  • Terrific National park. Hard to get to, which means fewer crowds, not as many tourists. We picked up a local guide for $30 per day. He told us about all the places we could visit, and from there, we picked the spots. Highly recommended for the VERY adventurous. Gostamos muito o passeio para burracão. Cachoeira enorme. Dava parta mergulhar e pular. Muito legal.
  • Amazing national park with great hiking, thousand foot waterfalls that dissolve into mist, and more. There are caves in the area with beautiful formations. Highly recommended.
  • Tons of great hiking trails. Exhausting but very rewarding.
  • The Park is gorgeous! I wish one could just trek freely without guides. They are waaay too expensive and completely unnecessary :P
  • Show!
