In the natural reservation of Itatiaia …

Situated in the « Serra da Mantiqueira », next to the border with the state of Minais Gerais, the village of Maromba seduces nature lovers and sportspeople. The ambiance is very laid-back and tourism is limited ; a lot of Rio’s inhabitants don’t even know the place. Formerly populated by the “Puris” Indians, the area has a lot of water streams and waterfalls that you can follow on foot, by horse or by bike. People also come there to swim in natural swimming pools under the waterfalls and to slide along the natural water slides… Depending on the season, you can also experience white water rafting and its adrenaline rush!
