You can explore several caves, some of which are filled with stalactites and stalagmites. If you choose to join a cave tour, make sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring a change of dry clothes, as you will need to get wet in order to reach deeper areas of these underground caverns.

  • The trails that lead to the caves and the most beautiful waterfalls, are really tiring and who wants to see this wonder of nature has to be prepared to walk. The trick is, always go with light clothes and comfortable, it dries quickly, because the gene get wet all the time, a good pair of sneakers, that old and that doesn't give you pain, very repellent, sunscreen and a cap or hat, that when not with the helmet. Have a small and lightweight backpack with water, and bars or cookie is also a good tip. Nature is beautiful, but is wild, and who wants to meet the Park must have a good dose of courage. Worth every second, because the air is extremely clean, the water is pure, and the landscape is charming.

  • The place is wonderful for those seeking contact with nature, no doubt felt closer to God. Caves, trails and waterfalls all I was looking for and waiting for. A tip is to schedule in advance with the monitor, since all tours are required to monitor.

  • Excellent location for activities with the nature, to make the trails, explore the caves, making ball cross in the River, or simply observe the biodiversity, Apiaí, in its various cores, has activities to suit all tastes, but in General, the city and the people still retain that simple and hospitable inside. The guides generally are quite talkative, and lead the activities according to the tastes and the fitness of the people, always with a lot of security! Contact the nature, and yourself, by visiting these beautiful works of art!
