It puts most every other waterfall to shame (I’m looking at you, Niagara Falls!). As the widest falls in the world, the sound and feel of them is otherworldly. It’s as if the falls are preparing to swallow you into the snow-white abyss at the bottom. Getting misted from the falls on a hot day is an amazing feeling too!
Salto Yucuma Waterfall
Spanning nearly 5,000 feet from side to side, the Salto Yucuma Waterfall is known for for its height, but for its incredible breadth! The sounds of this waterfall alone is enough to evoke a feeling of wonderment, to which you can float off and dream to. Just be sure not be careful during the rainy season as it can be quite treacherous.
"Almost 290 species of birds and more than 30 species of medium and large mammals can be found in the park. Many of the species are rare and some are regionally or globally threatened."
Pe Da Serra Waterfall
An underrated beauty in our books, the Pe Da Serra is not too far from other Brazilian attractions such as the Mirante do Cristo and Salome J Rodregues Park, and is also a great option for those who are mindful of their budget as it is free for those to enjoy.
"Pe Da Serra isn't just beautiful to gaze upon — it sounds amazing as well. Find a nice spot to sit, close your eyes and listen to the water cascading down." - expedia.com
