Well the waterfall itself is really not impressive at all, but the natural water slide is a lot of fun and absolutely worth going there. There is a shallow stream of water running over an algae covered rock, so it is quite slippery and you can gain quite some speed. There were some locals around performing tricks.

The waterslide is short walk of the main road, where you will find a bistro / bar with very reasonable prices, restaurant and small cachaca destille (Engenho D'Ouro) which is also worth a visit.

While most people go to the waterfalls on organized tours we rented mountainbikes in Paraty (from Paraty tours). From Paraty it is about 9km on RJ-165 and the last part is a bit steep but not a problem, just make sure you get a somewhat maintained bike. Mine had some issues with the transmission in low gears / the chain came off once. The bike my girlfriend got was fine though.

I went on a trip to four different waterfalls in Paratay, and I THINK this is the one that is a 20 metre natural water slide! I went down feet first, head first, sideways.... SO much fun. It was also really good fun watching the guys that were there "surfing" down it and doing all sorts of tricks like skipping a rope at the same time, or jumping over people, doing somersaults etc. A must see!
