Buracao Falls, Ibicoara
(5/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • Despite being far from the city of Chapada Diamantina "focus", which is Comfortable. This is without a doubt one of the stopping points for any visitor of the chapada. The trail is very quiet and with various stopping points

  • We went there with the Guide Sebastian Kings (highly recommend! the guy is super attentive, storytelling and still have training for rescues), on a trail easy enough to do, just with some excerpts with stones, but nothing hard to transpose. Are approximately 3 km to go and 3 more to come back. On the way, we prefer to go straight to the big hole and, in turn, spent in other locations. The waterfall was beautiful, with a lot of water, which generated a current to reasonable in well. At one point in the Canyon gave no further to swim and we had to go through the same stones. Great bathroom! On the way back, we passed the green corner falls (in that you can't take a bath, but it's beautiful to enjoy), after we got a track that came very close to where it begins to fall, we returned and we had a wonderful bath in the waterfall of orchids, with natural hydromassage. Tour not to be missed!

  • Best waterfall I've ever been to in my life! Very cool track, not too hard, the waterfall is beautiful, is beautiful, floating with vest until you reach the fall is wonderful, and the fall is so beautiful, I was in a time of rain and I was afraid of coming under the fall because it was too strong. It rained a lot while I was at the waterfall, but still have not regretted having gone to so far. Stay away from sheets, worth sleeping in mucuje to be closer. For sure I will come back at a better time to enjoy more. Super recommend!
