Lazaro and Santa Maria Waterfall, Pirenopolis

4.5
#2 of 8 in Nature in Pirenopolis
The natural beauty of Lazaro and Santa Maria Waterfall will mesmerize you. Located in Reserva Ecológica Vargem Grande, a privately owned nature reserve, you reach both falls by taking a well-maintained, paved trail through dense vegetation. First you will come to Cachoeira Santa Maria, and after a dip in its cool waters, you can sunbathe on the pretty, white beach. Cachoeira do Lázaro is another 1,500 m (0.9 miles) hike over trickier terrain but well worth the effort. The larger of the two, Lázaro is less visited but visually more stunning, with several flows of water cascading over the rocks.

    We chose this waterfall by not having long dirt road, access by car is easy, well signposted. Santa Maria waterfall forms a prainha, have plenty of shade to be lying and enjoying the waterfall. You can make a trail of about 1 km and meet the Lazarus falls, too beautiful, too with crystal clear water. Recommend going, bring insect repellent and snack. There offers only pies, there's no lunch.

    Easy trail, the entire route is lined with stone flooring. Are two beautiful waterfalls and quite different from each other. The Lazaro is farther is shallow, so it is possible to reach in the fall d ´ water, the Santa Maria is beautiful and with smaller track, has a nice beach, but how deep is not indicated anywhere near the crash. The reserve is near the falls of the Abbot, made two tracks on the same day and it was great!
