Poco do Marimbondo Waterfall, Visconde de Maua

(4.7/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Want an adventure? Go to the Hornet. The place is really beautiful, but the road is terrible, narrow, with many rocks and holes, there is not much place where to park. The day I was several cars were stuck. It's pretty far away, I personally didn't think it was worth it, Visconde de Mauá has most beautiful waterfalls and nice places, such as the Cliff (Sensational)

  • Fantastic Cachoreira, green and crystalline water, generally have few people because it is a place of difficult access. Every time we go in this waterfall I prefer to rent an ATV than put my car on the road quite bumpy. But there are people who venture to drive up there. Has a fast track of some 10 minutes until you reach the waterfall. Linda d +. Recommend.

  • Well is well and will never be a waterfall. I prefer 1000 times waterfall, waterfalls and all. The well is only a site that collects water ... right, walked more than 5 km to hitchhiking (we were in maromba and walk), much of the route is on a dirt road that will haze of your car if it was not 4 x 4. In our case, the driver stopped before and we went 2 the 3 km to reach the well. The route is beautiful, with view of the mountains and just bubbling. The well is not large, the water is cold and clean well. Has some rocks for diving and it's not even a little high. It was worth it because we got a ride, if we had walked the whole trail would be the biggest regret of my life. Is the place to go once in a lifetime and if not life goes without trauma too.
