Gruta da Pratinha near Chapada Diamantina National Park is simply beautiful. The crystal clear waters allow you to see quite a bit of the rock formations, and small fish that inhabit the grotto but if caves don't strike your fancy you can always take a dip in the attached pool ans simply relax (pictured here). The grotto is just northwest of the Chapada Diamantina National Parkand can be reached on Route 122. Most trek organizers leaving from Lencois will visit the Gruta da Pratinha.
