When Do You Want To Go?

Getting Off the Beaten Track in Brazil's Park Country

Sandy beaches. Samba. Hot sea breezes. The typical image of Brazil tends to span lazy afternoons on Copacabana beach, overshadowed by the widespread arms of Christ the Redeemer, and not a whole lot else.  But venture just a few hours inland from Salvador to the sleepy town of Lencois, and a whole new side to this extraordinary country begins to emerge.

Baked red earth dotted with cactus and tall, whispering grasses.  Huge rocky outcrops, startlingly ochre against a searingly blue sky.  Caverns and crevasses, the surprising glimmer of a waterfall pouring through the trees, gut churning drops from lofty viewpoints into hot, empty space.

The landscape of Chapada Diamantina National Park is breathtaking in all ways imaginable, from the simple fact of its jaw dropping beauty to the heavy Brazilian heat which wraps itself warmly about your shoulders as you walk.  There are not many destinations where the raw, untempered spirit of a place is so abundantly present, and that in itself makes it a must visit for anyone looking to get under Brazil’s skin.

When to Go

The end of the rainy season, around March, is a good option to combine (mostly) good weather with enough water to make sure you see the waterfalls.  Hiking will still be enjoyable in the dry season, though again, there may be fewer watering holes to cool off in.  To see the waterfalls at their most powerful and spectacular, it's necessary to visit in rainy season.
