  • Atlantic forest preserved. Worth the visit! Leaving wedge, are 20 km on dirt road, but in good condition, the steepest stretches have pavement. Along the way there are places selling crafts, but as I went on a Wednesday were all closed. Arriving at the Park, all very organized, there is no charge for admission, only necessary identification with ID at the entrance. There are several options of long tracks, but to these scheduling and monitoring is needed, but there is a trail of 1700 mts that the visitor can do alone. It is well signposted and runs round the Paraibuna River, starting at the waterfall that is right in front of the headquarters of the Park, where bathing is allowed.

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.
