This is a waterfall park (paid entry). We walked up from the town which was easy going but very hot (naturally enough for December). Once you get there you have this amazing little natural water park with plunge pools and natural slide. There is a part of the fall that you can get under - it was very refreshing! There... More

Small waterfall but a good park with a natural pool, a natural slider and also another small waterfall. Make sure you're using some anti-insect lotion because there's a LOT of borrachudos (local insect that leaves a very itchy bite) there

Use the insect repellant that is provided! I left the area with tiny bugs attached to my ankles because I did not use the repellant. Others were bitten and had itching and swelling from bug bites. What fun it was to watch people in the water and sliding down the falls! It is not too handicap friendly with the steep... More

Part of your in Ilhabela, these falls is a natural water park. The rocks are gently sloped so if you are brave enough, you can slide (they say toboggan) down into the water. Lifeguards are available. Be careful, the rocks are slippery and they are mosquitos. At this location is a small distillery of the local liquor cachacas. You can... More

My kids had a great time sliding down the rocks. It's amazing that no one gets hurt. Fun activity for the family. The bug repellent is absolutely necessary and it smells very strong, so if you don't like citronella, skip this attraction.

The waterfalls are easily accessible, you can get to them via car. There are 4/5 different areas of the waterfalls that you can enter. The staff are really helpful and will help you get across the tricky areas of the waterfalls if you request them too. It is a beautiful fun little trip and is suitable for everyone, you are... More

Just next to the Toca's fall there's a unique piece of Ilhabela's colonial history - the "Engenho da Toca", which is a small factory of cachaça. For whom may not know it - "cachaça" or "pinga" is a Brazilian spirit made from sugar cane. The Engenho da Toca has a rudimentary wood-wheel driven by water to smash sugar cane and... More

It's a small waterfall, but was still a good place for a nice cool dip. The locals seems to be nice. There will most likely be some mosquitoes but they have stations for some repellant. I didn't want to put any on, so I ended up with a few bites on me. Next time I go there I would like... More

The waterfall is unimpressive, the Citronella doesn't work and is difficult to get off afterwards (you're better off sticking with 'OFF!'), the mosquitos are really nasty - they draw blood even after they've left, and you pay R$10 for the whole unpleasant experience. There's another easily accessible waterfall that doesn't cost anything further north that you don't need mosquito protection... More

The people are great. And it's the only place on the island where you can buy a good "pinga". It's made there. Nice place to bathe and have fun.
