Get picked up in the morning from your Rio de Janeiro hotel in the city’s downtown and southern tourist zones, after which you’ll drive for two hours to reach Brazil’s “Costa Verde” region.
You’ll arrive in the port city of Angra dos Reis and board a boat to begin your exploration of this coastal paradise. Spend the rest of the day enjoying the sun-drenched tropical vibes of the Bay’s collection of more than 300 offshore islands. Stop by Ilha Grande, the most famous of the bunch, to enjoy its crystal-clear waters and postcard-perfect beaches.
Then visit Ilha de Cataguases, known for its unique topography, and stop by Lagoa Azul, known to be one of the finest diving locations in the region. Many underwater explorers report the area is home to a variety of starfish, squid, colorful fish, and coral. The trip will make two additional stops in Freguesia de Santana, an island with an agricultural history that dates back to colonial times, and Praia de Japariz, another isle known for its scenic beaches.
At the end of your trip you’ll return to share and transfer back to your hotel in Rio de Janeiro.
