  • Tracks with obstacles and need for shoes and light clothes. With high temperatures of the city a waterfall always the best option to rest.

  • Pretty easy to get and today is well signposted. If it's a rises 15 min bus by Lee Thursday and about 30. Careful with just a fork that goes into the box, is also great, but it's more.

  • Beautiful place, track with light level of difficulty to get to the waterfall, with some parts little flagged and a way a little deserted. The waterfall has two water falls and the first is best p bathe the q to second.

  • The trek was really good. But beware, as it may be too dangerous for old people or kids under 8 years if not carried. The waterfall is an excellent place to take some photos and chill for a bit before going all the way back. Moreover, supposedly there are some monkeys in the trees, but I didn't get to see any.
  • We have not found the waterfall. It is only a street with luxury homes and actually quite some monkeys, but I think that the waterfall was destroyed to build a House. That's too bad

  • Excellent track and the waterfall is only with cool water in summer. Oh trail is deserted, and by the way good feels pretty smell of marijuana. How to stay out of the Tijuca Park of a feeling of insecurity, I advise you to do as a group.

  • Great for trail riding or racing. Going up the top JB is just 800 m from the entrance to the trail

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
