  • Beautiful nature, waterfall and pools with pleasant water. Important to arrive early to avoid large amount of people and consequently the dirt. Missing signs on the road to reach the site. Worth the visit.

  • Crystal clear water and warm days of summer. A fantastic shower! Very nice. Distant and little signaled, nothing a GPS won't help. I believe that only private vehicle even.

  • One of the most beautiful waterfalls of the mountain region of Rio de Janeiro. place to go with family and friends, and enjoy a lot. It is worth mentioning that, and a location that won't start cell, and access is by road Nova Friburgo x Teresópolis Jequiá nearby, get off the pavement and walks around a 5 km of dirt road. The place is a paradise, a gift given to nature for us, for who really seek a leisure where you can switch off from everyday life. remembering that, there's no security in place, and there is the presence of hawkers selling drinks to anyone who wants to buy, unfortunately, walking through the rocks above the main waterfalls, can observe several cans of drinks abandoned by rivers and corners of trails ... a shame because this place deserves attention, if possible even guard Park to avoid such disregard on the part of the public , that no concept use the place as if it were the Recycle Bin of your House ... Unfortunately.

  • 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.

  • Quedas d´água pequenas, mas lindas! Um lugar de paz no interior da cidade. Costumo vir pedalando para cá de Teresópolis, um caminho de aproximadamente 50Km (ida e volta) de estradas tranquilas, mas com poucos acostamentos (cuidado). A recompensa vale a pena! Águas super refrescantes da cachoeira e uma paisagem linda, acompanhadas pelo som da natureza, longe do caos urbano. Recomendo! Nota: Cuidado com pedras escorregadias.
