The place is naturally wonderful. With a native forest and beautiful beach.

However, the attractions are not in its best days. Someones are needing a kind of repair bigger than a new painting.

Everything that is sold there, including the entrance fee is expensive and I don't believe that it's fair.

To sum, if you don't know the park and get some good price (in your opinion), I think you will like. If you already know the place, one time is more than enough.

The only good thing about the place is the fact it provides so much employment to locals. It's good for the local economy: a deserted beach, however idyllic, does not create many jobs. This monstrosity, on the other hand, must employ a good 200+ in an extremely efficient effort to liberate its patrons of oodles of cash through a number of clever wheezes. Good for them. The irony of 2500+ people having paid BRL85 ea. to be living it up here for a day, metres from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, all ignoring said free beach in favour of plastic manufactured aqua-tainment, queuing for hours for split-second rides to a soul-twisting soundtrack of vanilla-brasil-pop, appears to be entirely lost on all the visitors, except for those few to be found sat in the shade of the almond trees gazing wistfully through the wire fence out to sea...
The kids, they loved it. Sometimes you just have to bury your principles, swallow your pride, shut your eyes and hit the water slides...

We made friends with this other family and hung out at the beach while the kids roamed the park stopping by every hour for head count. Great place to go with the family!

Not value for money, Very expensive to get in and certainly not worth it.
