Small trail to get there. Nice water and a very deep natural pool. There's no entry fee, but they ask R$ for parking.

We had a couple of hours to spend in this place. Very nice. The water was rather cold but well worth a swim.

I went there as a part of a day tour and was very nice for swimming. I recommend it. There is also the possibility to do rappel and tyrolean but for this you need to pay.

Slightly out of Lencois so need to have car or do as tour. Gorgeous place but was a lot of people there. You can do rappelling or zip lining. We went with Zentur who were very professional.

not the greatest place, but it's still a waterfall with bathing opportunities. abseiling is offered there as well for a certain fee, if you are into that. there is an awesome gorge starting at the waterfall, unfortunately you won't hike it with any tour, afaik.
