Buracao Falls, Ibicoara

(5/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
As you emerge, swimming from the narrow canyon, you are faced with a stunning 80 m (262 ft) drop of water from above. Surrounded by huge circular cliffs resembling a big hole, Buracao Falls is an awesome phenomenon and your reward for a long trek through the lush Parque Natural Municipal do Espalhado. Guides will lead you along Rio Espalhado, where you will see some impressive landscape. They will provide you with life jackets when you reach your destination. Once in the cool, black pool, you can swim around and climb the rocks behind the curtain of water. The experience is exhilarating. As you leave, you will pass two viewpoints where you can observe the fall from above and be impressed a second time round. Be sure to pack your own provisions as you won’t find any shops, just beautiful, untouched nature. Arrange your visit to Buracao Falls and discover more family-friendly attractions in Ibicoara using our Ibicoara trip builder.

  • For many attractions of Chapada Diamantina, no photos or descriptions that can show the real splendor of the attractions and Buracão waterfall is one of these. The canyon stretch of winding, but passable, hides one of the most impressive waterfalls of the Chapada. The curtain, the current and the water vapor formed by this waterfall are chilling (cold water also helps a little kkk). Worth it, just going to see and believe such beauty and force of nature!
