  • Light waterfall .... good prainha. Good for kids and families. Has good infrastructure: bathroom, restaurant, bar, barbecue areas, playground and saves lives.

  • Waterfall is reasonably close to the city, but it is very frequented with visitors that leave a lot of rubbish, take loud sound, not a good place for anyone who wants quiet. It's also not as good as other waterfalls in the area. I don't particularly recommend.

  • A good option for those with small children is the cachoeira das Araras, Piri. Is not so far from town, and has a good structure for the day. Is equipped with a restaurant and bathrooms, shower and also has a small playground for children. The value to enter the waterfall is a little high but end up compensating. Can you bring food and drinks in the cooler, paying a small fee. Try to arrive a little earlier to settle on the little straw hats available, has tables, chairs and barbecue (don't forget the charcoal and grid). Can also get network to tie in the trees and take a relaxed. The waterfall is clean and has a very good whirlpool. The site has lifeguards and the water is shallow. I love there and the kids too!
