Xingo Canyons, Caninde de Sao Francisco

4.7
#1 of 32 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 all starts when you get to the karrancas restaurant, the view is amazing and prepares you for the better, that is yet to come. Oh, buy your lunch before embarking on the catamaran, because then there's line! The ascent to the catamaran is organized, it's called the Guide and the accompanying. Sit under the acts covered, the Sun will give you a slight punished; or, do as I soak of Protector hahaha! The route is beautiful, a lot to see, photograph and, if you're lucky enough that I didn't have, begin to understand the things that the Explain tab on the mic, because, besides bad sound, she talked extremely fast. After 1 hour or so, the cave of the cut out and a fantastic image of San Francisco gives an air of religiosity. The catamaran docks in a sort of platform, where you can take a bath in the green waters of the old Chico, advice: use the buoys they offer, the waters are heavy and it's easy to sink. There are small canoes alongside, where you pay 10 real and makes a 10-minute ride through the walls. DO THIS TOUR! The catamaran is quiet, loud music and all tired. Arriving at the karrancas restaurant, we had a great lunch, self service for 40 reais. I expected more Northeastern, more typical foods. The only thing typical was a stew of lamb, well more or less!?!? I would rate the ride in Mega Good Great Amazing wonderful, but does not have this rating!!! Good ride!

  • Spectacular place, an unforgettable ride where you can admire a spectacle of nature. Some important tips to get the most out of your ride: if possible do not hit and back of Aracajú or Maceió, 200 km of Aracajú and 300 km of Maceió and the roads have many bumps and the trip is too long; stay in Piranhas and do the walk in the first catamaran in the morning because people that comes with Vans and Micro-buses haven't arrived yet and your ride is more comfortable; buy the ride at the Inn, because you can pay with credit card, at the place of loading is only in money; If you are of catamaran please MFTUR tour, because their structure is excellent. We stayed at the Inn of Lia I made an evaluation. Follow these tips and you will have an unforgettable ride.

  • Beautiful place! Perfection of nature! We made the ride up there of catamaran, which offered comfort with food and drink on board. When we get there, yet we're in a small area available and then we took a boat worth 10.00 to stroll through Canyons. The place is spectacular! Surreal power of nature in building something so amazing. I highly recommend this tour, is very worthwhile.

  • A good structure but with the value that they charge the boat ride to meet a tiny cave should be included in the tour, very close and fast and you take out the $10 input and $100 more $40 and if u is more $40 of van van , detail, takes 3hs30min to get you enters the Catamaran ride 1:00 only does an average standing in the shower and little boat so fast when it arrives already lunch it when you think you're going to meet calmly place the driver of the van calls you to go or wait the last IMA bite, lol. There goes another 3hs30min. Even told about the photographer of the Catamaran charge you $60 you promising multiple photos, take a lie and then put 10 photos edited place already on the cd not to mention q the photographer just shooting in Catamaran q does not change much the pictures, I did and I say q doesn't pay.
