  • Access is by trail which starts with a long ladder early on, the trail is dense forest I advise go with tour guide but is quiet. In December 2017 we pay 10.00 per person in the access point that is right on the edge of the track, well accessible. In which has access to Waterfall slide monkey and argyrosomus japonicus. Not advise young children because the trail is a little tiring.

  • The waterfalls are beautiful, that's right, the waterfalls, because the trail that leads to the waterfall passes through monkey slide roncador. The structure of the site is very good, the car is parked at the base where you pay 10 reais per person to enter ... have bathroom and a shower nozzle ... also has some snacks and water to buy alcoholic beverages is not permitted. There is a control of people who join on the trail and a guide is there in giving assistance falls. The trail is very well signposted and conserved, I went in one day after a downpour and the trail was great.
