Xingo Canyons, Caninde de Sao Francisco

#1 of 26 in Parks in State of Sergipe
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”. With our custom trip planner, Caninde de Sao Francisco attractions like Xingo Canyons can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
