Activity and Adventure
Today you’re off to Lençois, a pretty former diamond-mining town set against a backdrop of mountains and forests. While the quaint town – all cobbled streets and brightly painted buildings – is a draw in itself, the best adventures are to be had to explore the surrounding areas. And that’s just what you’ll be doing. While here you’ll relax in the waters of the Devil’s Pool and if you feel like it – try abseiling or zip-lining along the Rio Mucugezinho River. You’ll go caving at Lapa Doce Grotto and The Blue Grotto and try your hand at quad biking. Then it’s on to Chapada Diamantina, a gorgeous national park encompassing waterfalls, mountains, and swimming holes. Be sure to check out Ribeirão do Meio, a thrilling natural waterslide the kids will love.
