Nice nature

A very nice and well kept National park, with some beautiful trails and nice falls. Worth a stride with the whole family and kids. Must be a sunny day. Otherwise, do not go.

It offers a amazing view of the water fall, but because a pine tree felt on the stairs and broke it down I couldn't visit the bottom of the waterfall. This was annoying cause there isn't much more to do there. I would still do it.

This is a small park, mainly dedicated to the Cascata do Caracol, a lovely waterfall, surrounded by with native vegetation. Unfotunately the main stairway to the bottom of the fall is closed. The remaining trails are not demanding and have nice views.

And go down the steps. They are officially closed but its easy enough to jump over the barriers and head down to the base of the waterfall. Its a bit of a hike though so only if you aint a couch potato.

You take an astonishingly beautiful waterfall, and create all sorts of trails, restaurants, panoramic towers, cable carts. From my point of view, you loose the natural wonder it represents.

Really beautiful Araucaria forest with paved trails and lookout and a great watch tower with elevator, but also small forest trails- 'silent trail'; food available

A small park to know in some minutes. Staps of acsess are closed now. You have to pay R$18,00. Would be better and more explored.

This is a place to have an unforgettable view. Place to have a lot of photos with your family. The price is not so cheap but worth it.

Price is not adequate for the place, even if the landscape is beautiful. I won't recommend going there to anyone.

At 18 BR real per person to go in, you wouldn't expect to have to pay another 24 BR real to go up a tower for a full view of the park. Map given at entrance is useless as most tracks aren't actually there. Steps to go down see the waterfalls and the so-called "historic centre" are free, but closed.
