  • This is a low key place. It is a working distillery, but in July not much is going on. The staff did a nice job with a simple tour, and were very helpful at the tasting area - gift shop afterwards...  more »

  • It's a beautiful place with a massive waterfall that you can actually get to the base. They advertise animals, such as monkeys and other native creatures, but I couldn't find any. You pay $15 per person if you want to go to their trails and to the waterfall. An extra $20 can buy you some archery practice. An extra $30 can buy you some gun practice. You can taste their traditional brazilian drink called "cachaça" (ka-sha-sah), which has 40% alcohol. You can also understand how the drink is made. They provide a booze bus to pick you up/drop off at the hotel if you want to try the drinks (cost varies). The roads there are unpaved with lots of potholes, so prepare your car for a dirt/dust fest. No one speaks English there.
  • Super solicitous attendants, good cachaças but what won my heart was the fig liqueur. For those who collect there are beautiful shot glasses.
