Top Tips

Be warned that the weather conditions are quite changeable in the canyon, and so if you’re unlucky you may have to wait a couple of hours at the site before you can fly. If you’re really unlucky, the flight will be cancelled.
Expect to have to drive for over an hour to get to the canyon from . Transport is of course included in the price.
Try not to lose your shoes on take off! But don’t worry if you do, as one of the friendly instructors will surely find them for you.

Top Descriptions

This cathedral is the centrepiece of and it sits proudly on the northern corner of the main plaza. The outside might be better decorated than the inside, but it’s as much about the setting as it is the facade. There’s a reason this is such a popular spot for marriages from all across . – Daniel

Top Tips

Try to come here of an evening if you can, so you can see the cathedral both in sunlight and at dusk when it is prettily lit up.
Don’t expect to be wowed by the decoration on the inside. The wooden ceiling is worth noticing, but otherwise you might consider the inside less ornamental and decorated than other famous cathedrals in the country.

Top Descriptions

Barichara is famed for being one of the prettiest colonial villages in all of , and it isn’t hard to see why. It’s a sleepy but well preserved little place with excellent panoramas of the surrounding countryside. There’s not much going on, but it’s worth visiting for the peaceful picturesqueness is nothing else. – Daniel
