Waterfall Trail, Brazil

Sylvia Knight explored the waterfall trail in the Reserva Ecológica de Guapiaçu nature reserve in Brazil


Dipping in waterfall pools

This year, we were lucky enough to swim in a number of amazing places while on a family holiday to Brazil, and the best by far was the ‘waterfall trail’ in the Reserva Ecológica de Guapiaçu nature reserve, a couple of hours inland from Rio de Janeiro. The reserve was set up to preserve and extend one of the last remnants of Atlantic Rainforest (not to be confused with Amazonian Rainforest). The easily accessible trails which are maintained through it allow visitors to see some of the amazing natural beauty and biodiversity that the reserve protects. However, it also contains a number of small rivers and these tumble down the mountainsides, forming plunge pools which are perfect swimming spots.
