Presidente Figueiredo is about 100KM north by north west of Manaus. Excellent road. Many thunderous waterfalls, which feed into the Rio Negro. The water is also a dark tannin color like the Rio Negro. Santuario is just one of many impressive waterfalls. You need a car to commute between them. Swimming is fun and exhilarating. There are also pretty neat... More

The falls are located about a 125 km north of Manaus. You would need to visit by Taxi or by tourist agency ...

The falls are located about a 125 kilometres north of Manaus. You would need to visit by Taxi. The waterfall has an overhang at one corner where people can stand under. Others chose to get into the river a little down stream. undoubtedly a beautiful sight, it gets crowded on the weekend.

Beautifull waterfall and igarapé area. Good space for a large amount of people but obviously better when not so crowded. Worth a visit.

This waterfall is fantastic because we can be under it and feel the delicious massage the water can do on our shoulders, arms, legs, lumbar region... The danger is you do not want to leave it anymore!

I did not know what to expect, and it was a lovely surprise!!! The water was not cold as I thought it would be. The location, the walk to river, with all the nature at it's best surrounding us, was a great experience.I would go again if I had a chance!

This great waterfall is one of many in the Presidente Figueredo area, and is reached by road, using the BR-174 (Federal Highway), and is about 140Km from Manaus. The drive is great, the road good, and the place a small sanctuary, with intact preserved jungle -a must, if you have the means! A close encounter with nature.

This waterfall is not Iguacu but there is something magical about this waterfall. It is located in the middle of the jungle and everything around it is still original, it really belong to the nature and not a touristic and commercial place. I came during rainy season where the water volume is high, to see the strong flow of the... More
