Formiga Waterfall, Mateiros

(4.9/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • By far, the cachoeira do Formiga is the most sought after attraction of Jalapão. I went to the Carnival and the attraction was packed, yet it totally holds. Is sensational. We pay $20.

  • The waterfall is beautiful, wonderful, a spectacle of nature!! Have the water hot and very transparent. Go with time to enjoy a lot. The only downside is the bathroom that has the entry, could be reformed.
