  • If there's a place I'd come back for sure would be and this wonderful park Ibitipoca. The waterfalls are beautiful, every cave, each visual out of serious, unusual, walk, walk and walk until you reach the window of heaven and worth it. At the entrance to the Park is charged a value per person and the car can be placed in the parking lot of the Park, the same also has restaurant and cafeteria. I'm in love with there and I miss even part of the hike. lol it's worth going early because of the 5:00 pm has mto Thunder and is desperate. RS trip in December, take enough water and food, spent perrengue of 2. Small and cosy town, I was in a super comfortable chalet with the super affordable price, I recommend: the Sun Valley Lodge (if I remember correctly), a wonderful view from the room and still had a covered area with barbecue.

  • I've been several times and I can't get enough of return, with beautiful waterfalls, the region is beautiful for your relief, vegetation and caves, the Park is well signposted, possessing a great Centre for information.

  • I'm sure you've all read here about the beauty of the Park the simplicity of the city but no one talks about is access to this town and Park. I'm posting because I spent a lot of anger to get there! After Lima Duarte initiates a dirt road about 15 km of road bad, after six miles of pavement and dirt road and this is even worse! If you don't have an old car, off road or bike think twice before you go because it can be that your car doesn't return the same from there. To park inside the Park you have to arrive early because there are few spots otherwise will stop outside and have to walk a bit to get to the Park. Then there's chop and leg to walk inside. Maassss ... the Park is gorgeous even!
