We loved visiting Toboga Falls, you can definately spend a few hours there or a full day of the weather is nice. We caught a local bus from the bus station in Paratay, it cost 4.5 reals each one way (so cheap) and after 20mins...More

The falls in themselves are not spectacular but you can slide on the bottom part for the thrill or go up the trail to swim in a pool. Then, head to the delicious Tarzan restaurant for drinks or food.

This waterfall consists of a huge rock where you can slide down sitting or lying down, a fun experience for adults and kids (although I wouldn't recommend it for small children). It's very easy to access, only a couple of minutes walking from the road...More
