Cachoeira da Capivara is a protected area located on the border between Maranhão and Piauí states in Brazil. It covers an area of over 19,000 acres and includes three major rivers—the Maranhão River, the Parnaíba River, and the Paracauari River. The park was established in 1989 and is home to many species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, plants, and insects. It also contains some of Brazil’s most stunning natural features including waterfalls, crystal-clear rivers and lagoons, vast caves and grottos filled with stalactites and stalagmites.

The area is actually made up of three cascading falls that drop into a large pool below. The largest is known as “The Devil’s Fall” due to its impressive size and powerful force. It stands at an impressive height of 820 feet and is a sight to behold. The other two falls are smaller than “The Devil’s Fall” but still offer plenty of scenic views for visitors to enjoy.

Whether you’re looking for adventure or relaxation (or both), there’s something here for everyone. Popular activities include hiking along trails in the forested areas or exploring caves as well as kayaking down rivers or swimming in lagoons surrounded by lush vegetation. If you’re feeling brave there are even opportunities to go rappelling down steep rocky walls. There’s also plenty of wildlife to spot including exotic birds like parrots and toucans as well as monkeys swinging through trees or caimans sunbathing on rocks.

If you have some extra time, there are plenty of other attractions nearby worth exploring. If you head a few miles east, you can visit Parque Nacional do Jaú – one of Brazil’s largest national parks – which boasts stunning waterfalls, lush greenery, and abundant wildlife. Or if you’re feeling adventurous, take a boat ride upriver to see some of the remote villages that dot this part of the Amazon.
