Nice waterfall

The water is really cold. The waterfall is strong. There is a part where you can swim. To get there the trek is easy

Whenever in Penedo, don't miss the chance of visiting one of it's falls, including this one (one of the most famous).

However, don't expect much easiness of route directions, as many other... More

This waterfall lies in the heart of Itatiaia's National Park and is really worth going. For those who enjoy being in touch with nature and seek a peaceful place to relax not so far from big cities such as Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, this is a great choice. A day in the park is surely pleasant and visiting... More
