A good walk with plenty of waterfalls to view. Unfortunately we were a bit limited time wise but it was still a great experience. The trails were suitable for most people with only a few little tricky points. Managed to see a few monkeys, who climbed over for a closer visit, and a toucan. Would be great come Spring/Summer

Visiting during the week, and during low season was absolutely awesome. The first day, I hiked to "Los tres picos" and did not see a single person the whole day. The second day I saw 2 people. The trails are relatively well marked and the map is pretty good. Great way to get away for a few days.

Everything organized, clean, beautiful. You can visit a little museum and go down to see the lake, but for other tracks you have to spend a period walking or stay overnight. For that it must be 5 stars.

Went several times to the park, to climb the peaks, but also to hike around. There are many hikes you can do to the waterfalls. A must do when you are in the area. Some hikes require a guide.

Not many foreign turists find their way to this beautiful park not far from Rio de Janeiro or Sao Paulo. It is really worth a visit. There are many birds and amazing hiking paths, that goes deep into the forrest but are still well marked. In the high parts you can also go climbing.
