This attraction is located beyond the end of Route RJ-151..after this point you can only hike into the Parque Nacional do Itatiaia. The area was jam-packed with cars and people and tourist traps- we had to pay for parking behind a restaurant. Interesting falls but...More

The fall is nice, but everything around is a tourist trap. Mess parking, sales boots, and people not caring much about trash or preserving the vicinity of the falls. I was disappointed by the lack of any organized structure, from parking space, places to seat...More

Sliding down in the Cachoeira do Escorrega is all about fun. I think it's a must when you go to this region but try to avoid very crowded days (hot summer days, specially weekends) and prefer the morning. Getting there around 10-11am is good enough....More

In fact it's a sequence of slides that ends at a natural pool. Although a little dangerous it's very exciting!

A bit overrated but nice. Generally overcrowded and horrible to access especially if haven't got a jeep or 4x4.

These falls are not far from the Maringá and Maromba villages and can be easily accessed by car. In hot week-ends they may be crowded with people enjoying the cold waters running down the rocks.

Easy access, beautiful landscapes! You can get there with your own car or you can hire a tour that would take you to most of the waterfalls in the area. Very relaxing

My family likes the place and when we go to Visconde de Mauá spent there. A place where it seems that nature has not yet been touched by man.
