Pack your bags and prepare for sanctuary at Santuario do Caraca, where you can rent a room at the boarding-school-turned-hostel and stay up after dark to watch the maned wolves wander into the courtyard. Every morning you'll awake to the mist sneaking away from peaks that push themselves free from the jungle mountains. At the center of the reserve you'll find a cathedral tower looming above the protected grounds. The tower is anything by sinister; in fact, the local Padre (father, or priest) greets you with a smile and leads you into the cathedral's rustic interior. No pomp and circumstance here, only simple arches that don't compete with the natural beauty surrounding the location. Hiking trails around the cathedral and the old boarding school give you access to a diverse flora and fauna, you may even see an armadillo or get engulfed by a barrage of butterflies.

Santuario do Caraca Reviews
Não sabia de sua existência até meu sogro contar passagens de sua juventude lá, decidimos conhecer e foi ótimo, local lindo e bem preservado, cobra ingresso mas vale a pena. Muitas atrações e lugares ... more »I did not know of its existence until my father-in-law told passages of his youth there, we decided to know and was great, beautiful place and well preserved, snake ticket but worth it. Many attractions and places to know, we love. Several waterfalls, swimming pool and lookers. Even with a baby you have nice places to see.
Local de hospedaria simples, mas agradável. Para ter contato com a natureza e ver o Lobo Guará. Trilhas ecológicas, com cachoeiras more »Simple but pleasant hostel location. To have contact with nature and see the Wolf Guará. Ecological trails, with waterfalls
I love this place so much, there are no words to express it! Caraça carries so much history and makes you connect with nature and with yourself. The treks are beautiful and accessible, the grounds are quiet and peaceful, the food is delicious, the staff and priests are lovely. Amazing place!
Amazing place in the middle of the nature. Very quiet, perfect for a short stay. You'll enjoy the most of the park from there. Diner / Lunch and Breakfast are very good (served in the old monk's rooms)
