  • I have a cottage in Teresópolis, then attend this always falls. She is very nice and very approachable, so children and elderly people can go without worrying. Sometimes, some animals from farms and neighbouring places run away and go to the waterfall as well (horses, cows, oxen and even Bulls). The only problem of this waterfall is that it fills during holidays TOO and is a farofada without size. People park anywhere, so in hr out always rolls a stress. People drinking and leaving their trash in the waterfall. On one occasion there was even someone selling roast chicken (I'm not kidding hehe). Then, on holiday I do not recommend the waterfall of Friars, but rather a waterfall in the National Park between Teresópolis and Guapimirim (in the sense of who's coming up the mountain), because as she's paid fills less and doesn't get crumbly.

  • Great for partying with friends a waterfall bath. Stay away from the Center and the access is bad, by dirt road. On weekends, it gets very busy.

  • Look, my husband and I drove, since we were staying in a posada in Nova Friburgo. It was super easy to find (if in doubt just ask for residents). I loved this waterfall, is unlike any other I've ever been to. The look is spectacular, cold water and is inside a private property. Well worth a stop by there. Take food and water, because there have nothing to sell. Only has Bush, kitties and peace! Be back soon with my family and in the summer.

  • A delightful waterfall with natural pool and good places in the rocks to stay for a good recreation time. In sunny weekends and holidays it tend to receive many visitors, so if you prefer to enjoy nature in silence and peace you should visit it during the working days. To get there you'll need to drive on road and off road and there's no many signs on the way. There's no stores or markets around, so take with you drinkable water and food. There's no amenities, bathrooms or garbages, so don't forget to get back your trash with you. It's a very relaxing day trip from Rio.
  • Reasonable access if it doesn't rain and the place is beautiful!

  • I am assiduous frequenter of mountainous region and, consequently, fond of its natural beauty, especially its rivers, waterfalls, valleys and mountains. In terms of waterfalls is the best that I got. Despite being a bit far from asphalt to dirt road is not bad, and even if it were, the reward worth the sacrifice.

  • The dirt road is reasonable, very beautiful place. The day was pretty full and it was a little hard to park.

  • A beautiful place, it's a bit away and has a dirt road that requires certain skill to drive. Despite not having an access so easy, the place attracts many visitors. You can find even some vendors of snacks on site.

Where to stay in Teresopolis

Because one of the mains draws of Teresopolis is nature, it seems fitting that eco-friendly accommodation options are the norm here. The natural environment is highly valued and respected by the range of hotels and inns, which have been designed to integrate with nature. Look for cozy hotels tucked into the maze of city streets in the center, or base yourself closer to the national park if getting to the top of one of the mountains tops your list.
