Escorrega Waterfall, Visconde de Maua

4.6
#1 of 18 in Things to do in Visconde de Maua
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. Plan a trip to Visconde de Maua easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • The waterfall is beautiful! We choose to leave the car in the Plaza of Maromba and do the walk the walk. It was fairly easy to get. But for those who prefer, has on-site parking. It also has shops. As it was raining, no one was slipping in the rock. Thanks super worth Walkabout and get to that wonder of nature.

  • Very good! Structure of on-site restaurants and even a small village with local exhibitions. Access is bad (very narrow road and with holes). It is not always possible to descend the waterfall because she can be pretty full. Super cold water. It has 2 cabins on her side that are the most beautiful thing! Recommend!

  • The waterfall slide, Maromba, in the municipality of Itatiaia, Rio de Janeiro is perhaps the most famous tourist attraction of the region of Visconde de Maua. The waterfall receives the waters of the Parque Nacional do Itatiaia, which belongs. The waterfall is named because there is a kind of "water slide" where people join to fall down a well of water at the end of the fall. The path to the entrance of the waterfall can be done by car. In the stretch of the village of Maromba for asphalt, after the road is gravel. Nevertheless, it is possible to go from stroller, just check with any stones or holes. Around the waterfall there's parking structure, with souvenir shops, food and bathrooms. If you want to walk, walk about 1 mile from the village of Maromba. The excerpt is uphill. On the way to the waterfall it is still possible to visit the bride's Veil waterfall and the Potion 7 meters. Take the family and bring excellent memories.

  • Beautiful place, me and my wife love, despite the road have its complications, it is possible to reach the site even with a lower vehicle. Good for taking pictures and a thrill to part who slips. Very good.

  • Place with exuberant nature, for those who have the will and a little courage to slip, befitting the local access, and dirt roads with many irregularities, nothing to him the ride, particularly prefer it that way to give more excitement.

  • Going to visconde de Mauá cannot fail to meet. Not wanting to venture into the slide, there are quiet places for bathing. Access is easy by a dirt road. The waterfall is at the end of the road (RJ 151), in the maromba. Parking next to R $15.00. There are also restaurants and some craft stores.
