Must see, great place, memorial view of waterfall, short trials along the river. Pure nature, natural gardens, peaceful. The steps to the bottom of the fall were closed for maintenance, but even so worth it.

The park.is really beautiful with nice short trails. Too bad the steps to the bottom of the fall were closed for maintenance. The price is a bit too much (18 per person), but they keep good care of the place.

The Caracol state park is a must see for sure! Great spot for pictures! It's better to go on a sunny day!

This place offers a beautiful waterfall view, as well as natural garden sections. You can buy local artesanal souvenirs, as well as find some cafeterias in different sections of the park. For people inclined to natural sight seeing, this is surely a good option while...More

I was very impressed with Caracol State Park, which is just outside the Canela city limits. For such a small park, it had very nice paved trails, marked dirt trails, a couple overlooks to an amazing waterfall, and a stairwell all the way down to...More

Really good sights and solid tracks for a pleasant walk. A great place to get in contact with the wild life.

It offers a amazing view of the water fall, but because a pine tree felt on the stairs and broke it down I couldn't visit the bottom of the waterfall. This was annoying cause there isn't much more to do there. I would still do...More

A very nice and well kept National park, with some beautiful trails and nice falls. Worth a stride with the whole family and kids. Must be a sunny day. Otherwise, do not go.

This is a small park, mainly dedicated to the Cascata do Caracol, a lovely waterfall, surrounded by with native vegetation. Unfotunately the main stairway to the bottom of the fall is closed. The remaining trails are not demanding and have nice views.

And go down the steps. They are officially closed but its easy enough to jump over the barriers and head down to the base of the waterfall. Its a bit of a hike though so only if you aint a couch potato.

Take the bus from the Gramado Rodoviaria to the Canela one. Swap there into a collectivo (forgot what they call them in Brazil) to the park. Those come around every 15-20 minutes. There's no Uber there, so a taxi is your... More

É tranquilo visitar o parque com criança pequena (5 anos)? Nem penso em descer as tais escadas até a base da cachoeira... Tem restaurante com qualidade para almoço?
