Mosquitos Waterfall, Lencois
(4.8/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
One of the most beautiful waterfalls you will see in Parque Nacional da Chapada Diamantina, Mosquitos Waterfall has an impressive 50 m (164 ft) drop, surrounded by huge walls made of layers of ancient rock covered in lush vegetation. At its base, you can swim in the cool, dark pools or take a revitalizing shower under the falling water, and after climbing to the top, you can stand directly over the fall and look down for some amazing visuals. To reach Mosquitos Waterfall, you have to trek through the privately-owned Fazenda Os Impossíveis, and if you get hungry, the owner will prepare you some delicious food. Sharing the name given to the small diamonds that were found in the area, not the bothersome insects, while you probably won't see any of the precious stones, you might catch a glimpse of the king vultures that nest in the area. Put Mosquitos Waterfall at the forefront of your travel plans using our Lencois family vacation planner.

  • The hike up to the waterfall is really nice and not difficult. You will find the way without a tour guide.

  • I think it was and of the best, if not the best, I visited waterfall. You do a quiet trail (I went with my 4 year old daughter and husband), I think that lasts a maximum of 40 min. From the top, you have a wonderful view and when you arrive at the waterfall is to move. Very beautiful. My daughter loved it and had a great time. We were lucky to get a schedule that was nearly empty. There was just us and a group of 3 friends. It's worth it.
