Your visit to Barichara does´t stops when you´ve been round the square – there are two plans you cannot afford to miss: one is to watch the subset from the hill above the village: the other is to spend a day in adventure sports that will literally take your breath away.

Start early, wear light, easy-drying clothing. There are a number of travel agencies that can give a complete list of the adventure sports available near the village. There is torrentism on the Juan Curi falls, caving, trekking; canoeing on the River Fonce: and hang-gliding at the Curi falls too.

Barichara is a place where rest and relaxation combine with adventure and excitement. A totally magic experience!

One of the most exciting things to do at the end of the day is to walk up above the north east corner of the village and watch the subset, changing from pink, to orange to yellow,  and finally  melt into the darkness and the stars.

Perfect for photographers, lovers and you. If you simply want as day´s rest, take a walk along the streets and look at the crafts, all typical indigenous products like woven hemp, alpargatas (the local style of footwear) rugs, clothing  and stone carvings – all ideal to take home as  souvenirs of this wonderful experience.
