Waterfall Nature / Park
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.

  • The access to the river is short and easy. With beautiful swimming pools at home, down the river by the stones, will have access to the pit of Hell that is the biggest one. very beautiful. Recommend going with a guide in all places of high, it is more secure.
