Customer Travel Tip: Go to chapada diamantina and do a tour! And wander the streets of Lencois in the evening and have great food here.

Liked: Went to the beautiful national park Chapada Diamantina, a must see!

Disliked: It is not easy to get around without a car. It also is not very touristy yet, which is nice is some ways but can be hard as well. For example there only is one cash machine and it is not working most of the time.

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: The HI hostel can be a bit pricier than others. Patricia at Daime Solo hostel does better deals for the same tours.

Liked: Beautiful friendly town with waterfalls and rock slides within walking distance. Difficult to access the parque without joining a pricey tour. Recommend hiring a car from Luktan in main square for 100 reals a day (first 200km free - 1 real/k thereafter) and highly recommend the 3 day Fumaca trek (sleep under the stars next to waterfalls - magnificent scenery. If you can get Lucio as a guide then do it, he's amazing).

Disliked: Prices for tours adds up.
