From bathing in hot springs to trekking along hilly trails, Serra de Caldas state park is a must-see outdoor mecca. Rock walls along the park's sides and a hill at the base of the mountain clearly divide this rural escape from the nearby urban areas and is easily accessible from the city. Established in 1970 to protect the basin area that is used for collecting of rainwater and that fuels the thermal springs, the park was this lovingly restored and is now a natural habitat. The oval-shaped park covers an area of around 123 sq km (1.324 sq ft) and a vast plateau at its peak.

  • We made the tracks, the same well accessible, we went with a two year old child. On the day, the waterfalls were dry but still the place is beautiful and would recommend the visitation.

  • I paid a monkey! In the dry season the two waterfalls disappear. There are two main trails, well signposted, easy/medium, culminating with waterfalls. The entrance to the Park and the small collection are interesting. Helpful staff. Easy access.

  • get ready to walk, two very good trails for walking, a pity that the drought this time of year had no waterfall. all well signposted. If you can go during the waters, with fitness and a camera to take lots of pictures.
