Our second night of camping was less eventful than our first, thankfully. 🙂 We had about a 3 hour drive from Calandula Falls over to Pedras Negras (which means Black Rocks) and it was a very pleasantly scenic drive. From a distance you can see clusters of rock formations jetting up from a sea of green trees.
Up close the rocks were quite impressive. We turned off the main road and drove through the rocks into a small ‘town center’ that consisted a newly built school, church, gazebo, and mayor’s house. Strangely, there was no town to accompany this modern town center, but we did meet the mayor and he welcomed us to camp in an empty lot behind the church and within eyeshot of the police station. The closest village was at least 3km away and there were only a few people around including 4-5 boys playing around in the schoolyard. We certainly felt safe here and enjoyed walking out of town for more rocky views.
