Mosquito Waterfall

Mosquito Waterfall is another beautiful attraction of the Chapada Diamantina. Located at the end of a small canyon, it provides a wonderful place to bathe and a beautiful landscape. The waterfall was named by the miners who found many tiny diamonds, which were called “mosquitos”.

Poço Azul

Poço Azul is a cave with crystal blue waters, and is one of the most popular routes in the Chapada. You can swim, or rather float, in this hypnotizing cave. This underground pool was the scene of paleontological studies in 2005 when they found more than 3,000 fossils of prehistoric animals, which makes it the largest submerged paleontological site in Brazil.
