Availability: Year round
First, we visit a great waterfall with a nice natural pool at the Devil’s Pool. Afterwards, we’ll head to Lapa Doce cave to view stalactites and stalagmites. Lapa Doce is part of a 42 km system of caves, however only 850 meters are currently open to the public. The visit to the Lapa Doce Cave starts with a steep descent down a trail and stairs. The route is not difficult and can be traversed by any visitor without much difficulty. After ten minutes of walking, tourists arrive at the mouth of the cave and start walking inland in search of the wonderful formations of speleothems, stalactites, and stalagmites. Everyone has an individual lantern so they can observe the beauties at their own pace.
The route inside the cave begins with a descent of 70 meters. After the initial descent, visitors arrive at a large hall full of beautiful limestone formations. All along the route, tourists are accompanied by local guides. The exit, through another opening of the cave, requires a little bit of breath in the climb. It’s a great excuse to stop and take the last pictures before you leave! We’ll enjoy lunch at Lapa Doce and then head to Pratinha, a natural beach with beautiful blue crystalline waters.
The tour to Fazenda Pratinha includes both the Blue Grotto and the Pratinha Cave. Located in a private property in the municipality of Iraquara, you’ll want to take many photos of this idyllic place. The visit to the Blue Grotto will be very quick and the place is only open for observation. Tourists are not allowed to swim in the cave. Enjoy the strategically positioned stone facing the water and record this spectacle of nature.
Finally, we’ll climb Pai Inácio Hill. It is not a very difficult hike and takes about twenty minutes to reach the top. When walking through the rocks at the top of Pai Inácio, be sure to notice the shapes drawn by the water between the rocks. With luck (and some tips from the guide) you will find the heart that is a symbol of the place. A beautiful location for a romantic portrait.
Once we descend, we’ll head back to Lencois, Brazil after a very full day and an abundance of photos and memories!
