Lencois You probably start here when you go to Chapada diamantina. Lencois is beautiful and worth visiting. There is live music nearly every night, it's full with people from all over the world and most of all very very safe. There are plenty of trails...More

Gorgeous mountainous region with lots of history and the chance to strike it rich in gold. Ha! Terrific hikes and waterfalls. Guides with Chapada Diamantina Daniel spoke good English, we needed that, and had good stories to tell. Recommend.

Spent 5 days in the Park and could have spent many more. Parts of the trek are challenging and the heat in January made it more so, but a decent level of the fitness will enable people to get the most out of the experience....More

Vist to Bahia in mid march 2011 (1 Reply)
We are finalizing our trip to Bahia and are at a standstill. We are a family of 5, 2adults 2boys 22 & 17 and 1girl 17. We are arriving in Salvador on 19th Mar and rtn is Sun 27th Mar. We would like to combine Chapada Diamantina National Park and also some beach maybe even surfing. My husband wants to do a self drive but we have been unable to figure out how to put everything together. Any suggestions would be wonderful.

Chapada Diamantina National Park (0 Replies)
Hi guys Planning on arriving in Lencois on the 25th August to trek around Chapada until the 27th August. I need to do a bit more research but I was wondering would we stay in Lencois and explore from there every day and trek around, or stay in Lencois for 1 night and then try and plan a 2 day guide/trek before arriving back in Lencois? Thanks Omar

2 days in Salvador will bring enough time to see the must-do.2 days in Morro de Sao Paolo seems a little bit short.But if you take the two hours Catamaran from Terminal Maritimo and arrive there early,you may enjoy the island to the fullest. But to enjoy and to not rush through the trip,you will need at least two weeks.Bahia is a pretty big area and so is Chapada Diamantina.About the rain season in Bahia, it usually rain in the morning with clear and sunny weather at mid-day.The rainy season...More
