  • Visit the Grotto that was part of the script in the ATV. The site has no infrastructure, just a sort of "sale" to buy a soda or snack, but it's pretty simple. I don't know if the problem was the guide who was with us, but they didn't tell us anything about the history of the place or anything. The cave is not pretty, have graffiti and there's nothing else to do. Just go there meet and leave was not a nice experience. It is nice feeling to be there, where the slaves hid when fleeing, be there "by visiting a story", but outside the cave, look there's nothing different, the site is badly insulated and we couldn't find a way to climb on top of the cave to have another view of the place. Summary, pay $40 more for the tour that included a visit to the cave of Creoles, expecting to do something different but, in my opinion, not worth it, we're not even 10 minutes in this place as long as we climbed up her, we go in, we climbed on the rocks inside and, after we take some pictures, we went back to the ATV. Maybe it's something like more unconditional lovers of history. For those who, like us, have a higher profile back the adventures, the trip left a lot to be desired.

  • Without a lot of structure, where a family who live on site makes the times. Has the name because that is where the fugitive slaves hid. Is not too large.

  • Worth the visit going to frame for the ride becomes more fun. Who has never been in a cave, you will find the unusual location. There is a tour guide at the location that can of an overview of the importance of the site for blacks. However, quickly, pay me to speak up because they just go and see the place it's not funny at all. Quickly, it's called "Cave of Spooks" because all slaves, outlaws, gentlemen of the coffee farm of SP, gathered in this cave creating a "quilombola" pole of passage to a better place. And, in fact, with the graffiti (Yes, Campos do Jordão doesn't care in preserving the site) there are drawings and some writings that date back to the time of slavery in Brazil. Also, don't wait for a structure that will be a beautiful spot for a snack. What there is is a makeshift place to eat something with Porta potty.

  • It's just a grotto, a huge stone, but who likes adventure can climb the rocks and go through inside of them is not very suitable for children, since it requires a level of caution and careful not to hurt yourself because time and slippery. Good ride. Has a good diner great snacks.

  • Pierced. Is poorly preserved, the access road is bad is the very attraction thrills not so much.

  • . The cave has nothing special. What counts is the walk through the trails of Campos do Jordão

  • Recommended only for 4 x 4 cars, and with time left, the road is more interesting than the site itself.
