Xingo Canyons, Caninde de Sao Francisco

Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 1,100+ 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”.

  • Great ride by Xingó Canyon. Comfortable catamaran. Recommend performing the offset the previous day and later. I left and went back to Aracaju on the same day, and was very tiring for the family.
