The South Sights

Parque Estadual do Caracol (Caracol State Park)

Updated 06/24/2013

Fodor's Review

The Parque Estadual do Caracol is renowned for its breathtaking 400-foot waterfall that cascades straight down into a horseshoe-shape valley carved out of the basaltic plateau. The park also includes 50 acres of native forests with several well-marked paths, dominated by Paraná pine and an environmental education center for children. The entrance area is somewhat overcrowded with souvenir shops and snack tents and the river water smells a bit polluted, but the tranquil

hikes and stunning waterfall more than make up for this.
