(& the cave snorkeling) This is the slickest tourist operation that we experienced in the Chapada. Nothing more than you find at tourist places around the world, but a bit jarring compared to other places in the Chapada. Make your own call as to what's...More

First of be aware there have been problems with 'esquistossomose' (a very problematic disease caused by infection with freshwater parasitic worms) in the past. Personally I would NEVER swim there.

This seems to be on every tour agency's agenda. I would not recommend this as being part of your top 6-7 places to visit. It's expensive, and what you get is fairly limited. R$40 per person to enter, another R$40 to go snorkeling (most in...More

Crystal clear water and a refreshing place to cool off. It's far from a hidden gem however. Full of people and obviously a money maker spot. Buuuut at the same time I understand...it is absolutely beautiful.

The area includes two caves -Gruta Azul (which is beautiful and untouchable) and Pratinha (which you can enter for 40 R$ with a snorkel). It is totally worth it paying the extra money to dive into the cave. It is also possible to pay extra...More

Crowed place with a lot of trash on the ground and a incredible noisy screaming people everywhere. It is a family lake park, but badly maintained. Has two incredible caves, one cave has a fantastic view and you cannot go in. The other you can...More

It's very beautiful there. It's only a shame it's owned bij a politics family who has been controling the region for years. You have to pay them to get in.
