A beautiful place to visit and to learn more about caves and nature. The guides are very polited and respectful. Since you're there, go to the museum inside the park area and learn more and more with Erika's help.

This cave is not huge, but quite spectacular. Over 500 meters in length with amazing formations. (Reminder - Stalactites hang from the ceiling, the other ones are stalagmites....) Reasonably priced, easily accessible, and ample parking. The pavilion at the state park is very nice with...More

One cannot believe that nature can form this kind of things with water ! They give the guests a lot of access to places that probably we can´t see around the world. The food is average, the restrooms are average.

This cavern is fantastic... If you like to have experiences with nature, supported by a good staff and very well planed visit, you should go there!

Make sure you book as we arrived at two and due to a school trip could not get in. It was booked for one hour by school trip and closed at four!

Hello David, it costs R$15 (around 5 euros) to enter. If you ask me, this isn't really worth the visit. I would recommend Gruta do Maquiné or Gruta Rei do Mato, which are both still close to Belo Horizonte.
