A few miles down a gravel road, with a 5 reale admission price, this is a nice park with some pretty walks that involve changes in elevation, so are mostly for those in decent shape. There's a small restaurant in the park, and we took advantage of the picnic tables to have sandwiches we bought in Canela. There are some... More

There is no access to the park by public transport and it is few kms away from Canela. The views in the park are amazing. There are several tracks you can take ranging from 20 min walk to 4hrs tramp. I truly enjoyed it and recommend visiting if you are already in Canela.

The park is quite far from Canela and is not accessible by public transport. Only gravel road from Caracol park coes there but there are magnificent scenes yvown on postcards and it is worth visitibg. The entrance is much lower comparing Caracol and there are longer possible trips in quiet nature.

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, 4 h must be enough. The road is not paved, but is in good condition.

The walk down to the river cai is excellent and the waterfall amazing. The park itself is so much more relaxing than caracol though takes a bit longer to get to. The lookouts are absolutely amazing also and there are quite a few of them

Worth a visit, specially if you have time to spend there and even better if you are fit enough to walk up and down the trails!

Beautiful view. Went there on a drizzly day and had the place to ourselves with just the mists amidst the valleys, stunning. It had rained heavily the days before so we couldn't go down to the river itself, but even without this it was worth the R$8 each. The normal tours or buses don't go here so you'll have to... More

When you enter the park by car, after a reasonable drive through beatifull landscapes on the continuation of the Caracol road, which is partly unpaved, you don't even imagine the beauty of the view from the belvederes located inside the park. From all of them, you see the meandering river well below in the valley, and the forests and hills... More
