  • In 2017 Carnival went on 6 people to Ibitipoca. The road between Lima Duarte and Conceição de Ibitipoca is pretty bad, especially when it rains, and had been raining the night before, so we took some parts more difficult. The Park is very well maintained, with some 50 internal vacancies and a long road where the cars are out for coming after 50. Be careful not to be too late, because they enter just 1200 per day, and this number is soon shot in sunny holidays. The walks in the Park are excellent, made on the first day the water Route, and on the second day the Sky window. Both beautiful, being the second however quite tiring. The town is cute, some good restaurants and good hostels.

  • Beautiful place, clean, well monitored, have a restaurant inside the Park. Need to get waaaay too early to ensure a parking space and even in the Park, because it has a limit of people per day (which is very good). Are 3 primcipais circuits and the Sky window indicates-go with tab. Oh, to have a car to go up hilly roads and not paved. When it arrives, it's all worth it!

  • Ibitipoca is a park that I really like. Known him a few years and recommend by your natural beauty, the walks that lead us to incredible scenery. It pays to know the window of heaven, Cachoeirinha and the peak of the Pawn. All the attractions are amazing for those who like this kind of ride.
