A tour to this park is a must, 20 mins outside the city and it feels like your in the rainforest. Beautiful waterfalls and lovely bbq areas

We did go up to this national park but the high light was see where the hang gliders take off. That was awesome. We have nice national parks in Australia so nothing new there.

Visited the historic chapel (1850s) that is still used for services. Beautiful rain forest near Rio de Janerio. Lush greenery. River. Waterfalls. Hugh trees with fruit as large as watermelons.

Yes, but not very often. It's better to take a private car.

I don't think it's necessary to get a guide. If you're a runner, once you get in the park, follow the signs and see where the running lanes are. There are a few, and some go by beautiful waterfalls. Enjoy it.
