Chapada Diamantina is a destination that has many assets.

There is also a wide variety of possible activities, adapted to all levels, such as day hikes, trekking for several days with night in a bivouac or at home, vehicle excursions around the national park (perfect for a 3-4 day roadtrip) or mountain sports (climbing, mountain biking, canoeing, horse…).

What to do in Chapada Diamantina

 

But it is also necessary to come and discover Chapada for its lively and picturesque villages. Capão, Palmeiras, Andarai, Ibicoara each have a particular atmosphere. Some are remarkable for their colonial style and are even classified. This is particularly the case for Lençois, Mucugê and Igatu. It is also a region where culture is very rich: many festivals, traditional festivals and artistic events are organized. The history of the region is also interesting: there are remains of late 19th century diamond mining. Not to mention the gastronomy, but also the hospitality and kindness of the inhabitants of La Chapada, typical of the interior of the Nordeste.
