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

We went on a tour and crossed this slide, some opting to try it. It was a little cool the day we were there and the local teens were showing us the ropes...super cool and then off to lunch in the jungle!

This is one of the most beautiful place to visit in Paraty, if you like adventure you can try surfing on the "toboggan", if not like me you can take some pictures! Easy to access.

well it always depends with what you compare. for me personally it is ok to escape the heat in town paraty. but beside that it's nothing special.
