Xingo Canyons, Caninde de Sao Francisco
(4.7/5 based on 1,200+ 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”. Use our Caninde de Sao Francisco holiday planner to arrange your visit to Xingo Canyons and other attractions in Caninde de Sao Francisco.

  • It's a tiring trip because they are 3:00 inside the van to go and more 3:00 to come back. Once there, embarks in the catamaran and sail for 1:00, remains in the Canyon by 1:00 and returns! The location is nice, but nothing to take your breath away! If you are in a good mood, make the ride (after all, is part of the tourist attractions of the place), otherwise don't waste your time! The natural pool is nice, but the water is cold! Have a boat trip to the crack (10R $/pessoa) which, by being cheap, it's worth ... the Karranca restaurant's buffet costs $/pessoa and 38R diameter varied food, I thought she was hot, but the service left something to be desired-I asked 2 different waiters for ginger ale and it wasn't served. The transfer + catamaran made by Crystal Tour by 150R $/pessoal! Ranga driver was very helpful is funny, making the route more pleasant!

  • Lovely place, impressive nature and the energy of the place is amazing. The tour is made of catamaran and is well organized. You can take a bath in a river that was surrounded, for safety of bathers.

  • The Canyon flooded by the dam of Xingó is very beautiful. There are several options, leaving Canindé or Alagoas. The best known is the catamaran out of Candy. Has good infrastructure, staff courteous, well prepared. Upon arriving at the floating deck you can supplement the ride in a canoe and reach narrow places, 10.00 R$; In addition to swimming in a pond network in San Francisco. Twist for a sunny day is much more beautiful.
