This is not really a waterfall per se. It is more of a large slab of solid rock that you can slide down. The water is fairly clear, but a tad on the cold side. This place is a lot of fun, but can get rather crowded, limiting how often you can slide. Sometimes the line is rather long. This... More

Very often this place is packed with tourist but it is fun! Beautiful waterfalls and nature slides. Takes a bit of bravery, but worth the fun! A small walk up the hill brings you to more pools and waterfalls and a yummy stop for pastels and drinks . You can even continue further back to less popular waterfalls . Very... More

If you have a day to kill in Paraty add this to your list. It's only a 20-25 minute bus ride from the town bus station. Just jump on a bus that is going to Penha. It will cost you around R$3,50. Then get off at Toboga Falls. If you're not sure just ask a local or remember after about... More

This place is just 8 km away from Paraty located at the Paraty-Cunha road. In the spot you will find a huge natural slide, another fall named "poço do Tarzan" where people jump from a 15 feet high rock to the river. You can go just to visit or spend a day there. Don't forget to visit "Engenho D'Ouro" just... More

It was raining a lot this holiday in Paraty. Even so we did not get discouraged and went to meet the famous toboggan waterfall! The place is wonderful and had few people. Sliding there is very easy even for those who do not know how to swim, because in the end there is sand and it is not deep even... More

Straight to the point...when you come to Paraty don't miss this amazing place, be carefull there and use locals knowledge but don't miss the experience of sliding down the rocks straight into the water. Loved it* ☺☺☺

This natural slide is amazing! But you have to be careful when you fall in the water! We lost our gopro this way! But the place is still out of this world!

This is simply an amazing fun activity. A rock water slide. I didn't do it because the water was freezing but enjoyed seeing my friends do it. Our tour guide was great. MUST DO in Brazil if you are around the area.

We got the bus from paraty to penha, which was only 3.40 reais and got off at the falls. A short walk later and you're there. The falls are a great slide and it's great to join in with the locals there. Also try the tarza falls a bit further up, accessed by a very rocky (but safe) rope bridge
