Not worth driving all the way there. The park has serious management issues. 1. Park closed for lunch from 12 to 1 pm, without prior notice. This change in hours was updated in the SEMA website just a couple of days before the holiday September 7th, so no one knew about it. Visitors who were already inside were trapped and not allowed to get out. We had to wait outside in the scorching sun until it reopened. 2. Payment is cash only! Again, no information on the website. 3. Trails do not have any indication of difficulty level. One trail "Onças" (Jaguars) has no clear indication that you have to walk across the main road to keep hiking. And don't fool yourself, you won't see any jaguars. 4. Restrooms were dirty, no soap or paper towels. 5. At the end of the main trail "Salto do Yucumã" (Yucumã Waterfalls) all you find is a muddy river bank. That's where you step on if you want to view the waterfalls. It is totally inadequate for viewing. It's neither safe nor convenient for tourists. Besides, the viewing area is a 2 meter wide (6.5 feet) gap fenced by reed, so it's a very, very small gap. It's a pity that this park, which was founded in 1954, still hasn't been able to welcome travellers conveniently and safely. The vegetation is exuberant and the River Uruguay is beautiful, but I'm afraid the park lacks in basic infrastructure.
