It was well worth trekking in the rain to get to the Mosquitos Cashoeira; it was a truly spectacular, vertiginous view. Highly recommended.

After having lunch at the nearby poussada it was a great walk to this Waterfall. Refreshing water, several butterflies and dragonflies. Really worth to visit, even when there is not that much water.

Wonderful place. Very peaceful and beautiful. Laying on the water and looking up it feels as if you are in another world where everything is just good and fair. we took a tour car to get to the beginning of the hike. You have to walk a steep pathway to get there, about 30 minutes, but the hike itself is... More

Easy hiking. Tour guide not really needed - of course it is always desired to have someone to help you with explanations about the place, and also to provide some more security while hiking. Water fall was not full, but It was great to bath. Beautiful beautiful views! Rock formations are stunning.

This is a beautiful waterfall and a great find! We had our own car and was able to drive ourselves over a very bumpy dirt road approximately 20 Kilometers. It is possible if you are a little adventurous and not afraid to drive on dirt tracks. If not, you can go on a tour. The advantage that we had is... More

Beautiful! It's a short steep hike. You can swim in the waterfall pool and go in the waterfall. A must do!

Breathtaking waterfall. Be prepared for a long hike. It really is worth seeing. There are many smaller water falls to see in the area but this is the most majestic one of all.

Uma bela cachoeira, o acesso é fácil e custa R$ 5,00 - comprei na própria fazenda, a maior parte do percurso é feito de carro. Depois uma trilha de descida fácil, na volta tem que subir, mas é possível até mesmo para idosos, encontrei alguns no caminho. Vale a visita! A beautiful waterfall, is easily accessible and it costs R$... More
