The “Sertão Do Ubatumirim” And Around
The Sertão do Ubatumirim is a small neighborhood known for its organic market garden production, its waterfalls and its hiking trails.
Some local traditional festive events are celebrated in this neighborhood, such as Cassava Day or Juçara Day (the seeds of this palm tree are used to prepare açaí, a famous Brazilian specialty, and its heart is used to prepare salads and other local dishes).
You will find in the Sertão do Ubatumirim a number of small businesses, bars, restaurants and snack-bars (Cantinho Caiçara, Delícias da Nelly…).
A health center is also situated 3 km away from the campground, should health care be needed.
