4.8/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The waterfall of the river Ant is not high, but concentrates a huge volume of water (clean, crystal clear). Bathing in these waters greenish (a species of giant Emerald) is refreshing and unforgettable. It flows in a well (somewhat deep), but around the waters are well calminhas (for those who don't want to "excitement").

  • I loved the Cachoeira do Formiga. Crystal clear water. We spent a delightful afternoon. Easy access. Pay to enter, as we were with a tour operator so we don't have to worry about the entries because the guide had everything right
