Mosquitos was an excellent place to visit. The waterfall is gorgeous. The place has no swimming area but you can enjoy the water coming down anyway. The road to go was easy as well and there is no need for a guide. Very simple to find (signs on the road) and the trail is open and clear. I also recommend... More

really nice spot. I visited it in Januari with few rain. Even then it was still worth is. You get there by car so it's the perfect thing to do with sore muscles after a heavy trekking

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
