Poco do Marimbondo Waterfall, Visconde de Maua

(360+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall
Hidden deep in the lush Vale do Pavão, Poco do Marimbondo Waterfall is at the end of a difficult but scenic trail roughly 3 km (1.9 miles) long. You will know your efforts were worthwhile when, emerging from the undergrowth, you catch your first sight of the beautiful waterfall. The crystal-clear pool, green from the reflection of the surrounding forest, is cold but refreshing, and after diving in, you can bask in the sun on the large boulders at the water’s edge; the only sounds you will hear are the gentle rush of water and melodious birdsong.

  • Difficult place to get, only with local people, but a wonderful place to spend some hours in peace. It is better to leave the car about 4 km before and walk the way to the marimbondo waterfalls.  more »
