Into the Devil’s Mouth!
Last week I took a trip to Cardoso Island State Park and surroundings while guiding a group of high school students. This region, where Brazil was first explored after the arrival of the Portuguese back in the 16th century, is extremely important both historically and environmentally. It comprises the largest remnants of the Atlantic Rainforest in coastal Brazil, besides the country's highest concentration of limestone caves.
The trip was too short for so much to see, but we found some time to visit and photograph one of Brazil’s most famous and astonishing cave: “Caverna do Diabo” (“The Devil’s Cave”). No evidences of Lucifer in there, just incredible formations that unveil amazing sceneries!
