Where is it?


We are on top of the Mantiqueira mountain range, which includes some of the highest peaks in Brazil, including "Pedra da Mina" which is the 4th highest. The trip to either Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo (state capitals) takes only 3 hours. Closer by there are beach towns like Paraty and Angra dos Reis, both in the Rio de Janeiro State.

Buzzy restaurants
Andrea restaurant, where a tasty meal costs about US$3
Cool bars
Usually very quiet, except during a few festive seasons, like carnival
Cozy cafés
CAfé Apolo
Retail therapy
There are handcrafts sold in various spots around town
Bit of culture
There is a steam train, only for tourism, that travels through the mountains almost daily
Walks in the park
Pedra da MIna (2700 m) is a peak that can be achieved in about 4 hours, from the point where the trail initiates , which is 20 km from my house)
Spot of exercise
I love to cycle to the National Forest and refresh on the cascade
Day tripping
São Lourenço is a nearby town, also in the Sate of Minas Gerais, which is much larger and offers attractions like restaurants and a SPA, inside "Parque das Águas" (Water Park), where there are various types of mineral waters to taste and fine facilities for sauna, massage and much more.
