Brazil's biggest national park. Greatly preserved wall painting, ranging from 5 to 30 000 years old. Great guides as well, incredibly empty and clean. Not to be missed, especially since it's probably closing soon. What a government Brazil has at the moment.

Breathtaking landscapes, endemic wildlife and the mysteries of the human occupation of the South American continent. Thanks to the great efforts of FUMDHAM (Niede Guidon and team), this is arguably Brazil's best National Park. It is, of course, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This amazing...More
