  • Ride quiet! Some shops of handicrafts ... but what else delights is the natural beauty of the Park. An incredible view to the Valley and to the waterfall! The staircase is closed for maintenance, so we can't get down. Worth a quick visit.

  • The Park is beautiful, well organized and flagged. Have a party that sells souvenirs with good prices.

  • Although some parts of the Park are restricted to reform, visit the Park brought us good memories because of beautiful natural landscapes.

  • Obra de Deus!!!
  • Great park. The waterfall is awesome. There are BBQs there and you can do some bushwalking. Good for families.
  • Vistas lindas
  • Passeio de trem é ridículo. 12 reais por 2 minutos. Emboscada para turista. Prefira as atrações grátis que o parque oferece.
  • Excelente estrutura e ótimo lugar para passeios
