Formiga Waterfall, Mateiros

4.8
#1 of 24 in Nature in State of Tocantins
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 transparent waters, calm and pleasant temperatures of Cachoeira do Formiga leave with a special charm. There's no big drop, for those looking for spectacle. The trick is not to go on holiday, as all Jalapão, there is room for a lot of people.

    I love waterfalls, but that blue tinge in the water is impressive, she's the fall and after two piscininhas perfect for staying with children or people who do not know swimming. What surprised me most was the water temperature, because instead of the ice found in most waterfalls, this had a wonderful, warm temperature was not pleasant for cooling off in the heat, but without that cold. The infrastructure is good, the waterfall has a wooden deck with stairs to exit and enter, wooden trunk to support and enjoy the water without effort, have shower, toilets, local sites for changing table, bar and parking.
