1. Delfim Moreira is very cold in the winter. Really cold. With frosts that leave the mountains all white.  

2. The city has no good nightlife. There are some restaurants, all very simple. But, if you really want something to do, go to Itajubá, a nearby city, full of students of the local college. 

3. The sky of Delfim Moreira is one of the best of the country. Besides, it has an important observatory over there. Will it happen an eclipse? Delfim Moreira is an excellent option to watch it. 

4. There are farms on the area with nice waterfalls. Signs on the road can lead you to them. Just follow the signs. 

5. If you like to fish, you can find some places there to practice it, with good infrastructure and excellent restaurants. 

6. "Nice one, Haxi. You only miss telling more about "Pico dos Marins" (Marins Peak), which is very close to Delfim. It's easy to get to there, just ask a local resident and he will give you the correct information. The view from the peak is awesome. Spend at least 2 days, one to arise, enjoying the view, spending the night on the top of the peak (great!) and another one to go down. If tyou want more tips on the south of Minas, I can give some: Bye..........! p.s.: Haxi, your website is great!. " tip from Marco Sérgio Miranda
