Itaguare Beach Private Tour with Indigenous Tribe from Santos

Itaguare Beach Private Tour with Indigenous Tribe from Santos

We invite you to take a journey with us and be introduced to the Ribeirão Silveira Guarani Indigenous reservation combined with a beach time. The idea is to strengthen ties with the Indian population, increase knowledge and, thus, gain more respect for their culture and history through remarkable experiences. In the area occupied by 550 visitor-friendly Indians, hunting, fishing, planting and elaboration of handicrafts are practiced. Unlike tribes from remote north and west of Brazil that have greater visibility, urban Indians often struggle to be seen and heard due to the proximity to the largest urban areas in the country, but despite the hardships faced in the last five centuries, they graciously allow guests to have a rare glimpse into their life and culture. After enjoying a delicious lunch, we drive 20 minutes to one of the most gorgeous beach in the state. A deserted beach with crystal clear waters, natural pools and streams that flow into the sea, ideal for ecotourism.
