It was an incredible experience, in which I was able to connect with nature and create very interesting content for Vale Encantado. Marinho was an excellent host, every day he prepared delicious food and his company was very pleasant. The place is really magical and has a lot to teach us.

Eu achei o local distante de tudo, não há meios de transporte, somente o carro do anfitrião! Ele sozinho não consegue mostrar a região, e sair sozinha na mata pode ser perigoso! acabei não conhecendo os lugares que gostaria! De resto foi bom o contato com a natureza!
