Xingo Canyons, Caninde de Sao Francisco

(3,000+ reviews on the web)
Canyon Nature / Park
It is hard to imagine, as you sail through Xingo Canyons, that water was only introduced to the area during the construction of the hydroelectric plant nearby. The red-orange granite rock formations are, however, over 60 million years old and, at 50 m (164 ft) tall, are breathtakingly beautiful. Tour boats expertly navigate the canyon walls until you reach an area of emerald-green water designated for swimming, where a statue of São Francisco faithfully watches over you. From this point, you can take a canoe and explore the cliffs up close, including a beautiful cave known as “The Carved Grotto”.
