Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web
Cascading through the vast Atlantic forest, Rio Mucugêzinho has many waterfalls, and at the bottom of one you will find Poco do Diabo Waterfall. This beautiful pool ranges between two and five meters deep, and due to high iron content, the water has a dark, rusty tinge. Ideal for swimming, you can dive, abseil, or zip-line into its refreshing depths. You can also take a dip in some of the smaller pools downstream, and experience nature’s take on the jacuzzi. To reach Poco do Diabo Waterfall you have to take a 30-minute trail following the river, and as you walk through the lush vegetation, you will see some of the Bahia’s amazing flora and fauna. Superstition surrounds Poco do Diabo Waterfall and myths as to how it got its name are still popular today. A local guide will happily share his thoughts, should you ask.

  • We try to go after a night of rain, as the access is done only through the stones in the middle of the river Mucujezinho, and this was full, we can't go there! That is, if you're afraid of going through a chute with water on the knee (in days).

  • The weekend is full of residents of the region. And very pretty and the waterfall at the end of a trail of about 800 m with media trouble.
