  • Magical place, worthy of the movies. A place that opens us to imagination and fill the eyes of such beauty. The site has only the structure site of attraction. How is charged admission to over 800 meters in the parking lot is terrible, causing long queues and congesting the access Street, that by the way is the worst of ponta grossa, just pass a car, full of potholes and badly signposted, the site loses a lot of tourism potential due to the bad access path. Yes, it's really awful, we found several cars with problems on the way due to the access. But the reward comes at the end, the place is magnificent and full of history. The downside is for access, the plus point is for next geólogica training structure.

  • It is a park that has two trails lead to waterfalls: priest's Hole and honeycomb Trail. The main trail, priest's Hole, has a very good access, to go from slipper, and the waterfall is an amazing thing! One of the most beautiful I've ever seen!! Honeycomb track complements the walk, a trail of 20 minutes approximately, passing by several observatories and the view from the priest's Hole on top. At the end of the trail has a waterfall practically deserted. Loved it! The Park has restrooms and a cafeteria. And the entry cost R$16.

  • I went with friends to visit the priest's hole on the day we arrived 30/12/17 around 17:00 hs. The day was cloudy because it rained the day before and on that day in the morning. Upon arriving at the front desk had 2 attendants and security 1, at the time of purchase of the ticket who answered not informed us about the State of the Waterfall. We try to make the traveled the trail and we can't get even half way because to water-intensive and was passing over the bridge of the track, putting at risk the lives of those who risked continue. There was no official or a local guide or even a sign warning the danger or the risk of following the directions in the event of rain or landslide. That's something important because family with children knowing the Park running the risk of accidents or even worse by uncertainty and lack of guidance by local officials. We went back to the reception and tried to warn the danger for maximum people you meet on the way. Tried to speak at the reception about the bad one of the attendant occurred in surprising and grossly responded we should inform us on the internet and on the Facebook page of the Park and even asked: "you do not have internet and not Facebook? If report! Read the newsletter in the lobby! " Note: (did not have any information on input and nothing on facebook) I thought lack of professionalism on her part and along with the other officials responded with irony, until the security contributed imitating speaks of my friend who was trying to find a solution. We asked her name that refused to say and told me to shut up. Our intention was to only find a solution or give us another alternative at least, we had no idea we were going to have this kind of response from them with lack of respect and professionalism. We said was being recorded and said it would enter the justice for recording without permission and also "showed the finger". We left outraged there for the loss of value of the ticket and the way we were treated. We just want to make sure that doesn't happen to anyone else who wants to enjoy the place as would have to be!

  • Me and my friends went to visit the Park on the day we arrived the 30/12/2017 16:50, we bought our tickets and tried to get to the waterfall, which was impossible because the tide was coming in extreme violence and invaded the wooden path that led to the location. Noting that I'm not, I came to Sao Paulo, we had already gone to visit vila velha, where we warned that, in the rain, we wouldn't be able to visit one of the sites. We went back to the entrance and went to talk to the attendants who can't get to the waterfall because the water would break in the path. One of the attendants scoffed at us "you don't have access to the internet? You didn't research these things? You don't have Facebook? The information I gave talks about it ", but the same wasn't delivered or our proof of purchase, much less some informative-in newsletter or Facebook page talks about that. The attendant extolled the voice, told us to shut up, go to sleep and even made obscene gestures. The security guard, was imitating one of my friends. I wonder: If we had tried to access the waterfall, even with the current, and had injured us, would help me with the same rudeness and professionalism with which we were served? Do not sign any document at any time in blaming the danger found on site, pay real-16.00 EACH-to enter, and we left still screaming with one of the attendants. Definitely a place where I wouldn't go back.

  • Very well maintained, with preservation of the forest areas that have been degraded, well built walkways, without steps, which facilitates the visitation for people with mobility problems. There is still a stretch of road that has no runway. Very large parking area, with a variety of grills and lots of trees. I found the entrance to the Park a bit time-consuming as there is a single record and is attended by car 1 time, only when the car is freed the gate will open to the entry of the next car.
