These two cahoeiras are very different from others around this are. Both are large/steep, and offer deep pools in which to swim. The trek to both can be a little tricky, so be careful, but the views are well worth making the journey.

This waterfall is located with the Sao Bento Ranch. There is a R$30 entry fee per person that gives you access to the 3 waterfalls within the Sao Bento property. There is a viewing deck for selfies

These waterfalls are ok, but I wouldn't really say they are special, just waterfalls like many other places. The people at Alto Paraiso especially the tour guide I had ( out of Sao Jorge ) provided very poor service. I wouldn't recommend going there if...More
