Pousadas in Chapada Diamantina

Chapada Diamantina in Bahia, the North East of Brazil is one of the state's treasured national parks. Here is a thriving eco tourism destination, ideal for people who want to experience nature and enjoy hikes to mountains, waterfalls and caves. 

Lençois is the main town in the Chapada Diamantina. Outside high season it is just a sleepy colonial town with very little traffic and cafes. Once the business centre of the Brazilian diamond trade, the colonial buildings in Lençois are testament to past wealth. Many are now in need of a coat of paint but the place itself is still beautiful and it's a wonderful place to hang out with a cool beer or two after a long hike!

The Vale do Capão (Capao valley) sits right in the heart of the Chapada Diamantina national park and the main town Palmeiras is another great jump off point for exploring the curious flat topped mountains and ridges which date back billions of years and were once at the bottom of the ocean. The valley itself is 1000 metres high and the temperature is correspondingly lower than the coast of Bahia, averaging 19C year round. 

Another option would be to stay in Andarai which is situated in the southern part of the park in the foothills of the Sincora mountains only 420kms from Salvador.The town is conveniently close to other important attractions such as Poço Encantado, Poço Azul, Buracão Falls, Mucugê, Lençóis and the caves of Iraquara. It is also the starting point of Brazil’s most beautiful trail: Andaraí-Vale do Capão, via Pati and Gerais do Vieira.

To get there you don't have to go through Lençois. Just get the 8am bus from the bus station in Salvador with the Aguia Branca company, connect in Itaberaba and you'll be in Andarai by 16.30.
