You'll see a tree with an infinitely large stem. Climb to the viewpoint and see the size of the tree, it's where everybody goes to take nice pics.

You can`t have a real idea of the size of this amazing 800 square meters tree unless you go up the observation tower. It`s hard to believe is all one tree!

5 Reais to see something you can see from outside. And they serve you 10 mL of cashew juice. If I knew I wouldn't pay. The tree is beautiful and large but if you don't care you don't need to go there inside.

in addition to seeing the tree there are many vendors selling goods; nearby restaurants as well as the beach. Was not impressed with the beach in this area; we stayed within the area and had lunch

Too commercial. Not much to see, except a big tree. Amazing and interesting from a botanical perspective, but you will not miss much if you do not go.

This is a caju nut tree taht has been let to grow by itself in a protected area and it is amazingly big. You can even go up a ladder to see it from above and also buy loads of cashew nuts in the surroundings
