  • We were last there. Fantastic. Has structure to receive visitors. Parking area. We paid for the tickets and we are waiting for a little by the Guide. Are super friendly and attentive. The place is beautiful with the formations, the colours ... you feel the implacable presence of nature.

  • Even though I was born in a town near the Cordisburgo, never having been to Maquiné Grotto. It's a ride worth. The Grotto is huge, the halls are stunning. The structure is very good. But there was an incident that has tempted me to the issue of safety. My parents were also to ride. In the House of 70 years, but are great for your health. My father hit his head on a stalactite and bled a lot. Even with all the warnings tab to people watch (he spoke several times), it's hard you coordinate the attention at some points. You have to watch your step, be looking at the ground and in the air. This problem would be solved if they had those safety helmets.

  • I loved the ride! The cave is beautiful, full of beautiful sculptures of nature. I made the trip by a travel agency of BH. Although the price was not cheap, super recommend. Lunch still in place, a typical mining food delicious. And then we went in the House of Guimarães Rosa.
