Chapada Diamantina State Park in Bahia is fantastic. Treks, waterfalls, nature, fantastic local cuisine. Fumaca Waterfall is one of the most visited waterfalls in the region

Jacob, this is a good time , not much rain. But I advise you to contact the guide, it will tell you if it's a good time of year for the waterfall.
