  • The waterfall is a great place for a nice swim, the water is clear and cold, the mountains very close. Need to drive to go, take the road that goes to New York, and then face a dirt road, which is usually in good condition. The environment is completely natural and rustic infrastructure like bathrooms or bars.

  • Spectacular waterfall! In April I was with a good volume of water. Quiet place good for a swim gelaaaado and meditation. Despite being flagged, stay tuned to access the highway, the route is on a dirt road in done quietly in 10 min by car.

  • 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.
