Ribeirao do Meio, Lencois
(4.5/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
It may take some finding (try asking a local), but Ribeirao do Meio and its surrounding swimming holes are well worth the short trek it takes to get there. If you work up a sweat on the way there, a dip in the cool waters will soon freshen you up. The waterfall itself is a huge sheet of rock, lying diagonally, which makes for a perfect, natural waterslide. The spot is peaceful, and secluded, and there is a good chance you will have it to yourself. Keep an eye out for locals, however, as they may be selling freshly squeezed sugar cane juice. Put Ribeirao do Meio at the forefront of your travel plans using our Lencois holiday planner.

  • Excellent area for River and waterfall with slides. Very easy to reach for a light and short track, who needs no help from guides. Access by the village of sheets.

  • I loved it, one of the best places to slip, swimming and stay near the city, super quiet track.

  • The waterfall is located southeast of Lençóis. The way there starts right next to the Pousada "Luar do Sertão" (I can recommend only) and takes less than 45 minutes (3 km). The easy path leads through a forest and is thus relatively shady. There are tourists who are on the outward or return occasionally. The waterfall itself is a natural water slide, which I imagine something painful (have not tried, only observed how some have landed somewhat rudely). At the end of the slide, there are multiple pools that invite for swimming. The water is pretty cool but very welcome on a hot day. Fantastic!
