It was a rainy day when we decided to visit this place. It was OK but nothing too fancy. We saw some mandioca and pineaplle plants and some of the souvenirs made by the local guaranies.

A few of us came to visit this community of around 450 people who have been relocated by the government as their land is now unavailable to them. They have 300 hectares to grow crops, feed their families, kids go to school etc. our guide was lovely and although quite shy as many of the people are here, he was helpful and kind. The people are proud of their culture and their history and that was conveyed by our interpreter. Our guide showed us the traps and snares they still use today to catch quail, armadillo and other creatures. The highlight was when he allowed us to snap photos of his girls. He has 5 and four of them were playing nearby. They were shy but charmed by our easy going nature. He also brought us out his brand new baby boy. Yes 6 kids at the age of 45 to his beloved partner. He was one proud daddy. Don’t expect much here. It’s. Basic and simple because that’s how they live. Be respectful and conscious of their culture. Wheelchair friendly. Kid friendly. Good parking. Small fee to enter which goes back into the community. I tipped this man because of his generosity, sincerity and knowledge that he freely shared. This is why I travel .....…

While many guarani have left for the big city. There are a number of people left in the indigenous community ranging from young to very old. I found the way these people rely on each very heart warming but I fear for what will happen for the next generation.
