  • Access to the falls of the macaws is easy and quiet, with few kilometers on a narrow dirt road, was pretty good when we went. The restaurant serves homemade food tasty, but a bit salty, price around R$ 40.00 per kilo. Also has a couple of kiosks to make your own barbecue, but as we were in pairs, we try for lunch at the restaurant, so don't iterei on the value of rent of kiosks. I saw many people taking styrofoam, I asked if it was released without any restrictions and I was informed that in addition to the entry fee which costs R$ 20.00 per person, they charge a fee of 10.00 R$ for styrofoam. As for attractions, the nature of the place is nice but the place becomes awful due to lack of education and sense of preservation of most of its regulars. At first I noticed unpleasant attitudes on the part of some, such as the fact that even with the existence of boards informing about the ban and danger of jumping from the top of the waterfall, there was a group jumping the rocks without any warning by the site owners. At the time it was full of people doing barbecue, what caused a lot of smoke, but the worst was the amount of beverage cans thrown in, leaving the dirty environment. Another fact is that there were some bathing dogs with their owners in place, Yes, there are animals allowed, and although love my dogs, I would not dare to take them to this kind of place. To finish, the water was murky and all inviting for bathing, but still, there were a lot of people in the water. I just looked, did some photographic records and left. Do not recommend

  • To enter the waterfall is not moving anything, the car arrives at the door, but that facility just to keep you full. Has a restaurant on site.

  • I was sometimes in cachoeira das araras. At first I liked most. This last time I was disappointed, not with what the natuteza provides, but with the attitudes of the regulars. Unfortunately most treats her place and leisure as the garbage where probably live. Trash everywhere. Usuarios pigs and undisciplined employees. Tip: wear sandals or crocs to enter the water to not cut the walk on broken glass.

  • ótimo lugar.
  • Cachoeira linda, ótima para quem quer nadar, com um bom espaço na parte rasa e na funda. O único defeito é que durante a semana fica um pouco abandonada (restaurante e lanchonetes não funcionam) e cobram o mesmo preço dos fins de semana (R$ 20,00 por pessoa)
  • Infelizmente instalaram um bar a beira da cachoeira. Uma afronta à natureza local !!! Eu e minha mulher preferimos descer o rio pelo seu próprio leito pedregoso e, uns 60/80 metros adiante, encontramos um aquário natural ótimo para nadar e apreciar a força da natureza manifesta ali.
  • Bem legal para passar o final de semana. O lugar está um pouco "urbanizado", churrasqueiras próximas ao rio, deixando um pouco de lado aquela intenção de ter contato com a natureza. É melhor ir fora de temporada, assim dá pra aproveitar os vários pontos legais que a cachoeira tem.
  • local muito bom , principalmente para idosos pois a primeira cachoeira fica a aprox. 100 metros do estacionamento, mas a segunda não é recomendada para que não goste de andar fica a quase 1,5km,com intensas subidas e descida o que faz parece 10km(rsrs!), mas o local é bom pra descansar(em temporadas deve ser bem cheio).
