  • The Canyons of the Monte Negro are of the most beautiful that exists. Advised allocating at least two days to visit him because there will be time of day that happens to "trick" and he is practically hidden. Make a reservation in one of the hostels that are close, take a ride on horseback or on foot even. Short all the charm of nature.

  • Lovely place, a breathtaking landscape, access takes place via dirt road, has two gates that we need to open and close. Always keep closed due to cattle raised at the site. We need to have this respect because the property is private. walking is pretty easy to get to the peak. If you're going to drive until a piece, passing through the gates and small pontilhoes after we finished the walk.
