Chapada Diamantina

Chapada Diamantina National Park, created in 1985, is a region of mixed terrain. You will find verdant slopes and red-rock mesas fed by the underground water system, waterfalls and pools contrasting with the nearby drought-ridden semi-arid Sertão. The topography consists of the cake-like layers of sediment once collected on a primeval ocean floor and pushed up to be carved by wind and water into plateaus, canyons and caverns.

Best Time to Visit

The climate of the Chapada Diamantina makes it an all-season destination, but evening storms account for the almost seven feet of rainfall per year.

Be Sure To

Enjoy a 2-hour walk to the top of Cachoeira da Fumaça (“Smoke Waterfall”), known worldwide for its 422-meter fall.
