Lazaro and Santa Maria Waterfall, Pirenopolis

(800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The waterfalls are in a Parc Fermé and the track is all done in stone of Pirenópolis, so access is the tidier I've ever seen on trails to waterfalls. Both are beautiful, Lazaro is huge and can already be seen after a while. Santa Maria has a white sand beach where you can sit and enjoy the waterfall. Both are quiet to swim. Beautiful place, I intend to go back soon.

  • Very beautiful waterfall within a well-preserved environmental reserve, featuring a small infrastructure (cafeteria, gift shop, etc). There's a beach in rio, where you can enter a very cold water.

  • Simply one of the most beautiful waterfalls of Pirenópolis, with well cared for access trails and waterfalls just spells, with the right to take showers under its waters and relax on the beach of pure white sand
