Escorrega Waterfall, Visconde de Maua

(4.4/5 based on 1,700+ 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.

  • At the top, is quieter and there are some areas that the to enter, but with current. In this part of access to slide too. At the bottom, there is an area where you can swim, it's not deep but in some areas must reach a 1m30cm. Very good, so usually attracts a lot of people. Even with the water is very cold. There's a Bar/Restaurant with great service. Good food and Cold Beer. Access has single-family areas and narrow track, driving is good to go carefully. Walk and a good walk.

  • The waterfall is beautiful and has a bar on site, however, we're not staying long. Is a good place to take a picture.

  • Is the third. time we go to Visconde de Mauá and this is my favorite waterfall. The road is dirt and bad preserved, but worth it. There's a bar right sex (and expensive), but the place it deserves.
