Poco do Diabo Waterfall, Lencois

4.6
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.

  • Drops of water with natural pools for swimming. Near sheets, easy access and beautiful! Worth the visit!

  • For those who like a light walk through the Woods, definitely go to the pit of Hell, without any fear, lol. This is a very nice place, with good conditions to take a bath with the water is cold, just watch the depth, the waterfall is not well accessible, is further off the deep end and is more to be seen, though I suggest walking through the formations , walls and large stones of the river Mucugêzinho, register good photos of the landscape and the promenade. Admission is free, if you want to pay R $10 for parking, but you can leave the car away in the highway itself, access is through a restaurant/souvenir trade that is outside the BA242 highway. For a short stop is an ideal ride between 1 to 2 hours at the site.

  • A beautiful waterfall of dark waters and with a waterfall very relaxing. The trail is moderate, but it is super worth it.
