Really nice and chill place in the middle of nowhere. The groups are small and the people really friendly and nice. The gruta has beautiful shapes and colores. The only downgrade is, that they just explain everything in portugues, but its ok. There is also...More

The cave is beautiful, and it's close to Belo Horizonte, so you should consider visiting it if you are travelling to Belo Horizonte. Parque Estadual do Sumidouro is also nearby and you get a discount if you buy both tours together (they are both guided...More

The cave is located just a few miles from the city of Lagoa Santa, so it is possible to have lunch in this city before visiting the cave. There are also some restaurants on the way to the cave that serves regional food. The place...More

A beautiful place to visit and to learn more about caves and nature. The guides are very polited and respectful. Since you're there, go to the museum inside the park area and learn more and more with Erika's help.

This cave is not huge, but quite spectacular. Over 500 meters in length with amazing formations. (Reminder - Stalactites hang from the ceiling, the other ones are stalagmites....) Reasonably priced, easily accessible, and ample parking. The pavilion at the state park is very nice with...More

This is a nice place to visit. You can know the history of the Caves and the rock formations. Only I don't really think it's worth it if you're far away. Like it's a really short visit. Less than an hour I would say in...More

One cannot believe that nature can form this kind of things with water ! They give the guests a lot of access to places that probably we can´t see around the world. The food is average, the restrooms are average.

Hello David, it costs R$15 (around 5 euros) to enter. If you ask me, this isn't really worth the visit. I would recommend Gruta do Maquiné or Gruta Rei do Mato, which are both still close to Belo Horizonte.
