With our recent wildlife-spotting success, we figured we could at least spot some monkeys at a national reserve. These are supposed to be the largest primates in the Americas, standing 1.5 meters tall. And, the rarest.
Well, at least we heard them.
Don’t try to visit Rppn Feliciano Miguel Abdala without an invitation. You can get in… but it’s just you and the snakes.
Reconsider your footwear options when hiking in Brazil. Giant black snakes will freak you out if you’re wearing flip flops.
Caratinga is not a good place to visit. Trust us.
Ipanema is only marginally better – at least it’s smaller. There’s a decent lunch buffet at the gas station, and the owner used to live in Boston.
Coffee. Finally, this is where it’s at.
Brazil has lots of National Parks that seem to be permanently closed without for prior reservations… and no camping.
We went by ‘Pedra Azul’. No access without a guide and no camping permitted. Seems to defeat the purpose – to us anyway.
Now, it’s good to be back on the coast.
