This small waterfall is located in spectacular jungle setting. It falls down along moss and fern covered cliff.

Waterfall is accessible from an old cacao plantation home - Roça de Bombaim, which serves now as a hotel. Here still is grown one of world's best cacao.

There is one more waterfall nearby - this waterfall also is gorgeous, located some 750 m to the north from the main plantation house.
