If you are staying at Fazenda Catucaba and want to add a little adventure into your vacation then you will love horseback riding to find waterfalls! Don’t worry the horses are very tame and calm so even if you have never ridden a horse before you will be perfectly fine.
As you ride up and through the mountains you will come across lots of cows (I swear they are everywhere!), the scenery is picturesque and you will feel completely alone with nature. We didn’t see a single person on our 3 hour journey!
Our guide tied up our horses and we hiked down to the waterfalls (above) and we set up a picnic on the smooth stones in the middle of the waterfall which was really nice and relaxing; a great way to cool off after riding in the sun for an hour. Of course the snacks included were amazing (homemade cheese, fruits etc), see the picnic spread below.
This was the perfect afternoon, a little activity, a beautiful picnic and you get to cool off under a waterfall, another must do when you visit Fazenda Catucaba!
