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.

  • I found the environment well. The waterfall is beautiful and seemingly slipping seems really nice (I didn't go because it was cold).

  • By the distance we have to travel to reach the conditions give road, I thought I'd find something extraordinary, but I was wrong.

  • The waterfall is beautiful and easy to access and it gets packed. We went around 10:00 in the morning and get traffic in the alleys there, but there's no trail to get to her. The slide is cool, but you need attention. When I went down, to fall into the water hit the rocks.
