02. SUP & Pool Tour "Cave&SUPMedium" Marimbus/Poço Encantado (Enchanted Pool)
A 3 hours trip through the Marimbus mini Pantanal framed by the Serra do Sincora mountains. The wetlands region is formed by the convergence of two rivers, 'Rio Santo Antônio' and 'Rio Utinga'. It is particularly fascinating to take a bath in that river contemplating the fauna and flora around. On the way, you can occasionally see birds and Capuchin monkeys. After our SUP adventure we will stop for a delicious, typical Brazilian lunch – Your chance to try the local specialties firsthand. The trail to the enchanted pool descents first down some stairs before we enter the cave through on a small path. After climbing down a ladder the path gets easier and wider. Just a few more minutes and the spectacular enchanted pool lies with its deep blue waters in front of us. The effect is stunning and it’s hard to believe that the dept reaches more than 65 meters. Listen to the story how this marvelous place got discovered while you marvel at this natural beauty.
For culture and history interested people, there is the option of visiting the old miners town of 'Igatú' instead of one of the enchanted pool. 'Igatú' looks a bit like an open-air museum and is used repeatedly as film scenery. From the quiet center of town, we will pass by the church of 'São Sebastião' with its 'Byzantine'-style cemetery. After walking through an area of huge eucalyptus trees, we reach the stone ruins, which are the remains of Igatú´s booming past during the diamond rush. Nearby we can visit “Galeria Arte & Memória.” This is an open-air museum displaying objects used during the diamond rush as well as a small and fine gallery displaying contemporary art. On the veranda, we enjoy the nice view while drinking a cup of coffee or tasting locally made ice cream or one of the delicious pancakes. For a little adventure, we can visit an old mining tunnel called, “Mina Brejo-Verruga.” We will be guided by one of the old miners who will give us a feel for the atmosphere and working conditions of the mines. In the middle of the tunnel, we will arrive at a larger hall where clay figures honor the miners who died there.
