One of the divine experiences of traveling along the Brazilian lands is the surprise appearance of little waterfalls along the road. You stop the car, dive into the shower, fill your bottle and go back to the car, dripping, in bliss.

Here is a selection of images of Brazilian waterfalls for your delight. But first, check the list with the 12 most beautiful cachoeiras, according to Guia Quatro Rodas, a tourism guide that is the bible of the country’s tourists.

1 – Cachoeira do Buracão (Ibicoara, Bahia)

2 – Iguaçú Falls (Foz do Iguaçú, Paraná, and also Argentina)

    todas sao lindas. faltaram apenas as cachoeiras de visconde de maua, maromba e maringa, que ficam na divisa dos estados do rio de janeiro, sao paulo e minas gerais. tem uma fazenda chamada alcantilado, com dez quedas de cachoeiras. um lugar maravilhoso. no pe da montanha tem um boteco para voce recuperar a energia com uma deliciosa porcao de bolinho de abobora com carne seca e uma cerveja bem gelada!

    Vale a pena visita-la. Em maromba tem a cacheira do escorrega e a santa clara. Maravilhosas tambem.

    Na Chapada dos Veadeiros tem a Trilha das Loquinhas, com cinco pocos maravilhosos, verdadeiros santuarios, alem do Vale da Lua. Um lugar imperdivel.

    Love the Iguaçú Falls…They’re just stunning. Definitely my favourite. A highly recommended travel experience to anyone looking for pure nature, flora, fauna, wildlife…
