It’s easy to get to the area by bus from Brasília and Goiânia, but a bit of a logistical challenge once you’re here: without a car distances are long, local buses are almost nonexistent, and you’ll have to rely a guide’s contacts to get around. As there is no accommodation in the park itself, you’ll have to base yourself in the small towns of MINEIROS or CHAPADÃO DO CÉU, though both are a considerable distance from the park; the former, geared more to visitors and with a population of around 43,000, is unfortunately 85km away. The latter, only 27km from the park, is more rustic, and much smaller with less than 5000 inhabitants. There are direct buses to Mineiros from both Brasília and Goiânia, and to Chapadão from Goiânia only.
