Tours and Inns at the Serra do Cipó – Minas Gerais, Brazil
The researches done on the Brazilian ecotourism potential and hospitality infrastructure point out to the Serra do Cipó like an excellent destination for national and international ecotourism travellers.
Since the asphalt application between the capital and the Serra, the visitations to the national park and the near village have multiplied. With this improvement also changed the profile of the visitors and the accommodations. The whole region passed through a profound process of transformation. In the 1990ths ithe destination was known between adventurers, backpackers and climbers as the secret paradise of the Brazilian backwoods, because it was not explored touristy and because of the highest concentration of waterfalls in the whole state.
Today the Serra do Cipó represents the most visited leisure destination near to the capital Belo Horizonte and in the whole state of Minas Gerais. A lot of habitants of the capital spend their weekends and holydays here. The visitor can choose between holyday houses, inns and luxury spas in the village and outside.
We recommend the inns outside the village for adventurers, nature lovers and radical sports fans. Some are only accessible by mud roads, like the Tabuleiro village. The Tabuleiro waterfall is with his fall of 273 meters the third highest waterfall in Brazil (City: Conceição do Mato Dentro, MG).
