I'm a hiker, wife's a committed birder. Both of us were enchanted!
Wonderful and well-maintained trails through a pristine forest with amazing bird life and a surprise: monkeys not much smaller than chimpanzees. Absolutely amazing encounters w/our fellow primates who were wary, though not exactly shy.
The chalets were wonderful and we very much enjoyed the fires every night (w/provided wood) in the bedroom fireplace. The food? Very, very good home-style Brazilian cooking (buffet) w/ridiculous dessert choices (one night had 8 (yes, eight) chocolate selections--- and they were all good!
After a day of hiking, what better than to relax w/a swim in the heated indoor pool (outdoor's water prohibitively was cool) and then a sauna (2 kinds available, wet and dry).
The staff were VERY helpful.
All-in-all, a place well befitting Brazil's first national park.
