Cachoeira Santa Maria, Pirenopolis

#2 of 20 in Parks in Pirenopolis
Waterfall · Nature / Park
The natural beauty of Cachoeira Santa Maria will mesmerize you. Located in Reserva Ecológica Vargem Grande, a privately owned nature reserve, you reach both falls by taking a well-maintained, paved trail through dense vegetation. First you will come to Cachoeira Santa Maria, and after a dip in its cool waters, you can sunbathe on the pretty, white beach. Cachoeira do Lázaro is another 1,500 m (0.9 miles) hike over trickier terrain but well worth the effort. The larger of the two, Lázaro is less visited but visually more stunning, with several flows of water cascading over the rocks.

  • long eatser wkend with my boyfriend to this beautiful Pirinopolis and country life. Amazing landscape and food and people.  more »
  • You need to enter by a restrict area (paying a small fee) and then park your car. With a 500meters walk (good trail, with stones in the ground) you reach a small sand beach in front of the waterfall.....  more »
  • Went there on the day that Brazilian Soccer team was playing in the World Cup.. 1.300mts walk but worthy at the end. My wife, stepson and me enjoyed quite a lot.. a bit freezing the water but you get used to. Get there early in the morning. Price to visit this place is $35 reais aprox. 15 US dollars...
  • The place is wonderful. Note: There is a 7km off road before getting to the location.
