As soon as you start climbing down the steep trail towards the Cai River, the same one that you can see from the belvederes above as a thin watercourse, you will forgive any bad impression about the park limited structure and lack of options besides...More

This park has 3 spectacular viewing points for the river that forms the famous horseshoe. All 3 points are easily reached in a short (1, 5 and 10 min) walk, but overlook exactly the same spot from 3 slightly different angles. There are some rather...More

Many people prefer to go to Parque da Cascata do Caracol, but this one is far more interesting. Although infrastructure is very poor, the access is through a narrow dirt road, but the beauty of the place certainly worth a visit. There are two tracks...More

Mesmerizing View! You feel you are at nature’s best. The views are breathtaking. Best time to be here is early in the morning when the park opens. As the day progresses the Sun moves behind the valley, which doesn’t provide the best viewing experience. There...More

Great tracks and scenery. Sadly the road to get there is absolutely awful, and it's been for decades.

Beautiful place in the middle of the nature. The trails are near and for all ages, but a lot of steps and rocks. Very beautiful views!!!

The park has a great landscape, and the belvederes are very accessible (2 min easy walk). Consider taking kids or elderly family members. There is a small zip line for children. The staff is very pleasant. You can take some time for exploring the trails,...More
