The Poco Encantado or The Enchanted Well is located at the Chapada Diamantina national park. The well is 120 feet deep. The water is so transparent that it is clear enough to see all the ancient rocks and tree trunks which decorate its bottom.

When there’s sun, light passes a narrow opening and forms a stunning blue reflection upon the water, transforming this tranquil cave into an amazing magical place that you can only find in fantasy worlds, like that of Avatar.

Since the water is very pure, access to it is extremely limited, making this secretly hidden beautiful place in Brazil even more inaccessible for tourists. The rare ecosystem is very important and the environmental protection of this giant pool is quite delicate.
