It's a light and easy hike I was recovering from a leg injury and was able to enjoy the entire time. I would recommend hiring a guide to drive you out there.

We visited this waterfall on the first day. It's not too far away so is good when you have a half day to fill. Wonderful swimming and a chance to get under the waterfall. Really enjoyed it and highly recommend it.

Great place to visit. Beautiful and incredible for swimming. There is a restaurant with food both close to the river and at the entrance for complete meals. No guide needed and free!!!

It's so nice there to take a swim, escape the heat. Jump into the water, but be careful. We were out of the main season, so it was not very busy, which is good. Really enjoyed that place.

The waterfall and the pool below it is really beautiful, but don't go there during a brasilian feriado! The number of people being there with you takes the fun out of being there...

While in Chapada Diamantina we've visited a few waterfalls. This was our first one, probably due to the easy access. We went for a swim on its cold waters, which was very welcome on a hot day. The water is black due to sediments of...More
