  • Chapada Diamantina is a wonderful place! I went in September and was a good period in terms of temperature because it wasn't too hot and in a few days it rained a little. This made the walk to the waterfall of smoke even more fun, despite being bad stay within these raincoats. Great ride, walk, but had drawn people without any experience and made nice. Another must-see is the waterfall of the Mosquito. The Poço Azul and charming are other wonders of the location, be able to choose the time, will from April until September 10, more or less, because that's when sunlight comes in and gets even more beautiful. But anyway it's very beautiful. Another must-see is the Buracão waterfall., after passing through a narrow canyon swimming, we are faced with a wonderful waterfall inside a hole formed by rock walls. All this, I did a lot of tranquility despite my phobia in swimming in deep places. Everywhere had the highest attention and care, which made me go in with confidence and enjoy these tours that give you the greatest pleasure and turn our vacation in invigorating moments. I hired the packages via online, with the High Adventure Daniel and nominate their work too much. We were excited to get back and get to know other places, I did the 8 day tour. But first the idea is to go back and make the Valley of Pati. Don't let go!

  • Amazing national park with great hiking, thousand foot waterfalls that dissolve into mist, and more. There are caves in the area with beautiful formations. Highly recommended.
  • Tons of great hiking trails. Exhausting but very rewarding.
  • The Park is gorgeous! I wish one could just trek freely without guides. They are waaay too expensive and completely unnecessary :P
  • Perfect
  • Super
