  • Hard to believe the cave is still in the process of discovery. Recently free of illegal occupation, is on a private property and can only visited with guides who charge ten reais per person. Difficult access for the elderly and small children. Impossible for wheelchair users.

  • Great ride. Marquinhos guide full of information and history. Tourism aware to the cave's fortifying himself for a few years, through the Biotrópicos Institute. There is a fee of 10.00 R$ per person for entrance into the cave without Guide. A quiet, affordable and safe visit. There is a place to stop the car at the entrance of the cave. We believe it's enjoyed more effectively accompanied by the Guide.

  • At the entrance, we are greeted by a wall of rock, that they look like the gargoyles of Notre Dame, let's move and these gargoyles, turn into rabbits, chickens, dogs and birds. A natural amphitheatre, a wall as smooth and as well cut that appears to have been made to the laser. A cave that according to the position, can view the map of Brazil and even South America. The only thing that messed up, was the lack of a restaurant and bathrooms, which would make it a lot. Access also leaves something to be desired.
