The first stop is the Macuco Safari Stop-this is for those who have bought a ticket for the boat. Even if you bought it, it is best to first look at waterfalls above i.e. pass this stop, and then, having enough, feel their power inside.

Going on these bridges can be very decently get wet, especially at the end of the path. So if you do not want to get wet, but look down all you want, then buy or bring a rain jacket-rain coat. Here they are sold to 15 reais.
Looking at the throat of the devil can go further. It is the end of the road and waterfalls here are so close that they touch the ball.
