Niagara Falls and Victoria Falls are massive and amazing, but I found the waterfalls here to be so inviting and approachable. Tranquility and serene, the whole park is so enjoyable. Unfortunately trying to see as many sights on Sao Miguel as possible, didn't give it...More

This one is a bit off of the beaten track. It is very easy to find and worth the drive. There are trails that are not on the park map through the fence at the old mill.
