The Caracol State Park is one of the main tourist attractions of Canela city, in Rio Grande do Sul. Its auto-interpretative tracks permeate it fully and take you to an amazing contact with nature.

The Caracol Falls, a fall of 131 m, is the postal card of the city and the center of attention. You can view the city from the viewing spot, from which you can also see the valley and the native forest. From the observatory, a tower of 30 m, the panoramic view is even better. But you can contemplate the magnitude of the waterfall from other angle, from the bottom up, coming down the ladder of 927 steps.

In addition, you can have fun at Sonho Vivo Station by taking a delightful train ride, led by the train driver Zé do Apito. The ride tells the story of Italian immigration, from the first train trips in the region and talks about the importance of preserving nature.

In the Park there are also barbecue areas, snack bar, restaurant and craft shops where you can buy chocolates, knitwear, and art pieces.
