A bit too touristy and crowded. Nice place to have lunch when it´s not too busy. Makes for a pleasant afternoon by the river. Take your sandals and bathing suit along.

Take your swim suit and enjoy bathing at the crystal river water. The sun is warm and the food served in several restaurants are really nice. Take the day to enjoy the view. You need to hire a cab to go to one of the spots where you cross the river by boat. Cab ride goes around $35 reais.
