Tocantins (Portuguese pronunciation: [tokɐ̃ˈtʃĩs]) is one of the states of Brazil. (From: Tukã´, Toucan + tï, beak. lit. "Toucan's beak" in Tupi language). It is the newest of the 26 Brazilian states, formed in 1988 and encompassing what had formerly been the northern two-fifths of the state of Goiás. Tocantins covers 277,620.91 square kilometres (107,190.03 sq mi) and has a population of 1,496,880 (2014 est.). Construction of its capital, Palmas, began in 1989; most of the other cities in the state date to the Portuguese colonial period. With the exception of Araguaína there are few other cities with a significant population in the state. The government has invested in a new capital, a major hydropower dam, railroads and related infrastructure to develop this primarily agricultural area.

Not far from Ponte Alta, this is one of the most impressive rock formations you can visit in this province. You need a good car to go here because the roads are rough. You can climb this ancient rock (that has some holes in it), admire its colours en look at the birds that fly around it and make nests in it. Take care when climbing it especially when the rock is slippery!

Nice trek not very difficult and once on the top, you can enjoy great views and maybe the sunrise. Worth do it

When in Palmas a great side trip is the Roncadeira waterfall. I was there this last weekend and had a great time. The water is refreshing after the 1.5 mile hike. The initial decent is 120 meter drop but there are stairs to go down to reach the trail head. Going back up the stairs is the only bad part of this hike. We had a great time and recommend this to everyone. It cost us R$5.00 to go down or at the time about $2.50

O Rio Azuis está localizado na cidade de Aurora-TO fica a uns 24km da cidade de Taguatinga. Não precisa pagar pra entrar, porém estão concluindo o estacionamento que vai ser cobrado. Tem 4 restaurantes, o Rio Azuis é o menor do Brasil com cerca de 147 metros, desde a nascente até a foz. O Rio é abençoado com uma água transparente, morna e de tons azulados, a pousada lá fica R$120,00 quarto triplo. Refeição em média R$30 por pessoa. Mas a estrutura não conversa em nada com a beleza do Rios Azuis, é feia e muito destoante com a leveza e beleza do lugar!!!

Marvelous place to visit, you need a car to get here. Close to the Espirito Santo hill. Most popular time to visit is sunset. You will not be on your own there, because this is a popular place to visit. 360 degrees view all around, just beautiful. Bring water and insect repellent.

Nice park has Capivara that you are able to see up close. The only bad thing is the terrible condition of the one bridge made out of wood. It looks like it is about to fall into the creek below. It needs replaced with something more perminant. Little monkeys, alligators, and many types of birds can be seen throughout the park. Bathrooms availble at a local restaraunt, and community events on the weekends.

I just spent a few days in Jalapao.. I visited many many places there, but this place is really unique. You enter the water, start walking and then you just fall ... Few seconds later the water pressure from the bottom brings you afloat again.. Really unique. Kids enjoyed..
