Chapada dos Guimaraes National Park, Chapada dos Guimaraes

Chapada is a Brazilian word that means a region of steep cliffs, usually at the edge of a plateau, and it is for these geological formations that Chapada dos Guimaraes National Park is named. With so many of these red, rock formations, panoramic vistas and cascading waterfalls abound. As you explore the park, you will find the dense rain forest gives way suddenly to Cerrado--vast tropical savanna--, and vice versa, like stepping into another world. Explore the park's cave systems, stand at the geographical center of South America, visit the brilliant blue lake which gets its color from microscopic bacteria, or simply enjoy the various flora and fauna, including tropical birds such as macaws and king vultures. A visit to Chapada dos Guimaraes National Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Chapada dos Guimaraes holiday site to plot your vacation.

  • The place is magnificent, but the entrance to the Park to a place considered national postcard has to improve.

  • A lot of expectations to meet. Could be better taken care of by being a great looking site for visitation.

  • A park like many others, hills, cliffs, small canyons and waterfalls which would be more beautiful if its waters were clean. In most places I've been, there was a lot of dirt, because as always a lot of people don't respect these locations. I've seen a lot of places like this all over Brazil and I confess I actually wasted didn't surprise me, but worth knowing.
