There is no season unadvisable for the Chapada Diamantina. The summer rains (November to January) can muddy the trails, but leave the waterfalls more flowing. Between March and May, after the summer rains, you will find the Chapada more green; and between May and September, you will hardly get any rain. The middle of the year -- between May and September -- is also the time when, on clear days, the Blue Caves, Poço Azul and Poço Encantado receive the incidence of sun rays that leave their waters blue.
