    This is the first fixed bungee jump spot in Brazil.
    It's a huge jump from a tower of 100 mt...430 mt from Belo Horizonte's downtown level.
    From 11 Am to 11 PM....It custs around R$ 70,00 (seventy reais)
    Located at the tower (A Torre):
    Alta Vila Center Class
    R Senador Milton Campos N? 115
    Bairro Vale do Sereno - Nova Lima

    Serra do Curral

    and Nova Lima is a fine off the beathen path trip....and may I say tip ^..^
    having own transportation would make the 20km trip easy and eventful.
    but there is public transport available from Belo.
    have a look at my Nova Lima page, you might fancy the trip out there

    Mariana's old Town Center, Rua Direita

    absolutly idyllic....and a little in the shadow of Ouro Preto. both Towns are just around 100km from Belo Horizonte and a must see.especially Mariana is worth to visit, and as far as I know not so crowded by Tourist nowadays then Ouro Preto, and from here the royal trail....Slavepath worth exploring too
    have a look at my Mariana page

    NEAR BELO HORIZONTE: CAVES

    by swesn Written Feb 18, 2007
    Gruta Maquina

    There are a few caves not far from Belo Horizonte - Gruta Lapinha, only 36km away; Gruta Maquine, 121km away; and Gruta Rei do Mato, 73km away.

    You can certainly do these trips by local buses. Go to the Rodoviaria and ask for the bus companies for the schedules to take you there.

    Note that some of the schedules are quite odd, like they leave very early in the morning and return rather late in the afternoon, leaving you a lot of time at the cave... which you actually don't need.
