Great place to visit @ Visconde de Mauá! Organized access and trails are well indicated. Located within a private property. The best view of the Alcantilado valley is from the waterfall named Alcantilado at 1,500m elevation. There are at least half a dozen waterfalls to...More

Great outdoor activity where you can go up a 40 minutes trail passing by many beautiful cascades. The road there is not paved but it´s worth the effort. Any 2WD car can go.

We enjoyed visiting Maringá after many, many years, and find out that it remains a nice and small place for nature lovers. There is no urban life there, aside from small crafts stores and good small restaurants. People who live there care for the place....More

Visit also the Motorcycle Museum located in the area. More than 100 two wheels to check. Visit to Alcantilado waterfalls is a demanding walk, that may take almost 2 hours for the whole tour, so be prepared.

A wandering drive on a dirt road brings you to this marvelous valley - with, as others have said, 9 waterfalls on one trail. A well-maintained path and a steep but walkable hike brings you some stunning scenery. As it's a private park you can...More
