Poco do Diabo Waterfall, Lencois
(4.6/5 based on 1,000+ 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.

  • I and my parents did all tours without Guide. But if you don't have much sense of location can be better to hire a. Search in the city centre you will get good guides with good prices. 1st day: we left the North Coast SSA (Village Sauipe) the 4:30 and the instead of going the Sheets that would be our support, we went straight to the Poço Azul, we arrived around 10:30 without difficulty, with attention on the boards and in moments of doubt asking residents. The last 8 kms to reach the well is terrible, fearful, but the well is beautiful. The entrance fee is 30.00 and get you down a staircase in a BAD STATE. Slick, wobbly boards and staff with any ill will in the world, the place speaks for himself only, because if it was up to the other factors, no one was there. On the way we meet the Babe's Guide that offered us a ride to Olhos D'agua, place little explored and without structure, but very beautiful, crystalline water as much as the well but without limitations, could swim freely, diving, I saw a lot of fish and a turtle, and no one was every bit of our pond, SUPER RECOMMEND. We left there at 16 and went to bed linen, we stayed at the Inn (PERFECT). 2° DAY: the script was the Devil, with mucugezinho and after Pratinha. Like so much of the first 2 that we were there and we just went though the night. We ate a delicious free-range chickens in the Maestro's restaurant, just above the Mucugezinho River. 3°-out of curiosity we begin a walk up the river that bisects the city and end up knowing the Fervedouros and a little more forward to Cachoeirinha, this hike was more or less 1:30 because we took a lot of pictures and we bathed every hole with water we saw ahead. We came back, we hit the road and met the famous Pratinha, the water is crystal clear, very beautiful, food and drinks a bit expensive. We came back, we went up the Father Ignatius (beautiful, but very tiring) and gave one more dip in the Mucugezinho and went to the Inn. Notes: If you like beer, prepare to pay 5.00 in. Take tennis in the trunk for places because it is safe to make these trails. Take money because many (almost all) the places do not accept credit card.

  • The place is beautiful and the trail is not the most difficult, but do not make the mistake of going without shoes. Well worth getting to know.

  • Certainly there are to visit it, much beware of currents carrying water down, are very dangerous.
