    Before you go, read many reviews and the people said that the road there was very bad. However, about 2 weeks passed the road tractor and she was very good. Until a car as a Celtic beat well the path there. (Bad road is the one that goes to the Hill of Achyrocline Satureioides). The 20 km of dirt road made in 45 minutes, but because I was a bit brisk. I think it's appropriate to consider some 50 to 60 minutes to go quietly. Anyway, the ride to this core is very worthwhile! Note 10! Did the Rio Bonito, but don't judge it is difficult level. Just don't recommend it for people who are elderly or have reduced mobility really as there are some obstacles in the way. Is not mandatory, but using a specific shoes for trails will help a lot on the way.

    Is a nucleus of the Serra do Mar State Park, where you don't pay for anything. It's all free. Not even the snake Guide for the tour. Are two guided trails and a self-guided. The trail of the waterfalls is the most extensive, being recommended to be part of it with vehicle. This trail is the most worthwhile.

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.
