Chapada dos Guimaraes National Park, Chapada dos Guimaraes
(4.5/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Me and my wife in chapada do the trail of waterfalls. Was atypical because it rained a LOT.. the guide never got so much rain it, but it was good because we saw waterfalls in a way that few see.. with plenty of water.. worth the ride.

  • few places give you so much beauty of nature together, but unfortunately the infrastructure leaves much to be desired, but still worth it,
