Visit also the Motorcycle Museum located in the area. More than 100 two wheels to check. Visit to Alcantilado waterfalls is a demanding walk, that may take almost 2 hours for the whole tour, so be prepared.

One of the main attractions in Visconde de Mauá, the Alcantilado is a natural reserve where you can see in the same track nine different waterfalls and even bath in some of them (beware that the water is extremely cold even during summer). The track runs for 3.5 km (1.5 mile) with somewhat easy access to all waterfalls.
