Xingo Canyons, Caninde de Sao Francisco

#1 of 25 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.

  • It's a place that looks like a dream of so beautiful. The trip to Aracaju until the Xingó is very tiring but worth it. We made the trip with the Nozestur of Aracajú, the tourism company is terrible, with old buses and guides ill-prepared in addition, stopping in places hideous to eat. The restaurant where you catch the catamaran is all-you-can-eat buffet, but it's not worth a penny. Bring your own lunch. The catamaran offers appetizers, that takes too long and are not hot. In short, the ride is worth, the service generally.

  • Hello, during visit to Aracaju 2018, Carnival was with 3 friends in 2 different hotels and we close with the Agency, affiliated with the ride to Aracaju Canios CVC in San Francisco, the moment we close the tour warned that we would like to do the walk together, conclusion we were put in separate bus not allowing we walk together, the buses were in poor conditions, problems and broke in back, the Angelita guide totally unprepared, the ride was supposed to start at 7 in the morning with the 20-hour returns was completed with much danger and stress the 23 hours, the Agency totally unprepared not providing aid or any aid to passengers, suggestions when they seek to avoid tours the Agency NUTS!!!

  • I did the ride out of Aracaju with an agency, are approximately 3:30 in the middle of Sergipe backcountry travel. The location is simply magnificent, has an entire infrastructure for the visitor. Diving in the waters of the São Francisco River, enjoy the beauties of Xingó Canyon was really fantastic.
