  • Located between the municipalities of Guarapuava, Prudentópolis and Cloudy look beautiful waterfall is located about 46 km from the city of Guarapuava, with access by 40 km on a paved service road, but reduced width, complemented by about 6 km from a reasonable road Earth. From the parking lot to the main lookout is about 500 m. The view of the falls from above and laterally is impressive, there are approximately 196 meters of free fall. Walking a little more, followed by a trail with metal body guard you reach a large gazebo located next to the fall with great view of the volume of water in the fall. A little further, following the trail along the river there is a much smaller waterfall (the Gentlemen), with different characteristics, small time, but also of a singular beauty.

  • Wonderful ... Leaving Guarapuava most of the path is made by a paved road and the last kilometers are by dirt road. The access can be done by vehicles and the trail to the falls is lightweight even for people with less physical preparation. Worth the effort!!! At the entrance to the Park has a snack bar and bathroom. I didn't get down to the bottom as it was with the son and the trail is relatively boring for kids.

  • The jump San Francisco has two tracks: one that leads to the mirante (view of the falls from above) where the path is quiet, suitable for all ages, and one that goes to the foot of the waterfall. This second path is very difficult, stressful and exhausting. However, all the tiredness and rewarded by the sight of the waterfall! Tip: the way to the foot of the waterfall has more than 9 km in total (roundtrip) then take water, food, sunscreen, insect repellent and has fitness to hold a track in dense forest, without signaling and that, in several snippets, you will need the feet and hands to climb some rocks.

  • The view from the lookout is fabulous! The best way to reach the waterfall is the road of Guarapuava, because good part is paved.

  • Wonderful place, worth the visit. There are two walking options one can observe the jump of the gazebo and enjoy to enjoy the water jump of the gentlemen, this tour is simple and can be done for the whole family. The second option is walking down the trail to the foot of the jump, it's a walk to remember, but the trail presents high difficulty that I particularly don't recommend to people of more advanced ages and children, emphasizing that there is no infrastructure on the trail and not good places to rest which makes it even more difficult. For those who like adventure further recommend out of Guarapuava, are 47 km to the Park. Happy trails to all
