Ibitipoca State Park is a deligthful. Very well preserved this park has rivers, waterfalls, wild animals , beautiful scenario in a rural enviromental. Feels like an old farm surrounded by silence and nature. The best way to stay is at this place. It is expensive, prices of a 5 star hotel but it deserves it. It feels like traveling back in time. It has conviniences and yet keeps the touch of an old farm. Confortable bed and bath, everything was though to provoke...To arise our senses..there is beauty everywhere. Exellent food. Breakfast, lunch, dinner.. amazingly good.
The place is not easily accesed. Next biggest town is the city of Lima Duarte which is a small town of 20K people. Need to be reached by car or contact the hotel to see if they offer transportation. From Rio is around 4-5 hrs drive. Lima Duarte city will be around 3-4 hrs drive.
Drive towards State of Minas Gerais, city of Juiz de Fora and then towards the city of LIma Duarte, get off the highway in Lima Duarte e follow the signs to IBitipoca. The hotel is in mid way from Lima Duarte city to Ibitipoca small village.
At night visit the town of Ibitipoca for music, rustic bar and beers..It is a safe place. Crimes are close to zero.
