  • I liked nature with the very beautiful river, I liked the house that showed pictures of animals, fauna of the place, had even a monkey and a type of dog, I really liked this place, just did not like to know that the water of the waterfall is not drinking, judiação , as they let it get to that point of being unfit to drink
