  • The waterfall is beautiful. You pay a small fee to R $3.00, because the property is private and they take good care of the place. Create beautiful hydrangeas that make the site more enjoyable still. Very good to cool off in the waters and take pictures.

  • We went to the waterfall and the entry cost 3 reais per person. We were about 45 min just her, but it's worth going for the day, there's a nice restaurant and food are apparently good. The prices are fair, but bring cash. The waterfalls is difficult for merchants to accept visa electron or charge

  • The waterfall is inside a private property and admission is charged, it cost R$3,00 per person in October 2017. Inside the structure is provided with bar, where the pineapple caipirinha is delicious, the beer is cold, and very tasty snacks. The price? Enough into account. Caipirinha costs R$7,00, R $4.00 and so pastel ... There are two swimming pools, one for children and a larger, both supplied with water from the river and has a pipe with running water. Too good! The waterfall, when my visit in October, was with the water flow decreased, due to the drought in the State. Have lawn for sunbathing, but the amount of shadow at the beginning of the day, is little, so you may want to take the umbrella too! If you like places with few people, the months of heat will not be a good time to visit. The site opens to the public on weekends and holidays. There's only one small problem ... There is a descent and consequently a very steep climb, as input and output. I believe someone with mobility problems or knee, will have difficulty. The final part of the access road, is Earth.

Where to stay in Nova Friburgo

As a popular tourist hotspot, Nova Friburgo boasts a wide range of boutique, midsize hotels in the city center, mainly clustered within a few blocks of the Bengalas River. These accommodations, just a short walk from the city's main streets, tend to be somewhat upscale, with onsite pools and gardens. Many feature architectural styles reminiscent of Swiss and German mountain chalets. In the hills south of the city, past Point de Saudade, you'll find more nature-oriented options and eco-lodges, which focus on comfort combined with a somewhat rustic feel. Plenty of "pousadas" also dot the area: traditional Brazilian guesthouses offering lower prices in exchange for fewer amenities.
