If you have more time you can easily spend a... More

The Poco do Diabo Waterfall is a great and mysterious place to visit after a long day of hiking through the Chapada. The water is clean and you can wash of the dirt and tiredness from a long day of walking and hiking. The scenery is also fun, worth visiting!

The colour is most unusual but don't let that deter you from having a dip, the water is cool and refreshing. Nice little spot to enjoy the falls. I would... More

The Poco do Diabo ends in a nice lake, good to swim in. The water is cold. Put on your swimming clothes before you walk there..it can be crowded and it is not easy to change there.

Small trail to get there. Nice water and a very deep natural pool. There's no entry fee, but they ask R$ for parking.

I went there as a part of a day tour and was very nice for swimming. I recommend it. There is also the possibility to do rappel and tyrolean but for this you need to pay.

Slightly out of Lencois so need to have car or do as tour. Gorgeous place but was a lot of people there. You can do rappelling or zip lining. We went with Zentur who were very professional.
