Macaw's Sinkhole

Private Reserve


A geological formation resulting from the collapse of rock blocks through thousands years ago creating this enormous cavity. This is one of the largest sinkholes in the world, with a circumference of 500 meters (1600 feet) and the depth reaches 100 meters (330 feet).

We will visit the sinkhole in the morning or in the afternoon and will photograph from two large decks where you can easily set you tripod. The decks are located on opposite sides of the sinkhole in order to have the best light conditions in the morning and in the afternoon.
There are around 24 red-and-green macaws nesting inside the sinkhole, and many other outside. You will have the opportunity to photograph the macaws close up on the trees or in flight with different backgrounds. The pictures you can take here are amazing!

At the bottom of the sinkhole, an emerald-green lagoon, surrounded by exuberant vegetation, is home of caimans whose survival is a mystery. Besides them and the macaws, mammals such as armadillos, anteaters, coatis, foxes and others 130 birds species, including ibises, toucans and the colorful blue-crowned motmot.
