    To reach the waterfalls you need to take the MG-457 and run off the road by a path of ground where there is a small sign indicating the fishing of Zé Darci and follow until the cruise Village (all directions are 17 km). Leave your car in the parking lot and follow on foot. The 2 waterfalls are on the same track. Distances to walk from the parking lot: 350 metres Meirelles falls (5 min) Cachoeira do Boqueirão – 2 km (30 min) the trails are light, but the trail to the Boqueirão wasn't very well demarcated. If you prefer to hire a guide in the city (on average 20 dollars). The Boqueirão is within an area of environmental preservation. Its formation has a gap of more than 40 meters, a natural pool and two waterfalls. You can get there on foot or riding. Visitation rate of R $5 in the waterfall of Manning. Tip: eat at Joe's fishing Darci. The place is beautiful. If you don't want to go fishing, go just to eat. The site is very simple but the fish is very good, with generous portion and pretty cheap (average R $20.00 the portions).

    Boqueirão sight is the largest Canyon of MG was hosting in Ibitipoca and knew the scene by friends. I decided to visit and it was the best thing I did. The town Santa Rita de Jacutinga is 70 miles from ibitipoca and getting there took a dirt road with bucolic landscape, passing by several farms and cattle pastures. Completely deserted the road! Were 10 km until you reach the entrance of the Boqueirão farm. Right at the entrance is the waterfall Meirelles is pretty but not close to the beauty of the Canyon. Until the Boqueirão 15 min walk are easy on a beautiful! Can swim across the rift and arrives in a small waterfall. The site has enough rock with MOSS. This is the only q care should have to not get hurt. I highly recommend!

    Beautiful waterfall and the rift has unique look. Well good for swimming. In Boqueirão the sun don't shine too, so it's a little cold, but nothing that prevents the bath. Are 12 km of dirt road where any car passes. Parking is possible in the waterfall of Manning or follow the car a little longer to where the trail begins to the Boqueirão. The trail is light and quick, quiet walk for half an hour.
