Xingo Canyons, Caninde de Sao Francisco

(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”.

  • Magnificent and charming. Come hear the prayer of St. Francis. Is lush and you can still get close with the canoe and swim in the waters of the Old Chico. A lot of wonderful!

  • It pays to know the tour is odd but beware of the receptive that will take you to these walks. If you choose the company Nozestur give up because the snake you ride with boat and when the shipment you are charged again and when requests the resarcimento does not pay. Get away from her because it also has a team completely unprepared to serve them

  • Despite being in Sergipe, gem had not yet had the opportunity to meet the Xingó Canyon. The place is fascinating. Natural beauty and a very hot water to bathe. The downside is the time of the tour. The trip to the site of bath is very long and the period for very short bath. Another thing that isn't worth it is the boat ride around the cave. R$ 10.00 price seems negligible, but for a ride that lasts not even 5 minutes, I found expensive.
