This cave has this name because it displays beautiful mirrored rooms of crystalline and blue waters where it is possible to get to know it using pedal boats. The cave was formed by water infiltration in an old stone quarry that was deactivated over 20 years ago.
It is located 140 kilometers from the Capital and its access is very easy: 200 meters walking or going by car. For those who enjoy a colder climate, the temperature inside the cave varies between 15ºC and 17º C. It is a delicious walk to have with family and friends. You will be enchanted by the look and the magical climate of this cave!
The place bears this name because it is composed of tiny grains of quartz and a very white sand, which when combined, produce a very peculiar sound, referring to a cuíca (a Brazilian instrument). The access is through a trail of 2 kilometers inside a farm hotel, which is free to its guests and with the purchase of admission to visitors. This place is very vibrant with crystal clear waters of greenish tone and surrounded by a charming forest. Despite the freezing water, many visitors embrace the opportunity to swim in this area of crystal clear waters, approximately 10 meters in diameter. In this same place, it is possible to walk a little more and swim in the Tamanduá River and enjoy the moment with much joy and positivity!
