  • Ideal place for those who like to go hiking. Trails in 3 levels to practice and infrastructure support and guidance. Never forget to take your water to moisturize and light foods, for the longer trails and steep a staff very helpful.

  • It's hard to get, there are over 20 km of dirt road, with no major upsets. Along the path we find snakes and lizards on the track. Beautiful park, well cared for and preserved. Entry with security control headquarters with toilets clean and well prepared and trained guides. The playground of the front child is new and very thorough. The front Waterfall is a sight.

Where to stay in Cunha

A smattering of accommodations exists in the main urban area of the city, with family-run pousadas (guesthouses) and basic hotels the main options for visitors. Because so much of the city's tourism relies on its surrounding areas of green hills and rocky gorges, take a look at the options along the main road, Rod. Paulo Virginio. The north-south road stretches out into the wilder parts of the region and is dotted with interesting and comfortable accommodations, including boutique pousadas, cabins, campsites, and rental villas.
