Although it is very easy to get there, the way is somewhat hidden. The cave itself is wonderfull, and visits have necessarily to be guided (so you need to wait for a guide to become available)

Rei do mato are the old, beautiful caves. well preserved and beutiflly lightened inside. less than 100 km from Belo horizonte. A guide takes you inside and explain the history of caves. Caves are full of crystal rocks and one could see the various stones.

This is actually in Sete Lagoas, another city outside BH. You'll have to join a guided tour (and you may have to wait a little bit to join one), the only way to visit the cave.
