Escorrega Waterfall, Visconde de Maua
(4.4/5 based on 1,500+ 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.

  • One of the great attractions of the city, well worth the delightful walks up to the waterfall slide, passing for lodgings, restaurants and very nice art workshops. The waterfall is also beautiful and has delicious in its bars around, which is ideal to enjoy the afternoon. The waterfall is beautiful and delicious, but in high season is very tumultuous. The trail is light.

  • On our visit it was raining, but gave it to enjoy the beauty of the place. With good weather to enjoy the water slide and swim!

  • Must-see in Visconde de Maua, offers good fun for adults and older children and has parking lots, restaurants and handicraft shops around to mom being distracted by minors.
