Poco do Marimbondo Waterfall, Visconde de Maua
(4.7/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • I've been in Visconde de Maua in may 2015, we stayed in a wonderful Inn called Warabi and has a tourism agency, rent an ATV and we took the route that passed through this well indicated by the Guide, very cool to take pictures, mega water cold and crystal clear.

  • A waterfall in the middle of the dense forest, with access by a track, with the preserved nature, where all you want is to sit and admire, extremely cold water, I think the coldest I've ever been, more would not forgive me if I don't swim in its waters, so with great courage, went into its crystal clear waters. Magnificent experience and filtering system.
