Salvador and the Bahia Coast Sights

Rio Serrano

  • Body Of Water/Waterfall

Updated 06/24/2013

Fodor's Review

One of the region's most popular hiking trails runs along a section of Rio Lençóis called Rio Serrano. It's surrounded by exuberant forest, now protected as municipal park. The reddish-color water is due to organic matter from the forest floor. You can bathe and relax in several natural pools—they look a bit like hot tubs—formed on the rock-strewn riverbed. There are also three waterfalls along the way to a scenic overlook of the town and surrounding hills. The trailhead is about 1 km (½ mi) north of Lençóis, after the gate to Portal de Lençóis hotel.
