JULY 2005: Breathtaking
For many Belohorizontinos – as residents of the city of Belo Horizonte are called – the Serra do Cipó Park is a very popular location to spend their weekends. The small villages on the outskirts of the park are slowly crammed with cozy pousadas (inns). With the advent of more day-trippers, more bars and restaurants are being opened. In the summer, the tourists prefer to visit the waterfalls; the icy water provides the much needed relief for the heated bodies. In the dry and chilly winter, they prefer to make long walks on the nature trails that take you through various viewpoints, from where you can enjoy breathtaking views.
