Great place to visit. Beautiful and incredible for swimming. There is a restaurant with food both close to the river and at the entrance for complete meals. No guide needed and free!!!

It's so nice there to take a swim, escape the heat. Jump into the water, but be careful. We were out of the main season, so it was not very busy, which is good. Really enjoyed that place.

Great views and swimming. We did it late afternoon and skipped the crowd. Kids loved it! Even with nos too much water in the waterfall it was worth it. Beautiful!

A very convenient short day tour next to Lencois. Agencies usually combine it with other afternoon tours. It's a pleasant 20-25 minutes walk towards the waterfall, we did it with my 2yo daughter on my back. You should see how we were all amazed when...More
