Escorrega Waterfall, Visconde de Maua

(4.4/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
For the adventurous, Escorrega Waterfall is not just a scenic waterfall in the forests of the Visconde de Mauá region, but a naturally occurring water park. Formed in 1966 during a heavy rainstorm, a smooth sheet of bedrock forms a perfect slide into a crystal clear plunge pool. Further upstream you will find more naturally occurring pools, perfect for taking a dip, and a few craft stalls are set up on a weekend. If you need something to warm you up after the brisk river, try one of the nearby bars or restaurants. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Visconde de Maua holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Escorrega Waterfall and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Restaurants around with reasonable values, but little option, especially if you're with children. Nice place, but gets crowded.

  • Waterfall in form of slide that some descend and plunge into a pit of water freezing. Only for the brave! Is a tour not to be missed. Good for walking the rocks and explore the whims of nature.

  • Slip and fall in the potion is an incredible experience. The place offers bar and restaurant infrastructure. Toilets are also available in addition to the trade in local handicrafts. Very frequented and is always full. Access is a bit difficult to drive because the road single be narrow and restricted parking.
