Petar National Park, Apiai

#1 of 6 in Things to do in Apiai
Located in the mountain area full of waterfalls and caves, Petar National Park is home to a variety of exotic plants and animals seldom seen anywhere else in the world. You can hike the park’s many trails, or swim in the natural pools of crystal clear water. Trained guides are available to lead you on an adventure through a world of rare birds, insects, fish, and frogs. 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. Take a look at our Apiai trip planner to schedule your visit to Petar National Park and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • For those who like to adventure: walk through almost untouched nature and little explored caves. Without words. The cave Santana is the "sculptures" is the greatest adventure in the cave of dirty water. On the way we need to go through the Betary River. WONDERFUL Ride.

  • This place is spectacular, there's a big story behind it all there. Cosy place, quiet, full of tracks, tunnels where they were taken gold in ancient peoples. Well worth getting to know. The sunset of mirante do morro do ouro and sensational.

  • We had just one day to meet PETAR and choose the core Santana. On the same day, starting the tour shortly after the 9:00 and ending at 4:00 pm, met the cave Santana (no wet), like Betari River Trail with the Hummingbird cacheiras (cannot enter) and Swallow (and can get), Cave of the coffee plantation (not wet) and dirty water cave (wonderful, wet). The trail is beautiful. We're about six miles across like Betari River from one side to the other. Ideal to go with a good shoe for trail and comfortable to walk on water. The path is not flat, having a few ascents, pretty stone and slippery when the Earth gets wet. We met our guide the day before and we agreed to meet on the website soon at 7:00, since the Ordinance opens at 8:00 and the schedule of tours by order of arrival (we went on a holiday). Is required to be accompanied by a guide to enter. Our guide charged us $100/person and just a couple accompanied us. The entry in the portal costs R$12,00/person. Important to be tennis to get into (and in my opinion take a scarf to put under the helmet, tb item required in the caves and ceded by the Guide). Oh, bring snacks for the trail (doesn't sell anything inside the Park) and flashlight if you want.
