    Excellent leisure option for singles, married couples and families. The Park is only accessible by dirt road with few conditions, so high (crossover) cars, SUVs, jeeps and vans are recommended, but not essential. What you can't miss are bottles of water and snacks, because there is nothing to sell in the Park. Spend at least 3 hours, until the whole day for the ride.

    We were first in the Park aparados da serra and then when we got back to town I saw a sign indicating access to itaimbezinho Canyon in the Park of the serra geral but in GPS showed that had to get RS 0-20, I went to inform a gas station and the attendant said that such access existed the olden days and today's Road at the entrance of the city with sign. The path is well floor of Celtic Vijay Singh arrived, site has information center with volunteers to take questions, toilets, parking, rest all free. On the way back we stopped at a snack bar with style rustico that I don't remember the name but it had a very good. Recommend the Park and the attractions of the place.

    The Serra Geral National Park, where is located the Itaimbezinho Canyon is a great place for nature lovers. Is open to visitation all year round, from Tuesday to Sunday and on Monday preceding national holidays. Easy road access from Cambará do Sul.

    The Park houses the Canyon Fortaleza is a location of great beauty. A must go up the trail that leads to the top of the Canyon, where you can view the entire hilly region to the coastal lagoons. The access road is terrible. Structure on the site simply does not exist. No snack bar and without bathrooms. Without any protection at the fringes of the depths, making it necessary to take extra care, especially if you're with children or people with difficulty in movements such as the elderly. Parking in front of the beginning of the trails. Taking the mishaps of the way to get there, the place itself is amazing and indescribable beauty. Just being there to understand the greatness.

    I went up the road that starts in the city of Praia Grande. The path is bad, who has low suspension vehicle, it's risky to stay on the road. Can't find no support, there is a building called House of stone Sophisticated, with excellent parking, without any professional to give care. Go out the trails are well marked. The look is wonderful. Pity that the Governments of the two States don't give a minimum to improve tourism.

Where to stay in Cambara do Sul

A relatively small city, Cambara do Sul features a compact town core scattered with a number of smaller guesthouses, pensiones, and family-run bed and breakfasts. These tend to be on the more economical side and make solid options for travelers on a lower budget. Farther from town, the countryside features a range of ecohotels and lodges; these facilities, generally more upscale, boast easy access to the surrounding natural landscape of lakes, hills, and forests. However, keep in mind that you'll likely need a car to get around efficiently in this case.
