No Limite (retroactively No Limite 1) was the first season of the Brazilian reality show No Limite filmed in Ceará, Brazil. The premiere aired Sunday, July 23, 2000.

Twelve contestants were chosen by the producers to participate the show between July to August 2000.

The two initial tribes were Sol and Lua. On episode 6, the two teams merged into a tribe called Solua, named for a combination of two tribes.

On the season finale, the second-to-last immunity challenge divided the players in two teams. The winning team (Elaine and Pipa) advanced for the finals, while the losing team (Andréa and Juliana) was automatically eliminated.

The Final Two faced off for the final immunity challenge, which was an extremely grueling, multi-part challenge, and the most elaborate challenge of the entire season, often combining elements from previous challenges.

This season creates the first ever all-female final two, with all the final four contestants being women. This fact was repeated only eight years later in Survivor: Micronesia.

The winner was 35-year-old Elaine de Melo, a hairdresser from São Paulo, São Paulo. She defeating graphic producer Patrícia "Pipa" Diniz at the final challenge to take the R$300,000 prize.
