Vale das Araras, Cavalcante

#7 of 9 in Things to do in Cavalcante
Vale das Araras is a private reserve nestled within a valley with its macaws. An easy forest trail leads to the waterfall that is the main attraction. Though it is medium height, its pools are shallow and you can bathe without fear. Sit on a rock by the waterfall to sunbathe, enjoy the sound of the fall or the hum of the river, and enjoy the birds’ songs. The complex has eight boutique cottages, a rustic restaurant, a small pool, and sauna. The cottages are clean and well-equipped, but purely for those looking for contact with nature and nothing else, since there are no TVs or wifi. Since the area is private, there is an entry fee. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Cavalcante holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Vale das Araras and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Not I stayed there. Just went to swim in the afternoon. You pay for the entry, and you have the right to spend the whole day there. There's nothing more beyond the waterfall and small lakes that form around it. The landscape is beautiful. A gazebo is surrounded of woods grown up, which is great for nature but does not correspond to a viewpoint. Even better is go to main waterfall and enjoy the full sun, as heat stroke there is pretty good.

  • Waterfall within easy reach. The trail is very quiet. There is indication for all the way, including plates with explanations of the flora and fauna. It's lovely! Worth every meter of the 1,700 traversed.

  • Pousada with waterfall within the property, which in my opinion thanks for the track, but it's not a beautiful waterfall. We don't pay attention at the time of booking and when we get there we found we had no TV, internet or hair dryer. The internet or at the reception we got and how our ceulares are of course and just get there ALIVE we're incommunicado for a few days, lol. The breakfast left much to be desired, few options and on the last day. However serve dinner, which is good since the city has few options.
