"The Chapada Diamantina, Brazil’s green gem"

Newspaper Le Monde

400 km west from Salvador de Bahia, the former diamond mining area has become an oasis for wide-open spaces lovers. 

Chapada Diamantina National Park covers an area of 1.500 km². Its vast wild spaces host 300 waterfalls and an extraordinary fauna and flora, including dozens of endemic orchid species.



Retiro Kyriri is undeniably an invitation to inner exploration rather than a touristic trip. 

However, the Chapada Diamantina region is full of breathtaking natural wonders and offers a spectacular paradise that is still relatively well-preserved from the modern world’s assault.   

If your schedule and budget allow it, you may want to visit the Chapada Diamantina National Park, a 1,500 km² area that starts only 15 minutes from Kyriri Retiro.



Many tourism agencies offer different trekking options, where you can spend 1, 2, 3, 5 or 7 days admiring its 300 majestic waterfalls and breathtaking views.

Retiro Kyriri does not organize trips or treks, but focuses completely on its missions.
