Traveler Reviews

  • 01-Sep-2015

    Although the weather was not excellent, the short hike to pedra Bonita summit, and the waterfall grotto was cool. It is not too strenuous, but you should wear hiking shoes. You will do a little climbing on rocks. Heitor was very knowledgeable about the ecology of the environment.
