  • The Raso da Catarina is a dry Savanna region, where walks among the walls of sandstone, Sandy track. The site has been used for recent productions of the globe (Old Chico and loves Stolen). The visual and the local atmosphere are quite unique. Just hear the sound of the wind and of the few birds. Everything indicates that it was already bottom of sea or there's been rivers. To reach is approximately 1 hour out of Paulo Afonso, being most in car 4 x 4 trail of sand. Small car hardly enough. Paulo Afonso left around 07:30 and back 13:30. Once there, the car is a small settlement of indigenous origin, where you pay R $20 per person. If tab's car, the cost is approximately 500 per car. We went with the Guide Nikolas (075) 8858-9199, who knows the region and is a thoughtful guy. Recommend. The hike lasts around 2 hours between the 1:30 round trip. Is the plan, but it is not for children under 12 years or people that have problems with heat. Bring water and other snack items if desired, since there is no trade. In my opinion, for those who are in Paulo Afonso or Canindé de São Francisco is worth the ride. Is a different place. My only regret is that I was a little bit some little junk you see along the trail, which actually comes from the village of residents. Very little, but there should be no garbage there.

  • Venture out into the waters of the San Francisco of catamaran or speedboat along the Shallows of Catarina. Possibility of reaching next to hydroelectric plants.

  • The Raso da Catarina is a dry Canyon, which is on the Pankararé Indian reservation. To get there, just from 4 x 4 to win the areião. We went with the Tony's Guide, Kalango do Sertão (75) 98858-9199, I highly recommend his service. I went to my car, then left for 150.00 but if you want the package with 4-wheel drive I think goes for 450.00 bucks. I arranged everything the night before with him, we went to the hotel where I stayed. No problem. The place is for those who like arid locations, desert landscapes and don't care about the heat of 40°. On booking you pay a fee of 20.00 and the city until then gives more or less 1:00 drive. Love, and was one of the best tours of the trip.
