Xingo Canyons, Caninde de Sao Francisco
(4.6/5 based on 2,800+ 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”.

  • The ride was very nice, pity this forbidden by Ibama to make bathing in the pool of the Canyon. the catamaran will only up to a certain point of the river and around the baths are carried out at the place of departure of the catamaran.

  • Ride is a rare beauty. the day I went unfortunately I couldn't take a shower cuz Ibama was not allowing for a few days. but very tiring for those who will stay in Aracaju. due to the long hours of travel.

  • The place is exotic. Unlike anything we're used to. The catamaran is nice, especially if it is the first. Some people hate those guides talking ... talking ... play music, but overall, I found it very nice. The place is amazing! I think it's a must for anyone who comes to the State of Sergipe. is the best place to meet in the State.
