Come and experience ecotourism at Boa Esperança Ranch and the charm of the wonderful Mantiqueira Mountains deep in the Atlantic Forest.
Waterfalls, flowers and birds
There are 211 hectares in an area of environmental protection (Mantiqueira Reserve) with an average temperature of 16oC/61oF, rich with Bromelias and Orchids and the region’s birds. There are 7 waterfalls on the ranch, with heights from 3 to 70 meters (10 to 230 feet), which can be visited by the footpaths alongside the three rivers that cross the region (the Boa Vista, the Cambaú and the Onça).
Footpaths and adventure sports
There are various activity options (all with trained guides to accompany you), such as footpaths, bathing at waterfalls, natural hydro-massage pools, horse riding and adventure sports such as abseiling, zip lining (aerial ropeslide) and descents along the rivers and waterfalls, all carried out with safety in first place.
Chalets and Suites
Welcoming rooms, with rustic decoration and hot power-showers. To ensure a good nights sleep, there is a fireplace, a good pillow and a snug eiderdown. The rest is up to you…
Traditional food from the wood stove
Take pleasure in sampling the traditional food of Minas Gerais State, served from the wood stove in our cheerful ranch restaurant, where you will also find the region’s produce, such as trout, honey.
Sauna and heated swimming pool
An exquisite wood-fired sauna with a heated swimming pool. Also the option of a refreshing plunge in the river!
In the evening, before a great night’s sleep in one the chalets or suites on the ranch, it is well worth spending some time under the stars by a waterfall next to a campfire, accompanied by a hot broth typical of the region, or, if you prefer, complementing the warm glow of the fire with a good wine.
