15-Feb-2005 -- Nossa expedição pela Argentina encerrou-se em Foz do Iguaçu, onde permanecemos por mais um dia para visitar o Parque Nacional do Iguaçu e sua mais bela atração, as cataratas. Depois disso iniciamos nosso retorno para casa com um pequeno desvio para a visita a esta confluência que fica a uns 30 km da BR-277, entrando por Vera Cruz do Oeste.

O ponto está situado na Fazenda Cachoeirinha, que agora pertence ao Sr. Altamiro Albino. Fomos recebidos pelo administrador da fazenda, Sr. José Denilson Tavares, que nos acompanhou até o local para registrar a visita. Abordamos o ponto pelo lado norte sem grandes dificuldades chegando com nosso veículo a cerca de 30 metros.

A região é um pouco acidentada e a produção se divide entre agricultura e criação de gado.

15-Feb-2005 -- Our expedition in Argentina finished in Foz do Iguaçu, where we stayed for one more day to visit the National Park of Iguaçu and its most beautiful attraction, the waterfalls. After that we took our way back home with a small deviation for the visit to this confluence that is about 30 km of BR-277, entering by Vera Cruz do Oeste.

The CP is in the farm called "Fazenda Cachoeirinha", that now belongs to Mr. Altamiro Albino. We were received by the farm administrator, Mr. José Denilson Tavares, he joined us to the place to register the visit. We approached the point by the north side without great difficulties parking our vehicle 30 meters of the point.

The region is a little hilly and the economy is based in agriculture and cattle breeding.
