A nice track, level intermediate. And the waterfall is very nice. Good to sunbathe, relax and meditate.

Short, but intense hike into the gorgeous waterfall. It's just beautiful and the water is so refreshing.

If you don't have much time, it's the best of all tours proposed by the local travel agencies where you can enjoy the beauty of Chapada Diamantina. We went there with our 2 years old daughter, it's a nice ride of 25-30 minutes down the hill to reach the waterfall pool. It's a nice and pleasant walk, the swimming experience... More

It is a very nice waterfall in the National Park. the walk to and from the water fall is reasonable and the water is very clear. Not sure if it is a must see but nice!

The falls were perfect the day we visited - enough water to make for spectacular and interesting photography and to be able to the stand under them for a great massage, but not too much or too little water. Well worth the drive to get there.

This waterfall is nice to see and a joy to swim/walk under. The best thing is the scenery where it's located in. The forest is very thick and green. But be aware that it's a long 1.5h drive on a rather bad road from Lencois.

After 2o km of unpaved road you will find out one of the best places in Lencois. For best results in visiting Lencois rent a car. You will be free to see many locations and more cheap if you share the car with other couple. It isn't dificult to find out the places. Use maps.me or google maps - take... More

My boyfriend and I visited Mosquito Waterfall a few weeks ago, and it was absolutely stunning! There's a short hike down to the bottom of the fall. We spent some time taking photos of and enjoying the sites and sounds of the waterfall, then we decided to venture off a bit further down stream. I've come to notice that we... More

We were there in a group with 4 boys (ages 9, 11, 11 and 14). Everybody loved it!!! Going behind the waterfall was scary, but VERY exciting!!!! The children had a blast!!! We, mothers, were afraid, but after going we all loved it!!!
