  • Is a great program for a Sunday in family with children. A large outdoor area to the delight of the children. Two restaurants with affordable prices. The road that connects the city of Diamantina Biribiri village is mud, but you can go with ordinary car. Should only have attention. Are some 15. Currently has two restaurants: one a la carte and another kilo. Both local food.

  • Great place to relax in the Park has several waterfalls, including the crystals and the sentry, who is more comfortable to carry children. The village is a charm, has two restaurants, the Adilson and the Raymond without arm ", which top. I was staying at the Inn that's in the village, simple but very quiet, excellent service from the owners and their employees. For those who like cycling recommend, take the bike.

  • the village is a nice place, worth knowing; but the Posada is very bad, which made the ride terrible. I was told by the staff of the Inn that could swim in waterfall and what was my surprise when I arrived at the top of the waterfall and dumping sewage in the water pipe I found (on the site even had a sign warning guests about the danger of contamination). Pousada with high prices, bad breakfast, electric showers disarm in the middle of the bath, problems with the reservation (booked in advance, paid, and I sent the proof, but when I got to my hostel reservation had not been registered). Anyway, many problems that end up making the ride uncomfortable.
