To move around, some waterfalls are 20km away from the city center, you can use mototaxis or rent for approx. 30 R$ per day a motorbike.
 
In our opinion worth to visit are:
 
 
Santuario Waterfalls
 
¨Cachoeira Santuario¨ (www.cachoeirasantuario.com.br) is an ecologic reserve with jungle paths and 3 waterfalls. It is approx. 13 km away from Presidente Figueiredo and can be reached by car, taxi (fare approx. 20 Reais) or mototaxi (fare approx. 8 reais). The reserve operates a hotel with promotional rates during the week and some adventure activities around the jungle and waterfalls.

The complex with three waterfalls and caves is linked by jungle paths and is a real adventure. Visitors can swim below the waterfall or make  photos standing in the waterfall. The 1,5 km trekking trough the jungle from Iracema waterfall to Araras waterfall takes about 30 minutes and is worth to do. Visitors should calculate one day for the visit to Iracemafalls.
 
TIPP: The hotel offers to its guest budget transfers from and to Presidente Figueiredo. In combination with promotional rates from R$ 70,- per room during the week it might be worth to stay at least one night in the Iracema hotel.
