Tour to the Rain Forest

This six hour tour leaves at 11:00 am from Parati and goes into the beautiful surroundings of the National Florest of Serra da Bocaina. The first stop is at the old distillery at Cachaca where you can see the production of, and sample of traditional Brazilian spirit, Cachaca.

Afterwards you are driven the 5km to a clear waterfall - Tobogan - where you may take the opportunity to slide down the exciting natural "waterslide" which is formed by a smooth 30m rock face. (At your own risk!) After this you travel to an old farm at Murycana and take a twenty minute trek to another beautiful waterfall - Poço Ingles - set in the best preserved part of this charming rainforest, literally a haven for flora and fauna, and then onto another waterfall, Pedra branca.

Depending on the time we either eat lunch here or slightly later at the Pereque river at a picturesque restaurant. The tour returns to Jabaquara beach before stopping at the four hundred year old fort, and then returning to Parati. Included in the price are the admission fee to the farm, binoculars, mineral water and insect repellent the need should arise!! (Lunch is not included). All tours are guided by an experienced guide, with historical and ecological material about that region.
