Xingo Canyons, Caninde de Sao Francisco

(4.6/5 based on 3,000+ reviews on the web)
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”.

  • Piranhas is a cozy little town with hotels and guesthouses to suit all tastes and pockets, various attractions such as the "Museum of the cangaço" and restaurants virtually on the edge of the São Francisco River, but the main attraction is the catamaran, which lasts about 2 hours, across the River to the cânyion Xingó, which is the most beautiful.

  • Beautiful place! Worth went in jan of 2017, as I was in Aracaju took a bus with the MF TUR ($ 70.00), the trip to Aracaju until then of 4 or something but still worth the walk because there is beautiful! There I had lunch in the carrancas which is a restaurant in the msm place where the catamarans 40.00 restaurant and ate and the food was great, after lunch I got the catamaran (100.00) and went to the old Chico, there you pay (10.00) and a small boat takes you to a slit, some people thought it'd make it but I loved ... and real 10 hj in day nor is much neh! :)

  • The ride is nice but not much more than a boat ride. Show canyons just at the end of the trip when the catamaran for snorkeling and the canoe ride, most interesting part of the day. You travel 1 hour, hit a place to shower with two surrounded, october 1 m deep and 1.2 m Is 1 hour showering of river at this location, can make the canoe and then spend more 1 hour to return. The catamaran is very comfortable and the service on board very good, however the price (100 R$ per person) is exaggerated.
