The place is really wonderful. There's a nice infrastructure with restaurant, souvenirs, etc. the canyon itself is really beautiful and worth the visit. From Aracaju, you can take a day tour and visit the canyons or you may stay there and also experience the several...More

It’s very impressive/beautiful but nearly 4hrs to get there from Aracaju and 4hrs back makes it a very long day. I would suggest making it a two day trip and staying somewhere near Xingo as apparently there is a lot more to it that the...More

This is a good option if you have kids. For my wife and me it was too touristy. The staff was great and they do a nice job. We just felt like cattle being herded around.

If you come to Sergipe and don't take this trip, you have wasted your time. The canyons are among the most beautiful places I've been in Brazil. The boat trip is fun and safe. Guides will explain things only in Portuguese though.
