Very nice waterfall, a little bit too crowded. I visited it via a trail by horse in the rainforest, it was an amazing day, highly recommend going there by horse.

Forget the tour in a jeep! Take your car and go alone in the really morning! Then you can swim alone in the natural pool. We loved it. You have to pay 5R$ for the maintenance guy but it worth it.

The place is amazing on is own. If probably they would install a nice bar or a place to hang around would be even better. I strongly raccomand to pay this waterfall a visit and be " BLESS" by is powerful fall of water

I cycled with my wife to the waterfalls and pools at Pedra Branca which are wonderful. Would advise using a tour guide in jeep, we were robbed at gun point by two locals on a motorbike on the journey back to Paraty. EXTREME CAUTION ADVISED!!!

This is a very entertaining waterfall. The locals are very kind and help you with sliding down the waterfalls. You can also do a cachaca tasting across the street.

We drove there in our SUV, up a road that became a dirt track, was surprised to see other normal cars had made it up there. At one point we wondered if what we were doing was a good idea, but it wasn't a problem....More
