Buraco das Andorinhas

Recommendation via Submit Recommendation:


Buraco das Andorinhas in Formosa, Goiás is a natural wonder that boasts a massive circular depression formed by the dissolution of rocks, measuring 167 meters in diameter and 148 meters deep. The cave has an entrance through a collapse doline (a circular depression formed by the dissolution of rocks), and it is believed to be around 60 million years old.


The location is situated in the municipality of Formosa, near the district of Bezera. It is approximately 117 km from Brasília - DF, including 17 km of dirt road in good condition, and 47 km in total from the city of Formosa. Driving time from Brasilia is approximately 2 hours in good driving conditions.


Once inside, visitors can explore the dense forest of endemic vegetation, where giant ferns and an immense hall await them. A striking underground lagoon of blue water, one of the largest accessible underground lakes in Brazil, also features in the cave. The lagoon, 180 meters long, surprises visitors with its beauty, and it is formed by the water table, which doesn't change its colour in the rainy season since it's not reached by it.


Visitors are advised to wear comfortable clothing and sturdy shoes as the cave is rocky and can be slippery, especially during or after rainfall. Please be aware that it is not the easiest if climbs down or up. Cameras are a must-have as the site provides numerous opportunities for breath-taking photographs. With its unique features and impressive natural beauty, Buraco das Andorinhas in Formosa, Goiás, is a must-visit for anyone who loves to explore the wonders of nature.


You can enter the area directly for R$25 or do a guided and well managed tour. I have used Itakama and I found them very professional and friendly. Please note that you must be at the meeting point at 8:00 sharp. If you are not there on time, they will leave without you.

Highly recommended

Cristina has a natural ability to engage with children of all ages. With her previous profession employment as a teacher, and having two adult children of her own, she is well placed to take responsibility for any children in her care. Speaking fluent Portuguese and English, your children will be in safe hands and also receive the benefits of improving their language abilities.

I came here to write a post about Billy and I see there already is one! So I'll just add my experience. When I was brand-new to Brasilia I did a group tour of Brasilia. This is a really great tour - you'll learn not only the layout of the city and the history of why it's been done that way, but also get to see all the big monuments and best architecture. I would really recommend this tour if you have family or friends visiting. You'll learn so much about the city, and your guests will feel like they actually know the city.

Moving is often a stressful and daunting task, but AAA Moving & Relocations LLC made it a breeze!
The team was fantastic - they were professional, efficient, friendly and patient! They took great care in packing and securing all of my belongings, and even went above and beyond to collect a few items that I had forgotten.
Paulo Woolny, the owner of the company, was also incredibly helpful throughout the process. He provided transparent and accurate quotes upfront, so there were no surprises when it came to the cost of my move. He also kept me informed every step of the way, which really put my mind at ease. He is always willing to please you if he can and if something is under his control.
When my removal reached Italy, their Italian counterparts were just as efficient and careful. All my belongings arrived in time and in perfect condition, which was great.
Overall, I cannot recommend AAA Moving & Relocations LLC highly enough. They truly are experts in their field, and they made what could have been a very stressful experience into a pleasant and easy one. If you're looking for a moving company that cares about your belongings and your peace of mind, look no further than AAA Moving & Relocations LLC. You shall not be disappointed!

If you want a day trip outside the city, Billy does really great tours to Cristalina, Pirenopolis, etc. I went on a Cristalina small group tour with him and it was really fun. My son is still talking about it two years later.

One of the best Açaís I've ever tried!

Super affordable, with generous portions. My favorite is the one mixed with cupuaçu sorbet 😍
The place is very charming and peaceful. They offer a range of delicious typical food and the owner is super friendly.

I recommend this product.
